Light Brioche Burger Buns

Tonight for dinner my husband requested burgers.  A couple of weeks ago we discovered a burger patty recipe that has become our current favourite.  I wanted to make hamburger buns instead of buying them.  I found this recipe on Smitten Kitchen which I adapted for my breadmaker as I seriously don't have time to stand around kneading dough.  It turned out brilliantly.


  • 3 tablespoons warm milk
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 ½ tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • cup plain flour
  • 2 ½ tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons yeast
  • 1 egg, additional
  • sesame seeds


1. Mix the milk, water, egg and butter together and place in the bowl of the breadmaker.
2. Mix the flours, sugar and salt together and place on top of the liquid. Make a pocket in the top of the flour and place the yeast.
3. Set the breadmaker to the dough cycle and allow the process to complete. Once finished, remove the dough from the machine and place on a lightly floured work surface (the dough will be quite sticky, avoid using too much extra flour). Divide into 8 equal pieces and shape into balls. Place on a baking sheet allowing 2-3 inches between each roll. Cover with plastic wrap that has been lightly sprayed with oil spray, and allow to rise for 30 minutes to one hour.
4. Lightly beat the remaining egg and gently brush the rolls. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. Place the tray into the oven and bake for 15 minutes, rotating the tray half way through cooking.
