My sister-in-law suggested this recipe to me for hamburger buns. I may never go back to store bought again!
1 cup warm water
3 tbsps warm milk
2 tsps dry yeast
2 1/2 tbsps sugar
2 large eggs
3 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tbsps butter, softened
Combine water, milk, yeast and sugar and set aside to start activating the yeast for 5 minutes.
In a large mixer bowl add flour, salt and butter and mix until crumbly.
Stir in the yeast mixture and 1 beaten egg. Mix until the dough forms a ball, about 5 minutes.
Turn your oven on it's lowest temperature for 1 minute, then shut off. Oil the bowl then put the dough ball in, cover with a damp tea towel and place in the oven until doubled, 1-3 hours.
Once the dough rises gently shape somewhat into a log and cut into 8 pieces like this.
Tuck the corners underneath and form into a bun shape. Place 2-3 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise again for 1-2 hours.
Beat the remaining egg with a tbsp of water and just before putting them in the over brush the egg wash on the tops.
Put a pan of water on the lower rack of the oven then bake the buns at 400 F for 15-20 minutes.
Cool on a rack before slicing.
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
