I found this recipe on Raising Olives and gave it a try. I didn't believe that it could be as good as everyone was saying...boy was I wrong. These are better than that. Seriously. And they are super easy. Really!
I have made these as rolls, buns, large rolls and am going to try them as hot dog buns next week. They are that yummy.
Here is the recipe:
Hamburger Buns in 30 minutes:
3 1/2 cups warm water
1 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar or 1/2 cup honey
6 T. active dry yeast
1 T. salt
3 eggs, beaten
10 1/2 cups white or wheat flour (For company we usually use 4 cups wheat to 6 bread flour then add bread flour as needed, but this is wonderful with all whole wheat.)
Mix first 4 ingredients and let rest for 15 minutes. It should get sponge and get bubbly. Add remaining ingredients. Mix, then knead for 5 minutes. Preheat oven to 425. Roll out to 1/2″ thick. Shape immediately. I use the ring from a wide mouth canning jar for hamburger buns. You could also make child size buns. Let rise for 10 minutes. Bake for 10 minutes or until done.
|These were the first ones we made as rolls. The next set we cut bigger and thicker.|
