I made an extra batch of bread dough and decided to play around and make some homemade sandwich or hamburger buns. I found out you really use the palm of your hand to get a nice finished round edge on them. So after scaling them out at 3 oz each roll the dough around the counter then cup your hand over it pushing in with your thumb to form a perfect circle. Easy peasy!! and they turn out fantastic!Using a pastry brush to apply a bit of egg warsh to each one then top with seeds. LOL egg warsh is a perfect glue!!I am so so SO lovin babka!! What a smell when that bread is baking! heavenly and the dough is so nice to work with and smooth!! This week I made walnut struesel filled and also a few had some chopped dried apricots also.
This bread rises perfect and looks just delish!!
