How to make it

  • Manual Method:
  • 1. In a glass measuring cup, combine one cup warm water, the milk, yeast and sugar. Let stand until foamy, about five minutes. Meanwhile, beat one egg.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk flours with salt. Add butter and rub into flour between your fingers, making crumbs. Using a dough scraper, stir in yeast mixture and beaten egg until a dough forms. Scrape dough onto clean, well-floured counter and knead, scooping dough up, slapping it on counter and turning it, until smooth and elastic, 8 to 10 minutes. The dough will be on the sticky side so it can be a bit messy, but keep in mind that the more flour you knead in, the tougher the buns will get. Try to leave them tackier than you would a round loaf.
  • 3. Shape dough into a ball and return it to bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about an hour.
  • Bread Machine Method:
  • Add ingredients in order suggested by your bread machine manufacturer. Run on dough cycle. Remove finished dough to a lightly floured surface.
  • Roll half of the dough to about 1/4-inch thickness or slightly more. Cut out with a 1 1/2-inch cutter. You could make your sandwiches slightly larger using a 2-inch cutter for slider buns. Repeat with the remaining dough. For a nicer shape, take each dough round and form into a ball, then flatten slightly with your hand. Arrange on a parchment lined baking sheet about 2 to 3 inches apart. Cover with a towel and let rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  • If topping with sesame seeds, brush each bun with egg wash and sprinkle them on. See Photo
  • Bake in a preheated 375° for 15 to 18 minutes, or until browned. Remove from oven and let cool on rack. Split the cooled buns and fill as desired.

    These are perfect for my needs. the smaller buns aren't readily available here, so have been pondering just how to approach the need. I think these will just fit the bill. Thanks; for the great post.
