Milk and Sugar Mini Buns

1/4 cup warm water 110-115 F
2 and 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
3/4 cup warm milk
1 large egg
1/4 cup unsalted butter softened

  • Dissolve yeast in warm water in a small bowl. Let this stand for about 5 minutes or until foamy. In a large mixing bowl, combine milk, butter, egg, sugar and salt. Stir well. Stir in the yeast mixture. Add 3 cups of flour and incorporate it into the mixture. Gradually add little by little of the remaining flour just until the dough gathers together into a ball as you stir. You may not need all of the remaining flour.
  • Turn the dough over on a floured board and knead for about 6-10 minutes, or until the dough is smooth, elastic and can stretch thinly. Place it inside a bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and let it rise for 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours until the size is doubled.
  • After rising, gently deflate the dough and use a sharp knife to divide it into 50-55 portions. The goal is to form 1 and 1/2 inches balls. Shape each portion into a smooth ball and arrange them on a greased 9x13 inch baking pan, close together. Cover the pan loosely with plastic wrap and let the buns rise for 1 hour.
