Homemade Light Brioche Buns {Bun Baking}

Homemade light brioche buns are light and tender on the inside and golden crispy on the outside. Sturdy enough for a burger, yet soft enough for an every day dinner roll.

A key component to any great sandwich is the bun. You need a bun that can hold up the fillings, but doesn’t take away from the experience. (oh, insert the bun jokes here.) I’ve been known to throw away a bun if it’s too overpowering for the burger, or just takes away from the experience. Oh and if its too chewy or dry, its out.
So, needless to say, with all the burgers off the grill lately, there have been some brioche buns baking in this household. We’re not even going near the oven jokes – that just freaks me out.
My first batch of brioche buns looked wonderful, right up until they deflated (a second before being placed in the oven). They were good, but rather short for a burger. Danielle over at Runs with Spatulas mentioned these to me and I knew I had to try them after my other defeat.

Here’s the recipe for the brioche buns. Let me know what you think!

These brioche buns turn out beautifully, although, I may make a change next time. Because the brioche buns deflated the first time, I plan to bake them for 7 minutes before adding the egg wash, and then finish the baking. The suggestion is made by a friend of mine.

And on a serious note: when baking using steam, be very careful when opening the oven door.

Overnight slow cooker oatmeal makes for a hearty, healthy breakfast. On the coldest of days, it'll warm you up from the inside out. Because it's made in a slow cooker, you can wake up to a warm breakfast any day of the week. \\ Recipe on PassTheSushi.com

These look perfect I have got to get over the intimidation factor with breads and just start making some.
