How to Bake Fresh Buns

3:57 PM

November 17th is National Bread Baking Day and what better way to celebrate than by whipping up a batch of these yummy buns. Maybe you can even share with your scruffy-faced husband a la No-Shave November.

1 cup warm milk
2 T water
2 T sugar or honey (stevia won't work - it does not provide food for yeast)
2 T margarine, butter or oil
1 pkg yeast
3 c flour
1 tsp salt

1. Mix together first 5 ingrefients and let sit.
2. After 5 minutes, mix flour and salt together and mix in with other, wet ingredients forming a ball of dough.
3. Divide into how many buns you'd like to make (I recommend 6 or if you're doing mini-buns for sliders than 8 - 10). Put these smaller balls onto a cookie sheet.
4. Let rise for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 375.
5. Bake for 15 minutes or until slightly golden.

I like to add extra ingredients like sesame seeds on top for a burger bun or caraway seeds for a sandwich bun. You could also top with olive oil and rosemary, or try mixing shredded cheese into the dough.

Enjoy your National Bread Baking Day!
