From Rosa's Yummy Yums


  • 1 Cup 240g/ml – 250g/ml Water, lukewarm
  • 2 Tbs 30g Unsalted butter, at room temperature and creamed
  • 1 Egg ~63g
  • 3 1/4 Cups 433g Plain white flour
  • 1/4 Cup 53g Castor sugar
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbs Instant yeast
  • 1 Egg yolk + 1 Tsp water


  • Sprinkle the yeast into the water and leave for 5 to 10 minutes, until frothy. Stir to dissolve.
  • In a big bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well.
  • Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured working surface and knead for about 10 minutes until you’ve made a soft, smooth dough.
  • Place the dough in a clean and lightly greased bowl.
  • Cover it with a towel and let rise for about 1 (or1-1/2) hour, until doubled in size.
  • Divide the dough into 8 pieces and shape each piece into a flattened ball.
  • Place the buns on greased baking sheets, cover with a towel and let rise 30 to 40 minutes, until they’re quite puffy and doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F).
  • Glaze the buns with the egg yolk and water mixture, then sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Bake the buns for 12 to 15 minutes, until they are golden brown.
  • Remove them from the oven and cool them on a wire rack.
