I always buy 2 or 3 packs of buns because my kids love to make their homemade hamburger and hotdog sandwiches. This gives me an idea to just make our buns. Thankfully, I stumbled upon this fast and easy recipe on how to make delicious buns. And it took me only 30 minutes to make them and boy that was fast!
1 cup plus 3 tablespoons warm water 110 degrees
1/3 cup of canola oil
1/4 cup of sugar
2 full tablespoons active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg beaten
3 1/3 cups bread flour
1 pat of real butter
How to make Hotdog or Hamburger Buns
Step 1: Line parchment paper in a cookie sheet. Prepare all the ingredients. Make sure to use the exact measurements. You have to use the original ingredients, don’t substitute because we must follow exactly what the recipe says.
Step 2: Warm a large mixing bowl by rinsing it with hot water. In the same mixing bowl, add warm water, oil, sugar, and yeast. Sit for 15 minutes (use a timer).
Step 3: Measure the flour. Add one teaspoon of salt and mix well.
Step 4: When the timer alarms when the 15 minutes is up. You can now add the beaten egg into the yeast mixture, then the bread flour a little at a time. Whisking it until it starts to get thick. This time, using a wooden spoon, add the rest of the flour (as much as you need) to have a nice, tender dough that you can roll.
Step 5: Knead the dough onto a light flour board. Roll the dough to about 3/4 inch thick. Cut it using a 4-inch clean can or glass. Place cut doughs on the prepared parchment paper. To make hotdog buns, you have to turn sides down and under the dough to overlap. For hamburger buns, you’ll have to use the entire circle. Place both in the parchment paper.
Step 6: To have that store-bought buns look, don’t forget to brush the top of the buns with melted butter.
Step 7: Let the buns rise for 10 minutes. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes at 425 degrees.
Step 8: Freeze the buns for later use.
