Okay so I thought it was about time I posted the recipe I used the other day when I made the brioche burger buns with my daughter, it's certainly BBQ weather at the moment and a homemade burger with some homemade buns goes down pretty well in the sunshine!
This makes 48 buns so adjust for how many you want!
Thanks to Carl for this recipe.
It's made in two stages:
Stage one - Flying sponge
Water - 750g
Yeast - 38g
Flour - 500g
Mix this first bit up about an hour before you want to get started, this gets the yeast working. Leave it covered somewhere warm.
Stage two - Main Dough
Flour - 2125g
Salt - 50g
Sugar - 338g
Milk - 375g
Egg - 250g
Water - 125g
Stage Three -
Butter - 375g (diced up)
Add all the dry ingredients and mix together in a large bowl (very large bowl if you're doing the whole recipe above), then add in the flying sponge and the other wet ingredients and mix until it starts to pull together but bit form a dough.
At this stage add in the butter then kneed until a clear dough is formed (it can take some work if you're doing the whole lot!)
Then leave it to rest for 45 minutes.
After the rest chop the dough into 90g (ish) bits and roll into round balls. Lay them out on a baking tray leaving a good space between them.

|Into the freezer|
|Ready for the next prooving then into the oven!|
|Finished buns! Worth the effort!|
|Fill it up as much as you can!|
Let me know what you think if you try it!
