There's only one way to prove how awesome these buns are. Photographic evidence.
Puffy, airy, soft, delicious.
And Exhibit B: the recipe.
I took another stab at the vast amount of internet Tapioca Buns, and was intrigued by this version of Tapioca Cheesebuns. And it was the best spray and pray I've ever attempted.
Exhibit C: Why you should always follow the real recipe the first time.
On the left: the second batch. On the right: the first attempt.
And now I'm sad because even though I made 2 batches within 48 hours, all of my cheesebuns are gone. When I make my next batch, I'm going to hoard all of the cheesebuns.
