Butter Bun

This is one of the most demanding item in bakeries of Kerala. Kids are very fond of this buns because it is filled with sweet cream. This cream is made with only butter and sugar. These buns are not the baked, it is fried ones. So anyone can make it without oven. This is almost similar to doughnuts. So give it a try at home.

  • Butter – 25 grams
  • Water – 2/3 cup

For Cream

  • Butter – 40 grams
  • Icing sugar – 1 cup
  • Milk – 1.5 tablespoon

  2. Divide the dough into equal balls, shape into round and slightly press to flatten. Cover and keep aside  for 15 minutes.
