Homemade Hamburger Buns
I used my new Bread Machine for the first time today. I made hamburger buns from the following recipe. http://www.breadmachinediva.com/2010/07/hamburger-buns-in-the-bread-machine-updated/
They were wonderful! They were super easy to make just using the dough cycle. I did add a little butter to the tops of them when they came out of the oven. You know us southern girls we love our butter!
Here is the recipe. I used quick rise yeast and the quick dough cycle on my bread machine.
1 – 1/2 Cups water
1 – 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 – 3/4 Cups bread flour
1 – 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
1 – 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 – 1/2 teaspoons active bread yeast
Use the dough setting of your Zojirushi Bread Machine. When the dough is done put it on a lightly floured board and divide into three equal sections. The goal is to get 9 hamburger buns of appropriate size and shape. When you’ve got the buns the right size and shape put them on a greased cookie sheet. Remember not to put them too close together as they’ll get larger as they cook.
Cover the buns with a clean, light-weight kitchen towel and let the buns rise for half an hour. Then remove the towel and put the buns in a 400 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
Move the cooked buns to a rack to cool.
