• 1 packet yeast
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp nonfat milk powder
  • 2 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 tsp salt

Proof yeast in warm milk and sugar.

Add flour, milk powder, and salt to liquid and mix on low speed until all flour is incorporated. Add softened butter and continue mixing for 7 or 8 minutes. Dough will be soft and not pull away from bottom of bowl, but it shouldn’t be overly sticky.

Form into a ball and place in an oiled bowl. Cover, and allow to rise until doubled.

Punch down dough and form into 4 to 6 balls. Place on a floured sheet pan and flatten. Cover with a towel and allow to rise, again, until doubled.

Brush with egg mixed with a bit of water and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.

Place in a preheated 375°F/190°C oven for about 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and cover pan with a clean dishtowel to steam buns as they cool to help soften.
