Slider Buns

So today it’s all about the buns. These look a little intimidating to make, but are actually super easy. And they look pretty time-consuming, but they are really not! So forget about all the excuses you might have and make them because seriously homemade and store-bought buns, just can’t compare!

And by the way, I can’t breathe. I’m still soo uncomfortable full from last night’s dinner. It was more like dinner experience. Ahhmazing. More about that tomorrow! For now I will just step on the scale and cry and after that hit the gym. Speaking of the gym, I’ve been ridiculously unmotivated and haven’t set foot in it in for over a week, so this needs to change asap so I don’t have to go shopping for bigger pants lol.

Stars: 5

Level: Moderate

Comments: These rolls are soo cute! They are soft with a slight crunch and I love the sesame seeds on top. Working with yeast always makes me nervous but this recipe is very easy to follow so don’t worry you’ve got this!

Negatives: None

Will I make these again? Yes!

Anyhow, let’s make some buns.

Pretty simple list of ingredients! Milk, rapid yeast, butter, unbleached all-purpose flour, eggs, sesame seeds, honey and salt! You probably already have everything in your pantry 🙂

Combine warm water, yeast and honey, stir and let it sit for about 10-15 mins or until it’s foamy!

Melt some butter, add some milk and 1 egg and whisk to combine. Transfer to the bowl of your stand mixer.

Add the yeast mixture to your stand mixer and top with salt and 2 cups flour.

With a rubber spatula stir to combine until all the flour is incorporated. Add the remaining flour. With dough hooks knead the dough just a couple of mins until it’s elastic and shiny. Transfer the dough to oiled bowl and turn to coat a few times. Let it rise for about an hour until doubled in size.

The dough is doubled in size and it’s time to make rolls!

Divide to dough into 14-18 balls (depending on the size you want them) and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheets. Let them rise for another 30-60mins.

Make an egg wash with egg and a little water and brush each roll with some. Top with sesame seeds and bake in 350F preheated oven for 12-15 mins or until golden brown and gorgeous!
