How to lighten up buns?

DuffyH | Jul 5, 2013 07:48 PM

I'm looking for a recipe for light and fluffy burger or hot dog buns. I've made the following twice now. It makes pretty good rolls, but they're a bit too hearty for a proper bun, more like a hoagie roll. Can you help?

1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (I used about 3/4-1 cup less than specified)
1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 egg

With warm liquids, an 8 minute knead and a 1.5 hour rise doubles the dough (maybe a bit more than double). After shaping, they rise another 20-30 minutes, then bake at 400ºF for 12 minutes.
