Prep Time 3 hours
Cook Time 20 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 3 hours 30 minutes


  • 500 g of flour
  • 150 ml of warm water
  • 125 ml milk
  • 25g sugar
  • 20g butter
  • 10 g of salt
  • 2 teaspoons dry yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 1 yema
  • Sesame seeds


    1. Sift the flour, salt, sugar, yeast, lightly beaten egg, and incorporate in a large mixing bowl. Pour in the water and milk and mix with a wooden spoon until a slightly sticky dough forms.
    2. Transfer to a clean and floured surface, mix until smooth, add the room temperature butter in cubes, and knead with your hands for about 10 minutes until you have a smooth and elastic dough that is adherent but not sticky, form a ball, and rest covered in a bowl for 90 to 120 minutes, until doubled in size.
    3. Divide the dough into 8 pieces of approximately 120 grams each, rest for 5 minutes, and roll the buns to give them a round and smooth appearance, distribute them on a baking tray at least 5 centimeters apart, squash them a little with the palm of your hand, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and proof for 60 minutes, or until doubled in size.
    4. Brush the loaves with the beaten egg yolk mixed with a little water and sprinkle with sesame seeds to taste. Place the tray in a preheated oven at 200 ° C (392 ° F) and bake for about 15 minutes (ideally the first 5 minutes in steam) until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack in a warm place to avoid cracking.
