Servings: 8 buns
Calories: 247kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water 105-115 degrees F
  • ¼ cup warm milk 105-115 degrees F, whole milk is best
  • 1 tablespoon instant (rapid-rise) yeast
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature, cut into 4 pieces

For the egg wash:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Combine the warm water, warm milk, yeast and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Stir gently to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Add the salt and egg to the bowl. Use the paddle attachment to combine on low speed.
  • Add both flours and mix on low speed until combined, then mix in the butter pieces.
  • Switch to the dough hook and knead for 8 minutes. The dough will be very soft and slightly sticky.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and knead a few times with your hands to form it into a ball. Cut the dough into 8 pieces. Shape each piece into a round ball and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Loosely cover the dough balls with a clean kitchen towel and let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Combine the egg and 1 tablespoon milk in a small bowl, stirring with a fork. Remove the towel and brush the tops of the buns with the egg wash. Bake hamburger buns in the oven for 13-15 minutes, until tops are golden.

Notes

Brioche buns freeze well. Cool completely, wrap airtight, and freeze for up to 3 months.
