Burger Buns


I have been planning to make burgers from scratch forever now. Finally I achieved this grand ambition last month when we had the Burger theme for the Blogging Marathon. Smart girl that I am, I immediately saved up the burger bun recipe for Bake-a-thon. So here it is.


Recipe from here.

Makes 4 buns


Lukewarm water                          1/4 – 1/2 cup

Butter, room temp                       1 tbsp

Egg, small                                       1

All purpose flour                          1  3/4 cup

Sugar                                                2 tbsp

Salt                                                    3/4 tsp

Instant yeast                                  1 1/2 tsp

Melted butter                                 2 tbsp


  • Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl to form a dough
  • Set aside in a greased bowl for an hour or till the dough doubles in bulk
  • Punch down the dough and divide it into 4 parts
  • Roll each part into a round bun and place them on a greased baking tray
  • Set aside for an hour or till the buns appear puffy
  • Preheat the oven to 190 C
  • Brush the buns with half of the melted butter
  • Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes till the top of the buns are golden brown
  • Remove from the oven and brush with the balance melted butter
  • Cool the buns on a wire rack
  • Enjoy with a patty of your choice!
