The search for the perfect morning bun was quite the journey. I took inspiration from buns I’ve read about and bakeries visited, assembling a list of admirable qualities and ingredients along the way. I wanted the same glisten, but upped the orange zest and cardamom as a nod to Mexican tradition, and emulated the beautiful crisp exterior and caramelized bottoms by baking them in muffin tins and brushed with parsnip water and maple sugar.
What I ended up with was a “buttery” pastry that we love.
I mailed one to a friend and she said: “I can’t describe how much I enjoyed the delicious morning bun Jorge included in my package. Your morning bun was reminiscent of something my Grandma baked with the perfect marriage of cinnamon and citrus 🍊 exploding in just the right sweetness and so full of flavor. Eating it felt like being hugged. Thank you for gifting it to me and allowing me to try it. 🙏🏻“
