Pan de Mej [Pani de Mie] Sweet corn buns

This past weekend I stayed at home and decided Sunday my oven was going to go into overtime.  I had the bug to be in the kitchen and do some major cooking.  And when our big baby – Rufus (the dog) started to bark at 7:00am to be let out, I took that as a sign that I needed to put on the apron and get to work.
