For the First Dough

  • Pour all the ingredients into the stand mixer bowl. Knead with the hook at medium speed until the dough is well-formed and elastic.
  • Let rise the dough at 26-28°C (79°F - 82°F) for about 2 hours until it triples its volume.

  • Knead the first dough with the flour and work it very well until forming a good gluten mesh
  • Add the milk powder (optional) and fresh milk several times.
  • When the dough is well combined, add the salt and soft butter.

  • Let proof the buns at 28°C (82°F) for 90 minutes. Before baking, let leave at room temperature for 5-10 minutes to form a thin "skin" on the surface.
  • Polish with yolk and heavy cream (or milk) in equal weight and bake at 180°C (356°F) for about 15 minutes.
  • Once baked, let cool the sandwiches very quickly to preserve their moisture.
