It’s funny how we take a good bread roll for granted; I know I did. It took me three months to find the right baker to make Beatbox Kitchen’s burger buns, and then another six months to get the bread right. Even now, if the weather is dramatically different from one day to the next – for example super freezing after being super hot – I will call the baker to check that he has taken it into consideration … of course, he always has! I think this is what I love most about bread – it’s a living thing that needs time and respect. Here is my favourite base bread recipe.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 1/2 teaspoons dried yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
600g plain flour
2 teaspoons salt
250ml full-cream milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Method

  1. Using an electric mixer or food processor, combine the yeast, sugar and 75 ml warm water until the yeast has dissolved. Let stand for about 15–20 minutes, or until the mixture starts to foam.
  2. Add the flour, salt, milk, vegetable oil and 190 ml warm water to the yeast mixture and mix with a dough hook attachment for 8–9 minutes, or until the dough is smooth. Transfer to a lightly oiled bowl, cover and set aside in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  4. Knock back the dough and knead it by hand for about 2–3 minutes, or until the dough is smooth and elastic. Divide the dough into 8 equal-sized portions and shape each into a round. Arrange the portions on the baking tray, leaving at least 5–6 cm between them. Cover and set aside to rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until doubled again in size. Bake the buns in the oven for 25–30 minutes, or until they sound hollow when tapped on the base. To help form a nice crust, use a spray bottle to lightly spray some water into the oven every 3–4 minutes while the bread is baking.
