Not a Ball

I like to walk into bakeries just to window shop. Then I read about these Soft Raisin Balls at "Eat what, Eat where" but I have never seen them when I window shopped at Lavender Bakery so the next time I went there I opened my eyes and looked and saw them so I bought a ready-packed bag of 5 for MYR5 nett. Very easy to eat, light butter taste and milky, lightly sweet, not that fluffy mainly because they have cooled down so they were a bit dense. Good to eat with bitter coffee. Not big so you may think MYR1 each is a bit on the expensive side.

  1. I only like fluffy breads. I don't drink coffee so I if I have this kind of bun I'll dip in my hot chocolate drink instead.

    1. Hot chocolate drink with a bit of bitterness will be as good as coffee with this bread.

  2. I like curry bread and luncheon meat bread, at times I don't mind read bean bread

  4. perfect for breakfast.. and yeah, I'm a coffee boy so I will definitely pair this with coffee (but not the super bitter one... just good and sweet enough to taste)

    1. The coffee has to be a little bitter and not all sweet to bring out the buns' sweet taste.

  6. I love soft buns. Now I am into potato raisin buns from one of the local bakeries here. So tasty that I can finish the whole pack (6).

  7. There's Lavender bakery in MV, nearby Aeon Big, everything is good.. The cheese and fruit tarts are nice.. But I usually go for buns or puffs in the bakery, like tuna buns, chicken mushroom puffs, egg&ham buns.. Nice..

  9. They're probably made with natural organic flour with no preservatives and all those health jargon related sh*t, that's why it is more expensive at RM 1 per bun. If it is nice then ok lah.

    Darn, I forgot about this one. I should have went and grabbed a bag of these when I gave up on that Korean KFC. My mom would probably love these!

  10. Thanks for the mention, Mun. I was hoping you would like these as they're not sweet. Yes, great eaten with coffee (but not bitter coffee but slightly sweet coffee for me). How many can you eat at one go? I can eat all five! :D But I only see one missing....did you eat only one?

  21. RM 5 is a decent price. I usually go to Donutes (the 24 hour Taiwan bakery) and they sell it for RM 6+ for the same size, close to RM 7.
