  • Step 1/5

    Mix and knead all of the dough ingredients — by hand, mixer, or bread machine — to make a soft, smooth dough.

  • Step 2/5

    Cover the dough, and let it rise for 1 to 2 hours, or until it's nearly doubled in bulk.

  • Step 3/5

    Gently deflate the dough, and divide it into 8 pieces. Shape each piece into a round ball; flatten to about 3" across. Place the buns on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, cover, and let rise for about an hour, until noticeably puffy.

  • Step 4/5

    Brush the buns with about half of the melted butter. Brushing buns with melted butter will give them a soft, light golden crust. Brushing with an egg-white wash (1 egg white beaten with 1/4 cup water) will give them a shinier, darker crust. For seeded buns, brush with the egg wash; it'll make the seeds adhere. And, feel free to add the extra yolk to the dough, reserving the white for the wash.

  • Step 5/5

    Bake the buns in a preheated 375°F oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden. Remove them from the oven, and brush with the remaining melted butter. This will give the buns a satiny, buttery crust.Cool the buns on a rack.
