Ingredients

How to make it

  • Proof yeast with sugar in 100 degree water. Add dry milk, salt, shortening, egg and about four cups flour. Knead. If kneading by hand, keep adding flour until dough is pliable. If by mixer, use dough hook and add flour until dough pulls away cleanly from bowl. Knead until a gofl ball size piece can be stretched without breaking. Place in greased bowl and let rise until doubled.
  • Punch down and place on floured cutting board and with hands form into a log. Divide in half and then divide each half into eight equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball with the palm of your hands and flatten into a three inch diameter circle. Place on greased baking sheet, cover lightly and let rise until doubled. Place in 400 degree oven and bake until lightly browned on top and bottom.

    Made these yet again. Made eight large buns. Brushed with milk to get a nice brown crust. Fifteen minutes bake time.
    Cut in 2 cups AP flour. Sent another pic.

    Made these again. Made a dozen buns this time out of the recipe. And again, as usual, turned out well.

    "Proof yeast with sugar in 100 degree water."

    I'm new to baking, so I am assuming that you add the sugar (4tbs) to the water (1 1/2 cps), make sure that the water is 100 degrees F. Let sit until bubbly?

    Since I am new to baking this wasn't very clear. But that's what I am going with. Can't wait to whip these out at the next BBQ.

    To Terigo: The egg and water is called egg wash, but adding this will make the top crusty, which is okay if that is what you want. Most hamburger buns, however, are soft.

    for klaus...
    a step that was omitted was brushing the tops with a mixture of egg and a little water just before baking.
    this will create the beautiful glossy brown color.

    Thanks for this one! No matter how good the hamburger and toppings are, it just dissappoints me when the roll isn't good. Ruins the whole meal.
