Self-made buns

Some years ago a friend showed us a really simple recipe for buns. As there was quite some interest in the recipe at the Tomorrow office, I thought I’ll share it here, too.

The dough can be prepared in the evening and is ready in the morning. We rarely go to a bakery on weekends now. So delicious!


  • 500g Flour
  • ~400ml Water
  • 1 Packet of dry yeast
  • 2TL Salt
  • 2TL Sugar
  • 2EL Oil or melted butter


Knead everything and put in the refrigerator overnight. If too liquid to form, simply add more flour. Feel free to try different types of flour and mix them! Bake in the morning in a preheated oven at 220°C for 15-20 minutes.
