Soft and Fluffy Pull Apart Buns

Hello Everyone,

A new post after a long time.

Today's post is about Pull Apart Buns made with yeast, haven't yet started on the sourdough journey :-(  Actually there's some yeast left in my freezer and I want to use it up before I get into sourdoughs. For the initial rise, I refrigerated the dough overnight and the next day, shaped and gave a second rise at room temperature.

In India, these pull apart buns are called 'pavs' and are usually served with a very popular Mumbai street food called Pav Bhaji, bhaji essentially being a mixture of vegetables that is cooked with a mixture of spices and tastes just amazing. Traditionally, these buns are made with all purpose (plain) flour rather than bread flour, and so that's what I decided to go with.

 

 

 The texture was very light and fluffy as you can see in the image above. Overall I was pretty happy with the final result, just need to add a little more salt next time.

I can almost smell them! Way up here in Alaska!

I hadn't planned on baking today, but those are almost dragging me into my kitchen! Good job, and I know they are delicious!

Those buns look great.  I like AP flour too for soft buns but mine aren't as nice as yours.

Happy Baking

You most likely know a lot more than me about breads. So I don't know what I should say about your buns. Could be the photography? ;-)
