Soft Buns

soft buns
This soft bun recipe is simple to make especially if you are using a mixer attached with a dough hook. These soft buns can be served in multiple ways. If you make the buns by adding raisins or other dry fruits serve it with butter, jam or a buttercream made with butter and icing sugar. 
If you make it plain without adding raisins or other dry fruits, it can be used as dinner rolls, burger buns, savoury buns or Indian pav with homemade patties and chutneys.

I have seen many variations of baking pan cookies that starts off on the stove but is baked. However, this recipe from Nadiya's Netflix show is completely done on the Stovetop. We have made this recipe a few times and love it. These cookies also known as skillet cookies or Pizookie are prepared and cooked on the stove  in low heat for 20 minutes.
