We had Pulled Pork today, and I made these amazing Burger Buns for the Pulled Pork. I tried a new recipe and I will stick with this recipe in the future.
The difference in this recipe is, that you cook your dough, or a portion of your dough. Its not much more work, and the difference is incredible.
You start with the portion of the dough, that needs to be cooked. You take 60g Milk, 25g Water and 20g Flour. Put everything in a cooking pot and whisk constantly while cooking on high heat. Whisk and cook until it gets solid. Transfer the dough into a different bowl and let it cool down.
For the main dough you need 120g warm Milk, 9g yeast, 320g Flour, 1 Egg, 1 Egg Yolk, 1Tsp. Salt, 1Tsp. Sugar and 45g melted butter.
Combine warm Milk with Yeast and Sugar. Let it stand for 5 min.
Put the Flour, the Egg and the Egg yolk, Salt, melted Butter in the mixer with a dough hook, add the Milk and the cooked dough. Knead the dough for 6 min.
Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it stand for one hour, or till it’s doubled in size.
Gently deflate the dough and divide it into 8 pieces.
Roll each piece into a perfect round ball. Place each piece on a baking tray, covered with parchment paper or well greased.
Cover the buns with plastic wrap and let them rise again for 30 min.
In the meantime, preheat the oven to 410 Fahrenheit.
Make a egg wash with 1 Egg yolk and 2 Tbs. of Water. Brush each bun with the egg wash, put some sesame on each bun and bake them for 15 min.
