Sweet Potato Bun with Cheese Topping/ Straight Dough Method

Pin It Now!

I like this recipe as the added sweet potatoes do make the different to the bread texture. It gives soft fluffy buns. Not forgetting the natural bright purple colour. With the brown cheese topping sure add bonus to these sweet buns.
