There is nothing better than homemade fresh buns, and it’s not even difficult to make them. This recipe is perfect for burgers or a sunday morning breakfast with the family. One thing for sure they gonna beg for more.
Ingredients (for 5 buns)
0,4 cup warm milk
1 tablespoon sugar
half teaspoon salt, or 2 pinches
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large beaten egg
3,5 tablespoons sour cream
15 tablespoons flour (10,5 oz)
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
In a large bowl, stir together warm milk, yeast, and sugar. Let it stand until it’s creamy, for about 10 minutes.
To the yeast mixture, add the oil, sour cream,salt and the half of the egg. Slowly stir in the flour, until the dough has pulled away from the sides of the bowl. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until it’s smooth and elastic, at least 10 minutes (this is a really good exercise for your lower arm muscles). Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place until it doubled in volume, for about 1 hour.
Deflate the dough, and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 5 equal pieces, and form into round balls. Place on lightly greased baking sheets at least 2 inches apart. Cover the balls with a damp cloth, and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.
Glaze the buns with the remaining egg. For the nice golden brown color I glazed mine 3 times.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 356 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Bake for 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
