lovely bun!-08 Aug 2013
So nice. Made it in a brownie tray because it's for a food tasting day but it worked really well.-18 Sep 2016
This recipe is great- I usually heat the mash potato before I cream with the sugar. The sugar melts quick and goes to liguid which works well. Very moist bun!-18 Jul 2012(Review from this site AU | NZ)
