12 fluffy buns

Whether you’re new to making breads or a master, this Kaya Soft Bread recipe will surprise you with its ease! Of course, there’ll be waiting but once you see how soft and stringy they turn out – you’ll be happy waiting.
With a stand mixer (we love this slick, sexy Smeg Stand Mixer in Slate Grey), let the machine do the heavy lifting while you enjoy the fun parts. All’s left is to use a good bake pan, like this Deep Pan by Smeg, to distribute heat perfectly giving you delicious bakes all the time.
BTW, Smeg is launching their first cookware series! Check out their pop up at Takashimaya, B1, from 12 – 31 Oct 2021 or here.
