Serves 6 :
1 sachet easy blend yeast (7g)
120 ml water
300 g bread flour
40 g melted butter
25 g caster sugar
3 g salt
1 egg
1 yolk and 3 tsp milk, beaten
6 pinches of sesame seeds (optional)
1Put the yeast and water into the metal bowl and run the BREAD/BRIOCHE programme. The programme will stop after 1 minute. Open the lid, add the flour, butter, sugar, salt and egg; press Auto to restart the programme. Transfer the dough to a floured salad bowl, cover with a damp cloth; set aside for 30 minutes to rise.
2Place on a floured work surface and gently punch down to push the air out of the dough; divide into 6 balls of equal size. Roll the balls in the palms of the hands until the surface is smooth, to obtain a uniform shape after baking. Place on a lined baking tray and set aside to rise for another 30 minutes.
3 Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 220°C (210°C fan, gas mark 7/8). Brush the buns with the beaten egg yolk and milk, sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown; cool before garnishing.

These were super easy to make and turned out well. Quite sweet for a savoury bun, which meant they went down well with the fam.
