 Fantastic recipe of homemade Buns.

The recipe was found couple years ago in one of the cooking forums. Since then, it is the only favorite buns recipe in my family. If you have a bread making machine, it's fast and easy solution for a dinner. 
You can substitute 1 cup of all-purpse flour with whole-wheat. It works just fine.

Add the ingredients in a order.

 1 cup water
 2 eggs
 1/3 cup oil + 2 tbsp oil
 1/4 cup sugar
 1 tsp salt
  4 cups flour
  1 and 1/2 tsp machine yeast
Select the dough setting, when cycle is complete, I like to leave the dough in the machine for another 30 minutes, just to give it an extra rise.

Remove the dough from machine and divide it in 3 equal portions on the floured surface. Divide each portion into 6 equal balls. My oldest son like big buns and little one loves small buns, that's why I never manage to make equal balls. You have to use your eye-measurement for that. 

Turn the balls in your floured hands into a right shaped balls and flatten them a little.

I press them a little on a baking sheet. Baking sheet is covered with parchment paper. I cover the sheet with clean kitchen towel and let rise for 30 minutes or until double in volume.

Time to turn your oven on. We will need F350.

I beat  1 egg for the egg-wash and brush it on buns.

Sprinkle sesame seeds and bake at F 350 for 10-12 minutes until lightly brown.
