By Chef Adriana Urbina

Aromatic spices and a smoky, nutty flavor come together in these easy to bake buns. Perfectly chewy and delightfully dense, this is bread at its best.

A day-making bun

"I’m obsessed with bread, and these buns are some of the best I’ve ever had. A very dear Colombian friend of mine used to bake these and share them with me at work. Words can’t express how much happiness they brought to my day.”

-Adriana Urbina

Spices in this Recipe Card

Caraway

Native to: Western Asia, Europe, and North Africa
Plant family: Apiaceae
Raw form: Fruit

Caraway has a nutty, bittersweet taste that’s sharp with a hint of citrus and anise, giving soups, sausages, vegetables, and even liqueurs a zingy bite.

Often mistaken for seeds, the tiny beads of the caraway spice are actually the fruit of the plant, which also happens to belong to the same plant family as carrots.

Q
Breakfast, lunch, dinner – which one is best?
A

I’ve always looked forward to waking up because I absolutely love breakfast!!! When I was a kid we used to have a big delicious breakfast all together and it was the best time of the day.

Q
What’s your favorite off-the-beaten-path spice you wish more people knew about?
A

Juniper. I think it gives a very special ​piney ​flavor​ with hints of citrus. If you've had gin before, you'll recognize the distinct ​taste​ of ​juniper.

Q
You’re in charge of snacks for the road trip. What are you packing?
A

Quality prosciutto, bread, a good selection of funky cheeses, lots of different fruits and vegetables, chips and guacamole, and roasted nuts.
