In spite of searching the net I couldn’t get the recipe. So I decided to follow my gut feeling and experiment. I chose the eggless burger bun recipe as I love the taste of it. As for the filling, I decided to make some apple filling. Let me confess..I had a whole lot of butterflies in my stomach.

Both J and D loved the bread so much that they were disappointed to find out that I had made only
