Who has time? With two toddlers, I am always looking out for recipes that cut corners on the preparation time, without affecting much of the taste. Bread making is usually time-consuming as the dough need time to develop and rise. Fortunately, I have found a recipe that’s fast and simple enough to make.
3 1/2 cup plain flour
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water
2 tsp fast dry yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
Sesame seed for garnish
- Mix all the bread ingredient together and mix well.
- On a floured surface, knead the dough till it is smooth and elastic. It took me around 4 minutes on my stand mixer. Do not let it rise, cut the dough immediately into 12 pieces and shape into rounds of doughs and place on the greased baking tray. ( I use baking sheet)
- Cover and let rise for 15 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 175 degree. Brush dough with egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds on the dough.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and cool on rack.
Note: you can choose out to use egg wash, but the sesame might not stick as well to the bun.
Instead of using egg wash, you can use milk, or water, or melted butter. The result will not be as shiny as egg wash.
