Soft Hamburger Buns
Yield: 8
A delicious burger bun that anyone can make.
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 4½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour (or just over 4 cups whole wheat flour)
  • 2½ tsp. yeast
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1½ tsp. salt
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  1. Warm the milk, water, and butter in the microwave to the temp. of a warm bath (NOT hot). Stir until butter melts completely.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix in the milk mixture, then add the egg. Dough should be only slightly sticky. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic (8-10 minutes).
  3. Divide the dough into 12 balls, and place them on a large, greased baking sheet. Lightly press down on the top of each ball of dough, so that the top is more flat than rounded. They will puff up more during rising and baking. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
  4. Cover with a dishtowel, and let rise 30-40 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  5. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until golden brown on top. Serve as desired, and store for 3-5 days on the counter, or 4-6 months in the freezer.
