  • 2 tbsp bread flour
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tsp milk


  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tbsp instant yeast
  • 2 ½ tbsp sugar
  • 2 ½ cups bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter softened

Egg wash

  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tbsp milk


  • ½ tsp poppy seed
  • ½ tsp black sesame seed
  • ½ tsp white sesame seed
  • ½ tsp dehydrated onion
  • ½ tsp dehydrated garlic
  • Optional: pinch of salt


Make the Tangzhong

  • Cook on medium until it becomes thick. Then set it aside until ready for use in step 3.

Prepare the dough in a mixer

  • Mix yeast, lukewarm milk and sugar in a bowl;then let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • Add bread flour, salt, egg, egg yolk and butter to the mixer. Mix and knead for about 1-2 minutes. Then add the tangzhong (from step 1) to the dough in the mixer. Knead for 5 minutes on low (speed 2).
  • Shape the flour into a ball and place it into a lightly greased bowl. Cover with a towel for 1-2 hours or until it doubles in size.*
  • Punch the dough and divide it into 5 equal parts. Shape each dough part into a nice round shape. Let them sit for another hour or until they double in size. *
  • Preheat the oven to 375° degrees.
  • Prepare the buns for the oven:  Brush the egg wash over them. Then sprinkle the “everything” seasoning on top of the buns.
  • Place buns in the oven and cook for 16-18 minutes or until they are golden brown.


Step 4 & 5: I put the dough next to my window so the sunlight form outside can help it rise.
