    Bit time consuming but pretty tasty and always worth a go.

    500 g strong white flour
    50 g sugar
    4 eggs
    4t water
    1t salt
    1 pkg easy bake yeast
    250 g soft butter

    Easy part first…put everything into a stand mixer!

    Turn on to medium and let it rip for about 5 minutes using the beater not the dough hook.

    Now 2 options….put the dough hook in and put on low for about 10 minutes…..or…..pop out onto the counter and work your muscles and knead it for 10 minutes or until it looks smooth.

    Cover with cling film and let stand for 1 hour, then pop in the fridge for 2 hours.

    Pop the dough out of the bowl and cut it into 8 equal bits, then roll them into balls. Flatten and then tuck the edges into the centre and flip over and roll with your fingers like a cage. This will make them evenly round and smooth.

    Pop these onto a baking tray and cover loosely with cling film and put aside to let rise. It will take 2-3 hours as the dough is chilled to begin with.

    Preheat oven to 160c.

    Double brush them with an egg wash and pop them in the oven on the middle rack for about 22 minutes.

    Allow to cool and make some burgers!
