Impress your guests at you next Halloween bash with these black burger buns sandwiched between a mouthwatering burger!


2 teaspoons Dried yeast
2 tablespoons Sugar
200ml Warm water
50ml Warm milk
475g Plain flour
75g Unsalted butter
2 Eggs
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Nigella seeds
1 tablespoon Sesame seeds


In a large mixing bowl, whisk the yeast, sugar, warm water and warm milk together and leave to stand for 5 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, charcoal powder and butter until a bread crumb texture forms.

While continuously mixing, add the eggs and slowly pour in the yeast mixture until thoroughly combined then mix for a further 10 minutes. (Make sure you're scraping down the side of the bowl to combine all the ingredients).

Using clingfilm, cover the bowl and leave to sit. Once the dough has doubled in size, lightly dust a clean work surface with flour and knock back the dough on the work surface to remove air bubbles.

Cut the dough in to 12 equal pieces, roll in to balls, line a baking tray with baking paper and evenly space out each ball of dough on to the tray. Cover the tray with clingfilm and leave until the dough balls have doubled in size.

Preheat the oven to 180C, brush the rolls with some water, scatter nigella and sesame seeds on top and place in the oven for 25 minutes.
