  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups lukewarm water


  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon water
  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons white sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds


  • For the dough you have different options: You can let a bread baking machine or a kitchen machine knead the dough for you or you can mix all the ingredients for the dough and knead it by hand until a soft dough comes together.
  • Let it sit, covered under a clean kitchen towel, until it doubles in size (about 1-2 hours).
  • Preheat the oven to 250 °C or 482 °F.
  • Cut the dough in eight equal pieces and form the burger buns.
  • Mix all the seeds in a shallow plate.
  • Mix the cornstarch with 1/2 teaspoon of water until smooth and brush it onto the buns.
  • Place the buns with the brushed side down in the seeds and put them back on the baking sheet.
  • Carve the surface of the dough lightly with a knife.
  • Then put the burger buns in the oven and bake them for about 15 minutes. They surface should have a bit of color.


Homemade bread is always best on the same day, I usually slice it in half and toast it on the inside whenever I it use the day after.
