Hamburger Buns

Hamburger buns are one of those things that intimidate people to make from scratch, I think. The buns in the store all have HFCS and other additives in them.  If you find one that is semi decent they are ridiculously expensive. These buns are easier than making bread.

I love these whole wheat hamburger buns. Been making them for years and I always forget how fast and easy they are for being a bread.  They are so fabulous warm that I can’t stop eating them but they freeze wonderfully as well.  My kids cut them in half and make mini pizzas out of them for lunch too.  Hope you like them as much as my family.

Quick Hamburger Buns

3 1/2 c warm water
6 T yeast
1 c oil or butter ( I use coconut oil but have used butter)
3/4 c sugar or sucanat or 1/2 c. honey
Mix the above ingredients and rest 15 min. It will make lots of bubbles.
Add:
1 T salt
3 eggs
10 1/2 c whole wheat flour
Mix well. Sometimes I let it knead for 2-3 min. but I’m usually in a hurry and they are great if I don’t knead. Roll out thick (1/2″ or  more). Cut into circles and put on cookies sheets that are greased or with parchment paper. Raise 10 min. Bake @ 425 degrees for 8-10 minutes til lightly golden brown. Makes 40 buns.
