Instructions

  1. Warm milk, sugar, and yeast should all be combined in a sizable mixing dish. Wait until the mixture foams up, which should take 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the softened butter, eggs, and salt to the mixture and mix well.
  3. Gradually add in the flour, 1 cup at a time, until a soft and sticky dough forms.
  4. On a floured surface, spread the dough out and knead it for 5 to 10 minutes, or until it is elastic and smooth.
  5. The dough should be placed in a greased bowl, covered with a clean cloth, and allowed to rise for about one to two hours, or until it has doubled in size, in a warm, draught-free area.
  6. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  7. The dough should be punched down and divided into 12 equal pieces. Each piece should be rolled into a ball before being placed on a parchment-lined baking pan.
  8. For an egg wash, combine the egg yolk and water and beat until smooth. Egg wash should be applied to the buns' tops.
  9. Give the buns another 15 to 20 minutes to rise.
  10. The buns should be baked for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  11. The buns should be taken out of the oven and let to cool on a wire rack.
