Tips and Recommendations

  • Make sure the almond milk is warm but not too hot, as it can kill the yeast.
  • If you prefer a sweeter bun, you can increase the amount of sugar in the dough.
  • For a richer flavor, you can add a splash of vanilla extract or almond extract to the dough.
  • These buns are best enjoyed fresh on the day they are made, but you can store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Simply reheat them in the oven or microwave before serving.
  • Feel free to customize the toppings by using different seeds or nuts for added texture.


1. Can I use other types of milk instead of almond milk?

Yes, you can substitute almond milk with any other type of milk, such as cow's milk, soy milk, or oat milk, based on your preference or dietary restrictions.

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the warmed almond milk, active dry yeast, and a pinch of sugar. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until foamy.
  • 2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the activated yeast mixture, remaining sugar, melted butter, and beaten egg.
  • 3. Gradually add the flour and salt to the wet ingredients, stirring until a soft dough forms.
  • 4. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead it for about 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  • 5. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  • 6. Punch down the risen dough and divide it into 12 equal portions.
  • 7. Roll each portion into a smooth ball and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, spaced slightly apart.
  • 8. Cover the shaped buns with a clean kitchen towel and let them rise for another 30 minutes.
  • 9. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
