Cook Time12 minutes
Total Time2 hours 12 minutes


  • 400 g flour 3 cups
  • 7 g instant dry yeast 7g (2tsp) or one packet
  • 5 g salt 5g (1tsp) if using unsalted butter or 2g (½ teaspoon) salt if you use salted butter.
  • 42 g honey 42g (2T) honey or 21g (1 tablespoon sugar)
  • 240 ml milk 1 cup, lukewarm milk (105f/40c), 240ml is the same as 240grams
  • 1 egg
  • 28 g softened butter 2T – make sure you reduce salt if using salted butter
  • 1 beaten egg for brushing optional
  • Sesame seeds optional


  • Start by adding the flour, yeast, and salt to a bowl and mix.
  • Then add the egg, milk, and honey.
  • Mix by hand or with a mixer on low with the flat beater attachment until it is a shaggy dough, about 30 seconds.
  • Scrape the edges of the bowl if necessary.
  • Switch to the dough hook and knead on medium speed for 4 minutes or by hand for 9 minutes.
  • Add the butter and knead for another minute.
  • Shape the dough into a ball.
  • Put the dough in an oiled container and let it double in size at 80 degrees. About one hour.
  • Punch out the air so the buns don’t have big air bubbles.
  • Place on a floured surface and fold the sides up and over itself to shape into a ball.
  • Divide the dough into 8-10 80g balls.
  • Pinch and tuck each ball until smooth.
  • Final shape each ball by placing it on the counter, put your claw over it, and rotate it counter clockwise a few times.
  • Place them all on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Flatten them down thin so they bake as a bun, not a ball.
  • Cover for an hour at 80 degrees.
  • Remove all bubbles from the beaten egg with a paper towel.
  • Brush the buns with the beaten egg and sprinkle on the sesame seeds.
  • Bake at 375f/190c for 12-15 minutes until they turn golden brown.
  • Then let them cool on a wire rack.
  • Use a bread knife to slice them down the middle.
  • Butter and toast them, add your patties and toppings, and you’re good to go.
