  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup water (enough such that the total weight of the milk, egg, and water is 8 ounces.)
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon white sugar

Form each piece into a ball and place it on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using floured fingertips, flatten each piece until it is about ½-inch thick. Cover; allow to rise in a warm place* until doubled in size, about 30 to 35 minutes.

  • Remove from oven; transfer to wire rack to cool.
  • Yield: 6 large or 8 regular-sized hamburger buns.


*To create the perfect environment for rising, turn on electric oven for exactly 1 minute and 45 seconds.
