Wake up to citrusy warm 4 ingredient lemon cheese buns and your day just got sweeter and brighter! Tender, moist and somewhat addictive, these lemon buns can be made in a flash and can be warmed for gooey love. Why not save yourself time and energy, but still have something decidedly decadent! You don’t have to be a fancy pastry chef to create magic. And, these lemon cheese buns, a cross between a lemon pastry and cinnamon bun, sure do prove that point!
This recipe came out of my cravings for something bright and refreshing but also something with a depth of flavour. What developed was an idea to create my take on a mango salad (Thai) with a miso-based dressing (Japanese). After making it the first time, my mother frequently asks for it to accompany our meals.
One of my FAVORITE recipes that my mom would make when I lived at home was chocolate banana nut muffins. Whenever I’d notice the bananas starting to go bad, I would be like “oooh mom can you make the muffins?!” and she always would.
With this recipe, I originally wanted to make banana bread, but I realized that our bread loaf pans are at home (it’s baseball season so we’re traveling right now). I figured I’d just use muffin pans and call it a day. But the muffin pans and brown bananas reminded me of my mom’s recipe so I decided to stray from my original idea and let my mom inspire this recipe!
