Homemade Hamburger Buns



Kināna A couple weeks ago, we enjoyed hamburgers made with homemade buns. They were fabulous! The recipe used was from the Tightwad Gazette for Cuban Bread.

This a quick yeast bread. It takes half the time than normal yeast breads and it is super easy! Ingredients 5-6 cups flour 2 T. dry yeast 2 T. sugar 1 T. salt 2 c. hot tap water 1 T. sesame seeds, oats, or poppy seeds (optional)

  1. Mix 4 cups of the flour with the yeast, sugar, and salt.
  2. Pour in hot water and beat 100 strokes, or 3 minutes with a mixer.
  3. Stir in the remaining flour until the dough is no longer sticky.
  4. Knead 8 minutes.
  5. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with damp towel.
  6. Let rise 15 minutes.
  7. Punch down.
  8. Divide into 2 pieces, shape into loaves and place on baking sheet.
  9. Cut an X 1/2 inch deep on top with sharp knife.
  10. Brush with water and sprinkle with oats.
  11. Place on the middle shelf of a cold oven.
  12. Place a cake pan of hot water on the lowest shelf.
  13. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Bake 40-50 minutes until deep golden brown.

    What would you call a “cold” oven?

    What would be a “cold” oven?

  5. Caroline, a cold oven would mean it has not been preheated. I guess you could call it room temperature! lol Thank you for asking!

  6. Hey Ruth! I don’t know if you remember me. I was on CMOMB a few years back (maybe 3-4). It’s good to stumble across you again.

  7. These hamburger buns look good, this would be something that I don’t think I would be afraid to try 🙂

  8. They look like those mini burgers you get at Red Robin that you pay around $9 for. You get 3 of them with sides. Maybe you could charge and make some $ LOL.
    They look great.
