Checkerboard Pull-Apart Sourdough Bun (Pandan with Butterfly Pea)

Updated: Jun 7

My gratitude is beyond words, I just want to thank my dear friend, YL also known as Bake with Paws for the shoutout and encouragement!


Hand-kneading these lovely buns were so therapeutic and enjoyable. I' hope you will find this bake comforting and enjoyable as well. Note, this bread was baked at a lower temperature to retained its natural hue.

Freshly came out from the oven!
