I am a fan of yours, your recipies are always stunningly prefect!!
In this last one I have a doubt….
If you skip the first rise, won’t the buns taste of yeast?
Thank you for your answer and many many greetings from Italy!!
Can I cancel the egg in the ingredients?
Thank you ????
I made these buns after watching your video and they turned out great. But, tbh, I didn’t exactly follow your formula or procedure. Since we don’t use milk per se I keep powdered skim milk on hand for recipes that require milk. So following the directions for the powdered milk I used it and adjusted the liquid accordingly. Also, being on the lazy side, I used my stand mixer to knead the dough. In the past I have had yeast fail out of a brand new jar so I also proof the yeast rather than add it directly to the dry ingredients. Finally I divided the dough into 6 pieces rather than 8 to accommodate our 5 oz hamburger patties. The buns went over really well with my sweetheart. She mentioned numerous times after dinner how much she liked them. Considering how easy they were to make it’s hard to understand why people even buy commercial bread products. Before attempting your formula I had watched other authors’ videos but yours impressed me the most so I’m grateful to you for sharing it with us. Even tho’ I am an experienced baker I still look for ways to add to my repertoire and again, thanks.
John. I am so glad you tried these buns. My family loves them too. Being such an easy recipe even my 12 years old daughters is making them sometimes too.
Mice recipe! I will try it this weekend. Quick question – do they freeze well?
