  • In measuring jug, combine the warm water, milk, yeast and sugar.
  • Give it a good whisk and let it rest until the yeast activates and a bubbly foam appears on top (roughly 5 minutes).
  • In a large bowl, add the flour, salt and butter.
  • Rub the butter into the flour (as if making pastry) until breadcrumbs have formed.
  • Stir in the yeast mixture and one of the beaten eggs.
  • Bring the dough together into a ball then knead on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes.
  • Place back into the bowl and leave it to rest in a warm place with cling film over the top of the bowl for roughly 2 hours or until it has doubled in size.
  • In the meantime, line a baking sheet with grease proof paper.
  • When the dough has doubled in size place the dough on to a lightly floured surface and knock the air out of it.
  • Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and shape them into balls, rolling until they are smooth.
  • Place on to the baking sheet leaving a gap (roughly 5cm apart).
  • Cover loosely with cling film and leave in a warm place again to rise for roughly 1.5 hours.
  • When the buns have risen again, beat the remaining egg and gently brush each roll with the egg wash.
  • Sprinkle over sesame seeds.
  • Preheat your oven to gas mark 6 or 200C.
  • Immediately before baking, place an oven dish in the bottom of the oven with an inch of water in the bottom (this will create steam as the buns bake).
  • Place the buns in the centre of the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the buns out on to a wire rack to cool before eating.
