Ingredients: makes 8

Bread (strong) flour
240 g
Cake flour
60 g
Sugar
15 g
Salt
5 g
Dry yeast
6 g
Water
195 ml
Shortening or margarine
20 g

Steps

1. Using all the ingredients, knead into dough either by hand or using a bread machine and allow it to rise.
2. Punch down to remove the trapped air, and divide the dough into 8 portions. Roll the dough into balls making sure that the surface is smooth and tight. Let it rest for 20 minutes. Cover the dough with a damp cloth so the surface does not dry out.
3. Place your palm on the dough, gradually push it down from the top to flatten it into round shapes that are around 1 cm thick. Push down on the dough by moving your palm in a clockwise circular motion. This will help make nice, evenly round shapes.
4. Once the dough resembles the shapes in the photo, allow it to rise again in a warm place (20 minutes). If air bubbles are formed at the edge of the dough, pinch the air out by pressing with your fingers.
5. Once the dough rises up to be fluffy like the ones shown here, bake 15 minutes in a 180℃ oven
6. I put in my child’s favorite dish, tonkatsu with sauce and mayonnaise in the bun.

Story Behind this Recipe

I modified a simple Pullman loaf recipe into a recipe for burger buns that kids love. It goes well with any toppings.
