This delicious baked bun is even easier to prepare than our homemade baked char siew bao recipe, and possibly healthier as well.

There’s nothing better than fresh, homemade bread. Here are two easy recipes for how to make the best, pillowy-soft dinner rolls from scratch. Perfect for your Thanksgiving and holiday meals.
Buttery Dinner Rolls
Have you ever wanted to look for a recipe for something and then ended up with so many choices that you are paralyzed on which one to try? Or even more crazily, you try to incorporate a bunch of them into one recipe?
That’s how I was recently while looking for the ultimate dinner rolls. I’ve tried baking buttery dinner rolls using Rose Levy Beranbaum’s recipe from “The Bread Bible” before. They’ve turned out really well but I want something that will knock my socks off and make me want to keep eating them (even though with each buttery bite, more fat makes its way to my hips). That’s what I’m looking for baby!

I LOVE Nutella. (Perhaps you can relate?)
Recently, I found some Nutella on sale at a grocery store here. The price was surprisingly reasonable. The catch? It was going to expire within a month. Ahhh! But so what? The way I eat Nutella, it doesn’t take me all that long to go through a jar of it. So I bought two jars!
I came home and decided that one jar was going into some baked goods. I remember Jaden from Steamy Kitchen doing a "no knead" challah with Nutella and Hazelnuts last year and so I went in search of some recipes. I was planning to do Jaden’s challah but got distracted by another post on Sticky Gooey Creamy Chewy, who did a Nutella-pistachio "no knead" brioche. The picture of the Nutella oozing out of this really soft, yummy-looking bread and topped with pistachios just got me drooling big time. I just had to make it.
