75 Minute Bakery Style Buns

Trying new recipes is always an interesting experience. Sometimes recipes that sound good on paper (or on the Internet) does not always translate into delicious food. But when you come across those gems where the results far exceed expectations, I cannot help but jump for joy. Those recipes I earmark and make it again and again.

Folks, this is one of those amazing recipes you will come back to! These buns were perfect for my pulled pork sandwiches as they were sturdy enough to hold in all the barbecue sauce but soft and fluffy. These buns rival those you buy at a bakery. Not to mention the other perk of making your own buns: your house will smell wonderful.

These buns make excellent hamburger buns and I think they would be equally delicious as hot dog buns. I cannot wait to make them again. The only thing I will change next time is that I will make a double batch and freeze some for later.

4 to 5 cups all purpose flour, divided
5 tsp (0.5 ounce) active dry yeast
1 cup milk
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp salt

1. In a stand mixer, stir together 2 cups of flour and yeast.

2. In another bowl or measuring cup, mix milk, water, oil, sugar and salt together. Heat in the microwave until lukewarm, about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes. Stir again to make sure the sugar is mixed in.

3. Pour the liquid mixture into the stand mixer fitted with a flat beater. Beat until the mixture is smooth (about 3 minutes).

4. In your stand mixer, switch to a dough hook. Add in the remaining dough 1/2 cup at a time until it forms a soft dough that pulls away from the bowl. (I used all 5 cups of flour).

5. Lightly flour a cutting board or counter top. Turn out the dough and allow it to rest under a bowl for about 15 minutes. (I used my stand mixer bowl).

6. Shape the dough into 24 slightly flat buns (or you can also make 12 slightly flat buns). Place dough on baking sheet(s) lined with parchment paper. Cover with a tea towel or plastic wrap and allow it to rise until it has doubled in size (about 45 minutes).

7. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

8. Bake the buns for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Allow the buns to cool slightly before eating. Store in a tightly covered container for 2 days or in the fridge for 4 days.
