Prepare the buns

Whisk the eggs. Take a very small portion of the egg mixture to brush the buns with later. Put most of the egg mixture into a mixing bowl with the sugar, milk and dry yeast and mix together.
Add flour a little at a time. Also add butter and salt and knead everything for about 30 minutes.
Chill the dough until it is well chilled (at least 2 hours, better overnight).
Knead the dough briefly by hand and then cut out small balls. Place them slightly flattened in the molds and cover with foil. Then let rise for 1 - 2 hours until the dough has risen well. Large buns require about 95 g of dough, medium buns 50 g and small buns 25 g.
Preheat oven to 175°C convection air. Mix the remaining egg with a sip of milk and brush it on the raw dough buns and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake in oven for about 10 minutes (size S)/ 12 minutes (size M)/ 15 minutes (size L).
