  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons milk powder
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup warm water (May need more)
  • For brushing the buns:
  • 1 beaten egg
  • To sprinkle on top of buns:
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


    1. In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients. Gradually add the warm water to previous mixture and knead.
    2. In the beginning the dough will be sticky, but as you keep kneading, you'll notice that the dough is getting firmer and won't stick.
    3. Knead for 5 to 7 minutes, then cover and let it rise in warm place for an hour or until double in size.
    4. Punch the dough and knead it for 1 minute.
    5. Lightly dust your baking sheet with flour.
    6. Form 4 equal balls from the dough and place on baking sheet, cover with wet cloth and let rise again for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 374F/190C.
    7. After the 30 minutes, brush the buns with egg and sprinkle sesame seeds. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
