Hi Auntie Yochana, I love these buns! They look so shiny and beautiful. Oh by the way, is it possible to include in your posts next time the servings a recipe yields or how many people it will serve? So I will know if I need to adjust accordingly since there's only me and my husband at home. Thanks so much Auntie!

Hi - I live in the U.S. Can you please tell me where I can find flour improver? Thank you!

Hi anonymous,

Just omit if you don't have bread improver. It's not compulsory. Search around bread shops or bakeware shops. some supermarts might sell it too.

Hi Aunty,

Would like to try this recipe this week, is the lemon topping jam here refering to lemon curd?

Many thanks in advance for your kind advice.

Hi Beatrice

It's lemon curd or you can use Lemon Jam too.

Hi Auntie Yochana, I'm a big fan of your blog. Can't go without visiting your blog everyday for inspirations. I've just tried the lemon cheese bun today. My first time hand-making bread. It turned out really nice. Didn't use any bread improver/softener. Thank you for sharing.
