- "On one visit, I came across some Southern Mustafarians heatin' up these sweet balls of dough directly on the planet's scorchin' volcanic crust. The result was this sweet red bread with a cracked, blackened exterior. Looked nearly as impressive as it tasted."
- ―Strono Tuggs, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook
Mustafarian Lava Buns were a type of sweet bread from the planet Mustafar edible by Artiodacs and Southern Mustafarians, a subspecies of the native Mustafarians. Made from a dough, the bread was cooked by Southern Mustafarians directly on the world's hot, volcanic surface. The resulting buns were ball-shaped, red, and had a cracked black exterior. At some point, the Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs visited the planet and found a group of Mustafarians baking the buns. Finding the bread's look impressive, he tasted it and found its flavor to be even more so.
At some point after the Battle of Takodana in 34 ABY, Tuggs included a recipe for Mustafarian Lava Buns in his cookbook, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook. He also included his story of visiting Mustafar. Tuggs went on to mention that a normal oven would work in place of lava, and that the buns were too good to pass up.
