    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

    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!

      Kittencal, these buns ARE fabulous. Yum. My 8-year-old and I shaped these into hot dog buns and the family scarfed down all but one for dinner. They have great flavor and lovely color. Worked fine with no-trans-fat shortening and skim milk. I replaced some of the bread flour with soy flour, and opted out of the sesame seeds, instead brushing with egg white to make them shiny and then following up with some butter to make them soft. Delicious. Thanks, KC!
