Light and Golden Burger Buns
One of my pet peeves is big gloppy burger buns. So when I saw this I knew I would try it as I love to make bread. This is also a very fragrant recipe and you will love the bread smells your oven will treat you with. Here are the ingredients you will need:
3 T. warm milk ( I microwave for 40 seconds in a tea cup)
1 C. warm water from the tap
2 t. instant yeast
2 1/2 T. sugar
1 1/2 t. salt
1 large egg at room temperature
3 C. bread flour (I prefer King Arthur)
1/3 C. all-purpose flour (I prefer King Arthur)
2 1/2 T. soft butter
For the topping:
1 large egg beaten with 1 T. water for egg wash
Add the milk, water, yeast, sugar, salt, and egg to the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment and mix briefly to combine. Add the flours to the bowl and mix until incorporated. Mix in the soft butter. Switch to dough hook and knead on low speed for 7 minutes. The dough is slack and a bit tacky but you want to avoid adding extra flour which will create tough buns.
