and the sakura buns. I don’t have a reference on how to shape the sakura buns. But it is pretty easy. You just filling in the dough as per usual, flatten it a bit and using a knife make 5 mini slits around the circumferece bread at regular intervals before you leave it to proof.
Both of the fillings for these buns are made with store bought red bean paste, while the recipe for the dough is the same dough i used for my rotiboy.
