I used this recipe to make burger buns and they came out killer good with tasty cheese chunks. I did use the machine to do the mixing and kneading and that simplified the whole process. Great bread, great buns and great burgers!. Made for ZWT 7.
- 1 1⁄4 ounces active dry yeast
- 1⁄4 cup warm water, about 110 degrees Fahrenheit
- 1⁄4 cup milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 3 eggs
- 2 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup swiss cheese, 1/4-inch dice
Directions See How It's Made
- Dissolve yeast in the warm water. Add milk, sugar, salt, butter, eggs, and half of the flour.
- Using an electric mixer, beat for 10 minutes. Add remaining flour; blend in with a wooden spoon (or use a dough hook) until dough is smooth and elastic.
- Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for about 1 to 2 hours, or until doubled in bulk. Punch down. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
- Punch down dough; form a flattened ball. Knead in the cheese until pieces are well distributed throughout the dough. Shape into a round ball.
- Place in a buttered 8-inch pie plate. Let rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 to 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 375°. Bake for about 30 minutes, until nicely browned.
- Loaf should sound hollow when rapped on the bottom. Brush with a little melted butter while still hot. Remove from pie pan and cool on a rack.
