Simple to prepare, the special aspect of these delicious buns is that their crispy crusts resemble the coats of giraffes and tigers.
They can be served with burgers, cold meats, cheese or simply eaten on their own or with butter.

⌚ Prep time: 1h30″+1h rising time
⏱️Baking time: 25/30 minutes
Ingredients for the buns:
300ml lukewarm milk
50g butter at room temperature
4g dry yeast
Ingredients for the topping:
75gr rice flour
90ml lukewarm water
3g dry yeast
15ml olive oil
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
In a large bowl (I used the planetary mixer) mix until the yeast is dissolved in the warm milk, cover and let it ferment for 5 minutes.
After this time, add the flour, mix, add the salt, knead until the flour has absorbed all the milk, place on the work surface and knead for 5 minutes, then add the butter and work until the dough is smooth and homogeneous. If you are using a planetary mixer, the procedure is the same but knead for about 10min at medium-low speed). Put the dough back in the bowl, cover and leave to rise for 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in volume.
Take the dough, divide it into 10 pieces of about 85g each, form small balls and leave them to rest on the oven tray lined with greaseproof paper, well spaced out, for 30″.
Meanwhile, prepare the rice topping.
Put the lukewarm water, yeast, oil and sugar in a bowl and mix well until the yeast is dissolved. Add the flour and mix well with a whisk, then add the salt and mix to form a batter. Leave it to rest for half an hour.
Take the balls and brush them with the rice batter, let them dry for 10 minutes and then coat them again with the batter. Bake at 200° for 25/30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a tray.❤️
