Burger Buns

Prep time: 15 minutes Proofing time: 90 minutes Baking time: 22 minutes

Serves: 6



All-purpose flour 2 cup + 2 tbsp

Warm water 1/2 cup 

Water 1/2 cup

Salt 1/2 tsp

Sugar 3 tbsp

Milk powder 3 tbsp

Instant yeast 2 tsp

Oil 3 tbsp

Cold milk to brush

Sesame seeds 1 tbsp 

Butter to brush after baking


Heat a small frying pan add 2 tbsp of all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup of water, stir it well so it becomes a paste without any lump, you need to cook that till it thickens well, once done keep it aside.

In a bowl add salt, sugar, milk powder, and yeast mix it and add 1/2 cup of warm water, stir it and wait for few seconds for the yeast to activate.

In a large bowl take the flour and the paste that we made, now add the yeast mixture and start kneading the dough, while kneading add the oil 1 tbsp at a time.

After you have added the oil and everything is well incorporated take the dough of a flat surface and knead the dough for at least 10 minutes. 

Keep the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth in a warm place for at least 1 hour.

Once the dough has doubled in size, tip it onto a lightly floured surface and split the dough into 6 even pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper or a silicone liner. Leave the dough on the baking tray by covering again by a damp cloth for 30 minutes– the buns will almost double in size again and will go puffy.

Preheat the oven @ 180°C.

Brush each bun with a little cold milk. This is what gives them that glossy golden brown look. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake for 20-22 minutes until golden brown all over.

Once the buns are out of the oven brush them with a little butter, this gives a glow on your buns😊.

Your homemade burger buns are ready.

Note :

The temperature of the oven varies from one another, so keep a close eye on the buns after 18 minutes, so your buns don't get burnt. Mine are always perfectly done in 22 minutes😊.
