Tasty Buns Recipe
Homemade hamburger buns will certainly make your next cookout more special! And it is easy to do with this quick yeast dough that takes you about an hour, including rise time. You will want to use this great recipe for dinner rolls, too.
I tried this recipe twice, once with vegetable oil and once more with butter. I'd say the vege oil bun taste blander, whereas the butter bun smells wonderful from far and tastes much better. However, i found an overwhelming foul yeast smell in both buns that sort of makes them unpalatable to some people. If breathe deep into the bun with your nostrils, you'll get the undesirable yeasty smell. I don't know. Textrue is sublime, smells great from far, but close up it smells horrible. And this smell affects the taste. I'm giving it 4 stars because this would be a wonderful bun (with butter replacing vege oil) if I can find a way to remove the foul rotten yeasty smell with a more subtle sweet smelling "normal" yeast smell. I think the bad smell came from yeast action on the milk (fresh milk). I've tried another recipe with milk too and got the same smell. Will powdered milk + water help? Maybe i need to add an egg. Read somewhere that eggs can inhibit undesirable yeast products. I gotta try, need you guys to help!
This was a fantastic recipe! I'd gone to the store to get hotdog buns and came back with burger buns. I didn't feel like going back to the store and had the ingredients for this recipe. I'm glad I tried it! I substituted whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour, and it came out perfect. My boyfriend said the buns were the best part of the whole meal!
Produces lots (16 med-sized) of delicious soft buns easily in a short time (~ 1 hr), which satisfied my in-house critics (5 of them) from ages 39 to 10. I love making bread from scratch, and this is the first yeast bread I've tried, that didn't need kneading, WOW. Apprehensive but did as per recipe, used all milk (as per reviews, thank you. Will try with melted butter next time, instead of oil. Thank you Charlene - excellent recipe. 5/3/04: Tried with butter and 1/2 cup wholemeal flour - still good but firmer, husband ok with it, but I think I prefer it like the original with all milk, as do the children. Updated - 24/11/07: Have made sticky pecan caramel rolls and many variations of dried fruit and nuts and/or chocolate buns with this recipe - always a winner. Fave combos: crystallised ginger, pineapple, apricots, almonds/pecans - all chopped coarsely, + mini choc and white choc chips. Or, dried cranberries, orange rind, almonds or pecans and mini white chocolate chips. One of the best recipe finds here.
I made brat buns with this recipe. Followed the recipe as mentioned, tastes like bisquik the first day, but are awesome brat buns the second day. For a greased pan, I used non-stick spray and flour. Note: the way I made them, they turned out a bit heavy, but that's perfect for brat buns. A bit too heavy for burger/chicken sandwiches.
As of this date(January 2014) I have been making these buns for almost 15 years. My family LOVES this recipe. They prefer hamburger buns from this recipe to any others I have tried, including store bought...these don't fall apart. These buns make great sandwiches, too. I usually quadruple the recipe for my large family because the kids love to snack on them and we like to give them away. I have been making breads and rolls "from scratch' for decades and this is a great, fast, easy, recipe. It is by far the best hamburger bun recipe I have used, but we also love them as dinner rolls. It IS basic so you can adapt the ingredients to your liking... read the reviews and see what others have done. I have shared this recipe with lots of friends and family. Everyone who has tasted them loves them. My one DIL made these as her first venture into yeast bread making and had great success. Another friend made them as her first venture into yeast breads and her MIL was "very impressed." It is pretty much a "no
Very easy to make...but just so so as far as flavor. I made them to use with veggie burgers and I thought they were too dense. The flavor of the veggie burger was lost in this dense bland bun. I even tasted a warm bun out of the oven with a little butter and it was so bland. I don't think I'll make this again.
A very good and simple recipe. I used my Kitchenaid mixer to whip these up in no time. They only require one rising which is also a timesaver.My husband likes sesame seeds, so I put a bunch on top of the buns rising. I didn't need 12 buns, so I rolled some of the dough flat and covered it with a mixture of apples,raisens, cinnamon, ginger, nuts, and a little sugar and rolled it up cinnamon roll style. Yummy! This recipe will definitely stay in my recipe box.
Tasty indeed! These are very easy to bake and versatile. The buns are tender and moist. Absolutely delecious! Everyone in my family loves it.
