So, how to make Buttery Brioche Hamburger Buns?

Steps to make Buttery Brioche Hamburger Buns


Make the starter


Place the yeast and milk in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Mix well and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Add the flour and sugar mix using the paddle attachment until you have a smooth batter.


Allow to stand


Remove the beater and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Leave the starter rest for about 30 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface of the dough.


Make the dough


Attach the dough hook to your mixer and add the flour, salt and eggs. Once the dough forms, knead it with the dough hook for about 4 minutes. Then add the butter, gradually (2 tablespoons at a time). Continue kneading with the dough hook, scraping the bowl occasionally for about 5 minutes until the dough looks smooth and shiny.


Prove the dough


Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Leave to rise. After about 1 ½ hours, knock the dough back. Cover again and leave to rise for another 45 minutes.


Heat the oven and line a baking sheet


Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Shape dough into buns


Divide the dough into 12 equal balls. Shape them into buns by pressing the balls down to make thick disks. Arrange the buns on the baking sheet. Cover with a light towel and leave them in a warm place for about 20 minutes.


Brush with egg wash


Make the egg wash by whisking one large egg with one tablespoon of water. Brush each bun with the egg wash. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.




Bake the buns in the oven for 7 minutes at 400°F. Reduce the heat to 350°F and bake for 10 to 12 more minutes until golden brown.



Serve warm with your favorite burger and toppings.
