Serves: 8 buns
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup warm milk (100ºF)
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • ¼ cup granulated whole cane sugar (I use sucanat or rapadura)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 to 3½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon of water
  • Sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Combine the milk and yeast in a small bowl and stir until dissolved. Mix in the sugar, butter, and egg, then add the salt and flour.
  2. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  3. Set aside in a warm place to rise in a covered bowl for 60 to 90 minutes.
  4. Punch down the dough and divide into 8 equal balls. Press each ball into a 3-inch circle. Rise for 30 minutes, or until the buns are round and puffy. Brush the tops of the buns with the egg/water mixture, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  5. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, or until the buns are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. These are best if eaten within 1 to 2 days of being made-- store leftovers in an airtight container.
