Homemade Hamburger Buns

Homemade Hamburger Buns

I took this recipe from Allrecipes.com. It make 8 buns. (which is 254 calories per bun). The recipe is really good but I prefer to make 12 buns from it. They end up being the same size but lighter which we like better. The good news is, it also decreases the calories to 171. Every cook does things a little different and I adapted this a little.

Mix together and let set until the yeast starts to bubble

  • 1 T. instant active yeast (or one pkg)
  • 1 c. warm water
  • 3 T. sugar
  • 1/2 cup bread flour

Add using my Kitchen Aide mixer with the paddle beater (I prefer the paddle over dough hooks):

  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 T. melted butter
  • 2 cups bread flour

Beat on high for several minutes. You will see the dough become shiny and elastic.

Gradually add and continue beating until well mixed:

  • 1 more cup bread flour

Dough will be sticky. Empty bowl onto lightly floured surface. Form into smooth, round shape and put in a 3 quart bowl and oil the top with Canola oil. Cover with a cloth and let rise until double in size. (1 to 1-1/2 hours). I divided the dough in half.

Then in half and each quarter into three pieces for a total of 12.

I formed each piece into a ball and flatten onto a greased 11″X15″ baking sheet and flatten.

. Let the buns rise until double in size. (30-45 mins.). Lightly brush the tops with 1 egg lightly beaten with 1 T. milk. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

LBake at 325 degrees for 25 mins or until tops are lightly brown. Let cool before slicing the buns. They freeze well.

Calories: 171 per bun.
