Usually for small quantity bake, I love to use the air fryer to do the job. Unfortunately, I busted it after 3 years (I think it is baking at 200°C for 4 rounds is the cause of it). I must say it is one of the most well used appliances that I never regretted buying.
Anyway, decided to try out this, Cheese and Walnut Bun recipe when I was browsing in the library. I wasn't even sure if it works since I have never try using a pan to make bread.
The first round, I burnt it and thus this is my second attempt.
Findings: The texture is soft and nice. A little on the chewy side. As I said earlier, the cheese and the walnut went well together.
When I flipped over, I did not press the buns down. Thus you can see the browning not very pretty.
