A group of my foodie friends have been making and praising these Moomie’s buns for years. It took a lovely gift of yeast from the folks at Red Star Yeast to push me into baking these. I was hoping to try their Platinum yeast, but this recipe called for instant…and I had a nice stash of Red Star Quick Rise Yeast which worked perfectly. I was also the winner of a Red Star Yeast giveaway featured on Shulie’s delectable blog, Food Wanderings. I will be baking LOTS of yummy breads. I tracked down the origin of this recipe to Ellen who shared it on the KAF online community…to rave reviews. I noticed she also had a cinnamon bun recipe…those will be up next!
