Burger Buns

March 7, 2014

After 2 successful attempts of baking the Pull Apart bread my joy for baking bread has increased. The aroma while baking bread  in the house is awesome.  I simply love it.  Baking gives me so much joy that I just cannot explain.

Milk - 1.1\4  cup
Unsalted butter - 2.1\2 tablespoon (I used ghee 1.1/2tlbsp and 1tlbsp salted butter)
Sugar - 2 tablespoon
Rapid rising yeast - 2.1\4 teaspoon
All purpose flour - 3.1\2 cups
Wheat gluten  1\4 cup
Egg - 1
Salt - 3/4 teaspoon
Milk - 1\4 cup or Beaten egg ( for brushing on top )
Sesame seeds - 2 tbsp ( for sprinkling to top )

Mix milk, unsalted butter and sugar in a bowl. Heat till warm to touch then add yeast . Keep aside for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile add flours and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the milk mixture and egg and mix to make a dough.  Take out the dough on a lightly floured surface and keep kneading with the your hands for 10-12 minutes by stretching and folding it for 10 minutes. If using a dough kneader, knead on medium speed for 10 minutes). Lightly oil a bowl and transfer the dough in the bowl.
Cover the bowl with a moist cloth or a cling wrap and keep it in a warm place for 2 hours, till the dough doubles in size.  Lightly punch the dough and knead on the counter for a minute.  Divide the dough into 10 equal pieces.  Lightly oil your work surface and roll each piece into a ball on it.   Keep the balls on a oiled tray, keep 2 inches gap between the balls, cover with a cling wrap which is lightly greased.  Keep in a warm place for an hour or till it doubles in size.

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Brush the top of the buns with milk/egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Place the tray in the center rack of the oven. Bake the burgers for 15 - 20 minutes, till they are golden brown from the top.

We enjoyed these Burger Buns,with a slice of cheese.
