Tom & Jerry is on, I have about 20.4 minutes to explain these!!!
I made the Allrecipes one I usually make
Burger or Hot Dog Buns - Allrecipes
but i used extpat's idea of being anal and weighing out each piece so all the dough balls were the same. 4 oz each. I got 9 1/2 buns, the 1/2 ended up being my lunch.
I rolled them out to 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches instead of the 4x6 in the recipe.
I guess I better start at the beginning tho.
I like to proof my yeast 1st, cuz ya never know.
put the water, milk, butter, sugar and salt all on lo on the stove just til butter melts. dont go over 110-115 degrees or you'll kill the yeast.
I use the dough hook on my KA... but I stir flour in til my 'lil arms wont anymore.... about 1 minute.. (ya I'm a wimp) I think I stirred in about 3 cups worth by hand, then hooked it, after I had the whole 4 1/2 cups in I knead it on the counter, cuz I dont trust the hook. It was still pretty sticky. I added about another 1/2 cup flour.
Then I put it all in an oiled bowl, covered and let it grow to double its size. punched down, split into 4 oz pieces, made them into rectangels, rolled those into logs.
Let rise again, covered, about 40 min.
I baked at 400, about 20 min? I forgot to set the timer and I had to change a diaper..... (yes I washed my hands)
I think they are a little too heavy yet, but they are the best I've found, so until I find another, these are okey dokey!
Step by step enough?
you should hear me explain things in person....
