Super Soft Rose Buns
Paying visits to the bakery was my most favorite thing to do as a child. Can’t deny that I still love doing that. Seeing various types of buns through that glass door is such a treat to my eyes. Always used to get confused if I should buy the round ones or elongated ones. However the point is that, the love for buns starts in your childhood and that love continues to grow as you grow. So, that love is the reason for creating this beautiful and tasty Rose buns recipe.
Another thing that I want to remind you today is how we used to more often eat rose as a snack. Be it in Gulkand or in breads or in desserts. That tradition of using rose is slowly disappearing. So, I thought of quickly reminding you bakers that yes we can still use rose for desserts and breads. It’s such a yummy addition for a flavorful snack. After all, the benefits of adding rose petals is so much more than its incredible taste itself.
Did you know that eating rose petals reduces stress and gives instant relaxation? Did you know that rose petals are good for diabetes? Did you know that rose petals reduce the risk of heart diseases? Yes these are some of the main things not to forget when we think of adding rose to our snacks.
The texture of cashew butter, the flavor of rose petals, just the right amount of sweetness – I know you can imagine that heavenly taste blending in your mouth.
