"NO need to buy burger buns and home-made are always better too; these buns are easy to make and you can freeze them for future burger bonanza sessions! You can add different toppings to suit the occasion, for example sesame seeds, poppy seeds, grated cheese or mixed grains.....the choice is yours."

Step by Step Method
Sieve one third of the flour into a mixing bowl, rub in the fresh yeast. Add the sugar and water and mix to a smooth batter.
Cover with a damp cloth and leave to ferment for 15 minutes.
In a separate bowl mix the remaining flour and salt and rub in the butter till you have fine breadcrumbs.
Add the batter mixture and combine to form a soft dough and knead well for 10 minutes. Cover with a damp cloth and leave to prove for an hour.
Knead again for a minute before sectioning the dough into eight equal portions. Roll each piece into a flat round shape.
Place on a greased baking tray, cover with a dry cloth and prove until doubled, about 40-50 minutes.
Brush gently with beaten egg and sprinkle sesame seeds over the top of the buns. Bake in a hot oven. 220C/gas mark 7 for 10 minutes, or until well risen; the buns should sound hollow when tapped underneath. Allow to cool on a rack.
