Hamburger Bun didn't rise
The recipe I used was very simple; but the dough didn't rise, and the buns are tiny. What did I do wrong? Did I kill the yeast?
|1 cup milk 1/2 cup water 1/4 cup butter 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour||1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast 2 tablespoons white sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 egg|
|1.||In a small saucepan, heat milk, water and butter until very warm, 120 degrees F (50 degrees C).|
|2.||In a large bowl, mix together 1 3/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Mix milk mixture into flour mixture, and then mix in egg. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.|
|3.||Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape into smooth balls, and place on a greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly. Cover, and let rise for 30 to 35 minutes.|
|4.||Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.|
