Hamburger/Sandwich Buns
Pin It

So after making my wheat bread the other day I started to think about buns. I hate the store bought kind we buy the cheap ones from the day old store. They are small and don’t have a lot of taste. I have never tried them because I just figured they where a lot of work. So I started to google and was pleasantly surprised to find they are no harder really then making bread. There is a little more work in that you heat the liquid but its only one rising time and a short baking time. I also love food blogs because when you find a recipe that has been posted to more then 2 or 3 blogs you know its good!

Prep Time: 15 minutes Rise Time: 40 minutes Bake Time: 10-12 Minutes

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 4-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 package instant yeast (2-1/4 teaspoon)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat the milk, water, honey and butter until butter is melted.  Check temperature.  Depending on the temperature, let cool to 120F.  Carefully beat in egg.

Mix 2 cups of the flour, yeast and salt.  Mix into the milk mixture.  Stir in the rest of the flour, 1/2 cup at a time.  Beat well after each addition.

When the dough pulls together, (it will form a soft ball) turn it out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic.  This should take about 5 minutes.  (I used my Kitchen-aid  mixer)Add a little more flour while mixing with the dough hook, a little at a time until dough is no longer sticky.

Divide dough into 12-16 equal parts.  I used my scale like the blogger said and it worked nicely so I had 12 buns of equal size.  Shape into smooth balls, flatten slightly, and place on a greased cookie sheet.

I know my pan is older then dirt but it works!

Cover loosely with a towel and allow to rise for 40 minutes I put mine on a heating pad. Boil 2 cups of water on the stove then pour into a pan. Place pan of water on bottom rack(lowest setting). Make sure the rack your baking the buns on are on the middle rack.  When buns have almost doubled bake at 400F for 10-12 minutes.

Let cool completely before slicing.

Yields: 12-16 Buns

So I held my breath when I went to cut them but they sliced perfectly!

So the verdict after eating that sandwich for lunch?

I liked it so much I am making homemade sloppy joes for supper so we can all enjoy them! My next thing will be to try making hot dog buns you use the same recipe but shape them different. I am looking forward to trying them soon.
