When I saw these buns at Grace of Kitchen Corner I bookmarked it right away but only now I have the chance to try it out. This recipe is a keeper as the buns turn out to be really soft and fluffy. I did some minor changes to the topping and added garlic to it. Do go and check out her wonderful blog where she showcase all the beautiful bakes.
