Hamburger Buns, Soft and Light Brioche Buns, baked in Air Fryer or Oven


I have adapted this recipe from Kitchensanctury to Thermomix.  With the warm weather coming and BBQs a must, this simple recipe will be very handy. Split, spray with a little oil and grill on BBQ. 

Lovely as a Hamburger bun but also filled with Prawns or Crab or Lobster, ( if you can afford it). A little Mayo and lettuce. 

Or grilled and rubbed with raw tomato and topped with Spanish Serrano ham. 


240mls warm water

3 dessertspoons of warm milk

2 teaspoons dry active yeast

2 dessertspoons sugar

360 g strong bread flour, white or Wholemeal 

60 plain flour

2 1/2 dessertspoons butter , or 20 mls of Olive oil.

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 large eggs, ( one for buns and one for brushing on top)

1 dessertspoons of Sesame seeds


PREHEAT OVEN TO 200 degrees (see below for baking in Air Fryer)

Place 1 EGG and all other ingredients, EXCEPT sesame seeds into TMX bowl and knead for  6 minutes.

Place in container, cover with plastic and allow to double. 

Tip onto lightly floured mat and form into 8 balls. ( for smaller, 12 ) stretching dough over top. 

Place on lined baking tray , press down slightly with fingers, and brush with remaining egg, beaten with a little water. Sprinkle with seeds. 

Cover and let double. 

Bake 12 o 15 minutes until dark golden brown.  

Cool on bread rack. 


Will keep well in covered container for 2 days. 

Can add dried fruit and spice for fruit bun. 

If grilling buns on grill. Spray bun 1/2 with a little oil.

For medium sized buns, 9/10 buns from above recipe. 

After 2nd rise

Pre heat AF, 3 minutes / 160 degrees

Brush rolls with egg wash, optional

Spray bottom of buns with oil, ( to prevent sticking) 

Or brush wire of AF with oil between each batch. 

Place 4 buns on wire, not touching. 

Close drawer and set timer 10 minutes.

larger rolls 12 minutes

When transferring rolls to AF, best to dip fingers in flour, first. 

Baked in Bundt tin.
