Garlic Buns


For the bun:

  • Warm water (110 degrees F) ~ ½ cup
  • Sugar ~ 1 tablespoon
  • Active dry yeast ~2¼ teaspoons
  • All-purpose flour ~ 1½ cups
  • Salt ~ ¾ teaspoon
  • Oil ~ 1 tablespoon

For the garlic spread:

  • garlic, chopped finely ~ 3 flakes
  • butter ~ 2 tablespoons
  • cilantro, chopped finely ~ 1 tablespoon


  • In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water. Once the sugar has been evenly distributed throughout the water, stir in the yeast with a whisk. Let it now sit for about 5 to 10 minutes undisturbed. Once the yeast begins to form a creamy foam on the surface of the water, continue with the rest of the steps.
  • Mix salt and oil into the yeast.
  • Mix in the flour and knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth.
  • Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide into 6 portions. Arrange this(with enough gaps) in a baking sheet, and let it rise for about an 30 to 45 mins, until double in size.
  • Make a slit on top and fill in the garlic spread.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake for about 25 mins. until golden brown.


  • If there is no foam in the bowl, the yeast is dead. Please start over with a new packet of yeast.
