    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are the best homemade buns for burgers they bake out soft and light and the dough is a pleasure to work with, they also make wonderful sandwich buns too, this will yield between 12-14 buns depending on how big you make them, I sometimes add in 1/2 teaspoon malt powder but it is not necessary --- Canadian residents can use all-purpose flour, U.S. residents use bread flour

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Proof the yeast in 1 cup warm water with 1 teaspoon sugar; let sit for 10 minutes until foamy.
    2. 2
      In a heavy duty stand mixer, fitted with a kneader hook, add in the 3-1/2 cups flour, 4 tablespoons sugar, melted Crisco, warm milk and salt (and the malt powder if using).
    3. 3
      Add in the proofed yeast; mix to create a soft semi-sticky dough that holds around the blade, adding in more flour as needed (do not add in too much as it will create a heavy bun, dough should be semi-sticky.
    4. 4
      Knead dough for 7-8 minutes.
    5. 5
      Remove dough, and let rest on the counter, covered with a clean dish towel for 10 minutes (this is an important step!).
    6. 6
      Knead the dough gently for 30 seconds with hands.
    7. 7
      Place dough in a large well-greased/oiled bowl.
    8. 8
      Cover, and let rise in a warm spot for 60-90 minutes, or until double in size (I like to rise my dough in the oven, just set oven to 200 degrees and warm for 3 minutes, then turn off the heat while you are making the dough, this will create a perfect temperature to raise dough in, and usually takes only 1 hour to rise with oven method).
    9. 9
      Punch down dough.
    10. 10
      Shape into large balls, and place on a large greased cookie sheet (you should get 12 balls on the sheet).
    11. 11
      Cover with a light clean tea towel, and let rise in a warm place for 30-40 minutes, or until almost doubled (warm oven rise should take 30 minutes.
    12. 12
      Set oven to 375 degrees.
    13. 13
      In a small bowl, mix together 1 egg white with 1 tsp water; whisk/mix well.
    14. 14
      Carefully brush the tops and sides of the buns with the egg/water mixture.
    15. 15
      Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
    16. 16
      Bake for approx.22 minutes, or until golden brown.

      This is an AWESOME recipe, I had made it several times as listed, the last time I made them I was out of milk so I substituted buttermilk, the results were even more amazing!!! I will never buy another store bought bun again.

      Followed the recipe to the T, except that instead of using a stand mixer I used a wooden spoon and my hands. Came out BEAUTIFUL. One of my favorite bread recipes so far, hands down!
