  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 4 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 .25 ounce package instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg


  1. Heat the milk, water and butter in a small saucepan to 120 F.

  2. In a big bowl, mix 1 3/4 cup flour together with the yeast, sugar and salt. Mix the heated milk mixture into the flour mixture, then mix in the egg. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, making sure to beat well with each 1/2 cup. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead it for about 8 minutes. The dough should be smooth and rubbery.

  3. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape them into balls, and place them on a greased baking sheet, pressing down slightly to flatten them a little. Put a cover over the sheet and let the bread rise for 30 to 35 minutes.

  4. Bake the buns in the oven at 400 F for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
