hello aunt yochana,

i've looked through all of your bun recipes and it's all yummy! would like to ask about the filings for the buns like the yam and the sweet potato and ice cream filling, can it be prepared a day head and be kept for later use?

Hi jess,

all fillings can be made in advance.

I normally use a bread maker for buns and wonder whether I could use your bun and bread recipes - breadmaker method.

Hi Beth,

Yeah you can. I have a Sony bread maker - I used No. 10 , just for mixing and proving only then take it out and weigh and roll into desired shapes.
