Hot Dog Buns

(ever so slightly adapted from King Arthur's recipe)

1 tbsp sugar

2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast (1 packet or 1/4 ounce)

1/4 cup warm water (105-110F)

1 cup warm milk (105-110F)

2 tsp vegetable oil

2 tsp salt

3-3 1/2 cups ap flour

1 egg white (for egg wash)


In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine sugar, yeast and warm water. Stir to dissolve and let set until bubbly, about 5 minutes. Add in milk, vegetable oil and salt. With the mixer on a low speed with the dough hook attached, gradually add the flour. Once 3 cups have been incorporated, add the remaining flour a tablespoon at a time until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 2-4 minutes, until smooth and supple. The dough should be soft, but not sticky. Place in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise until doubled, 1-1 1/2 hours.


Shaping the dough:

Gently remove the dough from its bowl onto a floured surface. Flatten it slightly into a large rectangular log. Divide dough into thirds and divide each third into three equal pieces. Cover unworked dough with a clean dishtowel while shaping.

Gently flatten dough into a long rectangle. Fold left and right sides to meet in the center. Fold the top and bottom sides towards the center. Keep pinching the edges together, pulling the dough into a tight roll shape (Not that I'm advocating smoking - because I'm not and I don't - but it is similar to hand-rolling a cigarette. Except bigger. And dough). Repeat until you have 9 rolls.

Place hot dog buns on a parchment-lined baking sheet and cover with a dishtowel. Let them rise for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400F.

Brush buns with egg white and bake for 20 minutes.

Remove to a rack to cool before slicing.

Makes 9 buns. I added 2 Tablespoons of dough enhancer! And used whey instead of milk!!!!!! Miki
