Number of Servings: 16


    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup water
    1/4 cup butter
    4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast
    2 tablespoons white sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1 egg


In a small saucepan, heat milk, water and butter until very warm, 120 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix together 1 3/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Mix milk mixture into flour mixture, and then mix in egg. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes by hand.

Divide dough into 16 equal pieces. Shape into smooth balls, and place on a greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly. Cover, and let rise for 60 minutes.

Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.

For Hot Dog Buns: Shape each piece into a 6x4 inch rectangle. Starting with the longer side, roll up tightly, and pinch edges and ends to seal. Let rise about 60 minutes. Bake as above.

Number of Servings: 16

  • I made these and they turned out just as they should. Historically, I cannot cook bread. I have not tackled the task again for over 10 years. So, I decided to try these and I succeeded. I think next time I will only make 10. The buns are small. They are fine for a slider kind of burger. - 5/29/11
