Slightly sweet, fluffy, dense, and buttery.
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons warm milk
  • 1¾ teaspoons quick rise yeast
  • 2½ tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 2½ tablespoons butter, softened
  • Sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. Combine one cup of warm water, the milk, yeast, and sugar. Let stand until foamy, about five minutes. Meanwhile, beat one egg.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk flours with salt. Add butter and rub into flour between your fingers, making crumbs. Stir in yeast mixture and beaten egg until a dough forms. Scrape dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Shape the dough into a ball and return it to bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, one to two hours.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using dough scraper or pizza wheel, divide dough into 8 equal parts. Gently roll each into a ball and arrange 2 to 3 inches apart on baking sheet. Cover loosely with a clean kitchen towel and let buns rise in a warm place for one to two hours.
  5. Set a large shallow pan of water on oven floor. Preheat oven to 400 degrees with rack in center. Beat remaining egg with 1 tablespoon water and brush some on top of the buns. Sprinkle on sesame seeds. Bake, turning sheet halfway through baking, until tops are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
