Sandwich Buns

Sandwich Buns

Slightly sweet soft buns are great for both sandwiches and hamburgers, or even by themselves for breakfast or a snack.  A slightly sticky dough and melted butter applied before and after baking will keep the crust pliable. If you want to add a topping like sesame seeds, you can brush the rolls with egg white and sprinkle on the topping just before going into the oven. Or, try our Onion Buns--great with cheese or for hamburgers or pulled pork!

¾ - 1 cup lukewarm water, or part whey

2 tbls butter, melted

1 large egg

3 ½ cups all-purpose flour

¼ cup sugar

1 ¼ tsp salt

1 tsp mace, optional

1 dash Fruit Fresh, optional

1 tbls quick-rise yeast

3 tbls melted butter

If you warm the water for 1 minute on high in the microwave, it should be warm enough to melt the butter.  Otherwise, room temperature water will prevent the butter from hardening once it has been melted.  Add butter, egg, and optional whey; whisk briskly.

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl and make a well in the centre.  Add the liquid mix and stir thoroughly.  Knead on a lightly floured board for 10-15 minutes.  Place in an oiled bowl and coat dough ball; cover with plastic wrap.

 

Allow the dough to rise in a warm place until almost doubled in bulk, then Stretch and fold.  Repeat rising another time or two.

Roll dough into a long cylinder and divide into 8 or 10 balls.  Place flattened balls onto parchment-lined sheetpan and flatten further using a rolling pin, tumbler, or hamburger press.  Brush with melted butter, cover with oiled plastic wrap, and allow to rise until doubled.

Preheat oven to 350° F with a pan of water on the bottom.  Bake buns for 15-18 minutes, until richly browned.  Brush again with melted butter and cool on a wire rack.
