½ tsp salt
7g packet of yeast
200mls Sno-Pro
10g psyllium husk

For the filling cream buns:
200ml vegan cream
150g jam

  2. Mix the Sno-Pro and psyllium husk allow to thicken for 10 minutes.

  8. Place onto a lined baking sheet, cover and allow to stand in a warm place until the buns have doubled in size.

  2. Whip the vegan cream until it is a thick consistency.
