Main Ingredients

2 1/2 tablespoons of bread flour (to make water roux)

1 cup of water

2 1/2 cups of bread flour

5 tbs of sugar

7 grams of yeast

2 eggs

1/2 cup of milk

1/4 cup of room temperature butter

1 tbs of oil

1 tsp of salt

2 tbs of sesame seeds


1We need to make the magical ingredient which brings it all together, the water roux. In a saucepan, over medium heat, add the small amount of flour and the water. Whisk until it becomes smooth and slightly thick. Transfer to another bowl and set aside, you don't want to use this until it gets to room temperature.

2In a small bowl, add the milk, the yeast and the sugar. Cover with glad wrap and leave for 10 minutes in order to activate your yeast.

3In another bowl (we are using the kitchenaid), add the flour, the butter and the salt. Mix together, until the butter has crumbled to smaller pieces that are not noticeable.

4Lightly beat one of the eggs.

5Create a well in the centre of the dry mixture and add your room temperature water roux, the yeast mixture and the lightly beaten egg.

6Knead this all together for about 15 minutes at a medium speed (if using a mixer). The dough should be slightly sticky and elastic. If it's too sticky, add more flour in small increments at a time. If it's too dry, add a little bit more water.

7Transfer the dough to a bowl that has been well oiled. Shape the dough into a ball, ensuring it's covered in the oil. Cover the bowl with glad wrap and wait until its doubled in size. We waited around 1 1/2 hours.

8Push down the dough, releasing the air and split into 6 dough balls. You can make more if you think the size of the buns will be too large. Flatten one of the dough balls and then pinch the sides to the centre. Flip the ball upside down and roll gently until you get a nice round shape. Repeat for all the dough balls and place on baking tray with baking paper.

9Wait another hour for the second rise.

10Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celcius, fan forced,

11Put the remaining egg in a bowl with a slight dash of water. Mix together with a fork, then paint this mixture onto the dough balls. Add the sesame seeds to the top of the dough balls.

12Bake the buns for 20 minutes. They should turn a nice light golden colour. They're a great bun for burgers!
