12 Months of Bread - 4/12

I know when I set out on this tasty 12 months of bread project I didn't set myself the rule of making one a month. I never planned to do it that way. But... when the 29th snuck around and I hadn't done an April loaf I panicked! The next day, I made these amazing sesame seed buns. So, technically, this is Aprils bread, okay?

I have tried to make burger type buns before, but they turned out brittle and hard (it actually hurt to eat them!). This time I followed this Basic White Roll recipe. I was apprehensive of using soy butter and soy milk as alternatives, I always assume it'll react weirdly! But I don't think this effected the outcome at all. I used soy milk to glaze too, and added sesame seeds gently pressed into the dough. I only cut mine into 4 too.

Lessons Learnt: If I did these again I'd bake them at a lower temperate. The tops were a little brown and the centre just just just cooked. Doh. Kneading dough is so relaxing. Also, greaseproof paper sucks.

Verdict: Pretty tasty! I was super happy that they were nice and soft inside. You could actually taste the sesame too! That was a huge plus for me because I looovvvee sesame seeds. They went perfectly with the kidney bean, carrot and cumin burgers Dixon made us.



  1. I've always wanted to make my own burger buns! perhaps i'll try this— you've inspired me!

    1. Making your own bread is so fun!! These were great, definitely give it a go!
