Burger Buns in Under 1 Hour

I have always loved baking bread and brioche and all things yeasty. I never had the time because I thought it took FOREVER but not this recipe:



Ingredients for 8 burger buns:


· 2 tablespoons active dry yeast

· 250 ml of warm water (40°C)

· 85 ml of vegetable oil

· 40g of cup sugar

· 1 large egg

· 1 teaspoon salt

· 490g of bread flour ( you can find this in every shop)

· flour for dusting

· Sesame seeds are an option



You will need

· a large bowl

· a small cup big enough for 250

· a baking tray ( non stick)

· a wooden spoon

· a work surface, or a cutting board any thing you can knead on









Preheat your oven to 200 * C

  1. In a large bowl or cup , dissolve yeast in the warm water. Leave it for 5 minutes until the top foams like the top of a beer.

  2. In a separate bowl sift the flour and the egg, salt and oil.

  3. Pour the yeast into the flour, mix with a wooden spoon until it starts to come together

  4. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes.

  5. Cut into 8 pieces shape each into a ball by holding the ball in one hand and with the other pulling the edges and folding them back in like a letter. I will add a video from YouTube at the bottom.

  6. Place 3 inches apart on a baking tray.

  7. Leave them rest for 10 minutes. 

  8. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown.

  9. Remove from the oven, and place on a to wire racks to cool.


Serve your bugger and eat😊
