We made them 1. I highly recommend doing these next time you have an event. I recently did an interview with a chef for my site and he used the Barefoot Cantessa brioche bun recipe for his to die for pulled pork sandwiches… but I just had a baby, I had to turn to the store. However, I did do the 9 hour smoked shoulder and felt victorious! This is similar to a recipe I have for my bread machine that turns out fine buns. Although I should probably invest in the bread flour — been too lazy to buy it. Will try — thanks for sharing! I love your blog. Keep up the good work!
Light brioche burger buns…. Wow those look great! Your blog is amazing. Your photos are just top notch, and such a great variety of recipes! You are an inspiration to other food bloggers like me. Made them yesterday with Vietnamese pork burgers and they came out beautifully. Thanks for this recipe — it goes in the permanent file! Will try some whole wheat flour next time — should I sub some for the AP flour or for some of the bread flour? Thank you, thank you!! Next step is to make buns for each of them.
Thanks for the recipe! I was just saying the other day how much I would love to make the perfect hamburger bun…then I found your blog. Can you substitute instant yeast here? I made these today, and they turned out fantastic. I had made my favorite curried chicken salad this morning and it was divine served on these! You should defintely do more self kneading bread recipies! Thank you so much for the recipe! We absolutely loved them and they were super easy to make!! The next morning my 4 yr old son asked for one for breakfast! I made these buns a couple nights ago — absolutely fantastic.
They were delicious with burgers and on their own. Made these this afternoon and they are wonderful. My son ate a whole one plain. Honey is cleaning the kitchen as a thank you. I also cheated and put it in my bread machine on dough cycle while I did other things. And yes it took under an hour for the buns to rise-beautifully. Just baked my second batch of these fabulous buns. After reading about the stickiness, I did mine in the bread machine through the first rise. I have the full size Zojirushi breadmaker. Put salt and flours in with softened butter and crumbed by hand.
Then the yeast mixture. Kneaded for 9 minutes in the machine, then let it rise. No stick, no mess. Then I made into rolls, let rise again and baked. Thanks for passing this recipe along. I tried the self-rising, it worked well for sammies, but fell apart under the turkey burger, maybe that will be where the gluten from the bread flour comes in.
Next time… They are delicious though, thanks for sharing, I never thought that it would be possible for me to make bread! Yeast and self-rising flour are wildly different ingredients. Yeast is a living plant microorganism; self-rising flour has a chemical leavener, baking powder, in it which is a quick-rise element for cakes and cookies. It is not the right flour to make bread. Stumbled upon your website and have to say how excited I am to find another Foodie who really puts a lot of time and effort into cooking and discovering the best recipe and truly having fun doing it.
Tried your Brioche buns out and had to tell you what a huge hit they were in my family — you made me look good. Thank you so much for the inspiration. I love that I made hamburger buns! I replaced the half cup of AP flour with whole wheat, might go for a whole cup next time.
Also, they are big…My next batch I will shape into 12 rolls instead of 8. The dough was wet and a bit tricky to work with. I kneaded them in the KA. Mine rose fast too — an hour for the first rise, and less than that for the second. I made these buns for the fourth of July and forgot to comment here!! They were so good! This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks so much Deb. I made these today, on a crazy baking tear at 8 a. Suffice to say, a burger on this bun will be the best damn American hamburger ever.
OK Deb, I made these last night- went real easy on any extra flour and had great rising deliciousdough BUT they were like pancakes expanding out not up! What did I do wrong? I made them again, and made 10 not 8, it was just the right amount for us! I would like to try these for another party but will be short on time. I just pulled out my batch of these buns, and they are fantastic!
Thanks Deb for another great recipe: These are truly amazing. My hubby actually said these will take the place of his homemade cinnamon roll requests. My KIDS even love them. To shape I sprinkle a small handfull of flour over the top and grab balls out of the dough, rolling in theh flour. We use them for pulled pork sandwiches, hamburgers, turkey sandwiches, breakfast sandwiches…you name it. Try them toasted with butter and honey mmm: I made these this weekend. And oooh, Smitten Kitchen, I am so grateful for you.
But I suffered from a stupidhood: I turned the oven on to degrees to get it warm so the buns would rise the second time… and then I forgot to turn it off. I LOVE cooking, and this site has made me love it even more. I love being able to make breads that I would other wise have to buy; its the control really but also it just tastes better. Your description- the picking up and slapping it down- really helped. Also your pie crust directions- pie crust has been my nemesis for years- and I feel like I can bake- but no longer! Thanks so much for this recipe!
Of course I bought a back-up bag of Sara Lee buns in case I screwed it up! Your recipe is great, especially the emphasis on leaving the dough a little tacky. They elevated the already great burgers to a new level. This is a definitely a new standard recipe for me. Thanks again for this excellent recipe.
I have literally drooled over these since you posted and finally got around to making them this week. I sprinkled Eden Shake all over them two kinds of sesame seed, nori chunks, and sea salt. Made a luxury vehicle for the best sandwich fillings I could possibly muster. So very sticky that I figured out what I did wrong- bummer.
See what happens when you try to bake with two little peanuts racing around under your feet! They are on their final rise, cross your fingers for me. Stupid question, but where does one place the pan of water on the oven floor — on top of the element? My oven has heating coils on the bottom, held up by little legs to elevate it from the floor.
Do I put the pan underneat the legs? Introducing steam in the first few minutes of baking bread is a classic technique to help bread crust formation. You can also skip the step, but as I said, it does make for nicer bread. Made these last night for burgers and they are fantastic! Thanks Deb for this great recipe! Do I freeze the dough, thaw, then bake as usual or do I bake as usual, thaw, and then warm in the oven before serving?
I made these over the weekend, and posted about them on my site, A Bread A Day [dot] com. Really, really fantastic bread. Breanne — You can freeze a bread dough at any point in the process. You simply need to let it fully defrost and get back to room temperature and pick up the recipe where you left off.
Not enough moisture, very dry dough. OK, but not the raving results or other commenters. Made this using only all purpose flour, and I thought they turned out great!!! Next try I used half, or was it a third? I have found that rising them in the refrigerator overnight up to 24 hours yields the best, easiest results—I can mix the dough up the night before and the next day cook them up and look like a star.
The recipe is also great for hot dog buns, by the way. These were exactly what i have been searching for, and was about to give up. This is the best bun recipe I have ever made. All others pale in comparison. These were nice and soft, not dense. I made 6 instead of eight and they were perfect for big burgers. I have been tuning in here for a while and have tried several other recipes.
I havent been dissapointed yet. Keep up the good work: Just tried this recipe for buns for my beer brats, they turned out perfect despite me not having any parchment paper, only having all-purpose flour, and not having a dough scraper. I tried these today to have with some turkey burgers and they were fantastic like everything else I have made of yours! I should be posting the buns on Saturday so feel free to stop by. But this time…everything worked out perfect.
Thanks for the recipe. Mine came out perfect, the dough was so wet they seemed to spread outwards rather than rise upwards. They are the perfect golden and rustic looking buns ever. Toasted they were crisp, yet fluffy. But they were a bit off in taste — I found them FAR too sweet. Such a shame — other than being too sweet, they were perfect! It is not like a cookie or cake, where it could adversely affect the structure. I make all breads with my stand mixer. It allows me to keep the dough wetter than I would like if it was sticking all over my fingers and counter.
And this is working well for me for now. I have been telling all my friends, if you have a stand mixer there is no need to be scared of yeast. Baking a good cake seems just as challenging…and then you need to decorate it. I made these today, and they were awesome! One problem I did have is they stuck to the parchment paper after I baked them. I used honey instead of sugar because we were out. Could that be the problem? They tasted great though!
It is my nemesis, as it is parchment-like but without the high-heat nonstick properties of real parchment paper. Can you tell it has burned me before? I bet it IS my parchment paper! I thought it would work the same, but apparently I was wrong. Respectfully, This recipe is simply a common white bread recipe, nothing special about the recipe. The word Brioche in the title is a misnomer. Brioche is characterized by a high butter content, the brioche lite recipes containing 20 percent butter, with the rich brioches going up to percent at the highest.
This recipe contains 7. Most enriched white bread recipes call for the same amount of butter. No one ever considered them to be a brioche. Lightness and soft texture texture in a hamburger bun is more about technique, proofing method and the brand of flour being used. The best bun I ever ate was made with common grocery store RobinHood bleached and bromated AP flour, the worst was made with King Arthur unbleached unbromated bread flour. See I know if you have posted a recipe then it is trustworthy. I am still learning to cook, and even more learning to bake. But I am making pulled pork sandwiches for the Lost Premiere and thought how cool would it be if I could successfully make the buns to go with it.
No butter, no nothing. So even if it is a common white bread recipe with nothing special about it… Its fantastic. My only problem tonight will be convincing people to eat the pulled pork with the bread! I planned on making burgers today and decided to skip the store bought buns and make them myself. I remembered seeing this recipe and decided to try it out. The buns came out light and beautiful.
I cannot wait for my delicious burger later!

Blogs like yours make cooking for people like me so much easier. These little buns will be perfect for the trio of pork sliders that I will be making for a school project. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Made these tonight in my breadmaker on the dough cycle.
Then baked on Silpat covered baking sheet. The result was an absolutely wonderful bun. We make all our bread at home, as well as our pizza dough.. I made these today for our Easter Grill Out. And yes very sticky, thank goodness for Kitchenaid with dough hook…. The problem is I seem to be adding too much flour. How many ounces of flour do you put in this recipe? If I put in less than 36 oz. Thank you for your reply. Keep in mind what I said in Step 2, which is that this is a sticky dough but the less flour you add, the more tender and soft the rolls will be.
Advice on doubling a batch, please? Should I make two separate batches? Or, knead it all, do the first rise in one bowl from my KA , then refrigerate half while I shape and rise the first half? Or none of these things? Your site was the first I used when I got into baking. Over a year later, and I was scouring the web for hamburger bun recipes and came across smittenkitchen. Tried them out and they were perfect!
The double batch perfectly filled the KA bowl but I have the biggest version on the first rise. Made 20, perfectly-sized buns. My son has a severe egg allergy so I omitted the eggs and used honey in lieu of egg wash to get the sesame seeds to stick. I tried to make these the other day. This is my first time trying to make buns. The color and flavor were great. Unfortunately, they came out very flat. They were puffy and nicely shaped after the second rising, but they fell down when i brushed them with the egg before putting them in the oven.
The dough was super sticky as you mentioned but I still refrained from adding more flour while kneading and slapping it around. These are the perfect buns for the 3-pigs sandwich i am working on, is there any advice you can help me with please? Thank you for the great recipe and your help!!! These turned out beautifully, but when I made them, they spread out, not up, on the second rise. Now, I have buns that are about an inch high but 4 inches in diameter! Do you think I needed to add a touch more flour?
I did use bread machine yeast, but my research showed that active dry yeast was pretty much the same as bread machine yeast. So you think that is the problem? Jane — Bread machine yeast is the same as instant yeast, not active dry so that could have caused it. This blog is amazing.
What is the best way to store these buns overnight? I actually did a third proving while I had dinner then baked them. I put them in ziploc bags overnight and they were fine today. I used bread flour and some italian pizza flour, the bread worked perfectly with our burgers and looked picture perfect. Is that what you would recommend for preparing these ahead? First rise in the fridge, then bring it to room temperature in the morning and go for the second rise?
Or does doing the second rise in the fridge make more sense? Could someone translate it to spanish for me, please. Quick and no stick. Once I noticed the recipe called for cutting in softened butter, I ended up doing this by hand. I did use the dough hook for the kneading part. I had to run it on 2 for about minutes. Made two batches, and I had to add a fair amount of extra flour to the second. Either way, I ended up with two beautiful batches of buns!
Everyone agreed that cutting the dough one more time would turn out some fantastic dinner rolls. I made these again this summer, and put them outside to rise and that worked perfectly! No one could believe I had made them. These were delicious and mostly a cinch. I definitely had a mess on my counter top as I did want to keep these tacky lots of yeast doughs end up tastier that way. I topped some of mine with dried minced garlic and black sesame seeds.
It is a bit less work, and one less scrubbing of the counter after the first kneading. Put the flour, salt, and butter in the food processor. Process to incorporate the butter. With the motor running, pour the liquids through the tube and process for about a minute until the machine starts to labor. Put melted butter into a bowl rather than buttering the bowl. Pour dough out of food processor directly into the bowl. Turn the dough to tuck the ends under and make a nice round ball for the dough to rise.
I floured my hands before punching the dough down, but the mixture was not horribly sticky after I let it rise. I just kneaded each of the buns separately so they did not need much flour. I had one fresh out of the oven last night, and could not resist one for breakfast this morning, so now I have to make a second batch for dinner tonight.
I am going to try freezing four of the formed rolls and will report back on how well it worked if I remember. I made double batches of this into hot dog buns around I decided to go old school and do it by hand as you suggested, and they turned out perfect. It was a sticky dough, but it turned out just fine. We hydrated some dried onion and sprinkled it on for some.
PS- made your challah last week to much fanfare. Made it into French toast and served it with bacon. I made them last week for a party also actually twice within this month. These are great for hotdogs and imagine these to be even more fantastic if i stuffed these with some peanut butter and sugar. I found that I could easily make 12 or 13 rolls about 3 to 3. For the final rise on the pan , I just covered with a tea towel.
Also, in step 1, I heated the cold milk and cold water together in a small saucepan until there was steam rising—just a few minutes. The buns were great and we received lots of complements. My partner and I have been obsessing over burger buns every time we visit the states. So glad other people seem to have had the same problem. Recipe looks great and am definitely going to give these a go.
Quite a small amount of butter too which is always good. I made these to go with some leftover burgers from lunch. Still, they baked in the time you specify, and were lovely and tender, and ever so mildly sweet! Thanks for all your helpful responses to earlier posts! Especially about using the KitchenAid and yeast. My mother was also keen….. Worked it about a minute after the liquid went in. In 16 minutes they were perfect. Can I just say.. What I was really wondering is, can I put it in a loaf pan instead of rolling out individual buns?
I just made burger buns but when I tasted it, bahhhhh. I will never ever buy buns in the supermarket again! Hello, I am not sure you are still responding but I had a problem with this recipe and hoped you might tell me where I went wrong. The problem is that the buns when formed for the second rise spread out like crazy and did rise but when I brushed on the egg wash they went completely flat. I baked them and they stayed very flat. They did taste good, just not a very good hamburger bun. I followed your recipe carefully.
I did the rise in my oven with a pan of hot water to get the temperature because I keep my house rather cool in the winter 62F. Hi Wally — They might have risen too much. Hi Deb and thank you for such a quick response. That very well could have been the case, I was thinking along those lines. So I am going to try again with less rise time. Whatever buns you want to call them…they are the best!
I wonder if my buns will turn put too dry. I did use AP instead of bread flour, so that could be the problem. Are all the measurements correct? I am working the recipe right now and am finding my dough to be very dry. Thanks, and thanks so much for doing the bun research! I did add more warm milk while mixing. I wonder why I had that problem- I see from past posts that everyone else had sticky dough. I must try this again sometime, I am definitely satisfied with the result. Bring the hot dogs to room temperature and rinse and dry them.
Shape the dough around the dogs after the first rise, and then let them rest for about 20 minutes before baking as directed above. I usually cut the dogs in half and the cheese slices in quarters to make the portions smaller perfect for kids. Also, I use poppy seeds instead of sesame for that Chicago dog kind of feel.
They freeze and reheat very well; put them on a plate and into the microwave for 3 — 30 second stints, turning the dog over after each 30 seconds this avoids a soggy bottom. These are soooooo good! Im eating one right now. We are having a BBQ in a few hours and these will be perfect!! I put the ingredients in my bread machine on the dough setting, and then when that was done I shaped them loosely into small disk-ball things and let them rise very quickly!
I baked them on my pizza stone with a muffin tin full of water on the bottom I did the egg wash and sesame seeds per the recipe on only half, but will definitely do for all next time and poof! Light, airy, still chewy is that possible?? I cut the recipe in half, ostensibly to make four, but ended up shaping them into 3 because we apparently make ginormous burgers. This is the same recipe for brioche buns that I have.
Like you, I have searched and searched for a good hamburger bun recipe and have been very disappointed, until now! I am anxious to try them with the sophisticated sloppy joes I am making tonight! Thanks again for an amazing recipe! I just made these, and could not control myself and had to have one straight out of the over with a pat of butter of course ;] and all I can say is WOWWW these are incredible!
I hope they are just as good when they are cooled down. I only need 4 for tonight- so that leaves 4 to snack on! I have also been searching for a yummy bun recipe. Though not nearly as diligently as you! I saw this page a few months back, but only just made your recipe today.
I used my Zo bread machine and shaped them into 12 hot dog buns. They are so good. You know how you get mobbed by ducks at the park when you have a bag of bread? I tore them some bites off of my roll and they mobbed me! We ate another three at dinner an hour later. Just tripled the batch to make slider buns for a party! Would you mind if I post this recipe on my blog??? I would, of course, link it back to your post. Lisa — Water is often introduced into the oven in bread baking at the start of the baking time.
This is to emulate professional bread ovens, which pump in steam in the first few minutes of baking. The steam contributes to a better crust on breads and rolls.

And yes, that dough is sticky! I love that they actually bring something to the party, rather than detract or just fill space. Hubs loves them too. I make some of them into what resembles a hot dog bun though kind of flat for all the local brats we eat throughout the summer as well These do freeze well if well wrapped. I did this last year as well and can say that I noticed no change in flavor or texture. Thanks again for such a delicious recipe!! I have made these several times and absolutely love them.
But, on Friday, I decided to give a King Arthur recipe that landed itself in my inbox a try, and the results were wonderful. No knead burger buns with Cheddar! So quick, so easy, tender interior and a slightly flaky outside. I made these for my family on Sunday…. Everyone fought over the leftovers the next day for sandwiches. I will definitely make these again. PS- forgot to add that the dough was actually not sticky at all but quite dry. I was a bit worried but they tasted perfect! I made a double batch of this recipe last night, and shaped them to mini hot dog bun size for our picnic-themed church refreshments today.
I had intended to use your recipe exactly as written, but discovered, too late in the evening, that I was down to one egg my kids enjoyed one too many hard boiled eggs for breakfast this past week.
Potato Rosemary Rolls | Two Peas & Their Pod
I contemplated going to the store to get more eggs, but it was really late, and the yeast was already activated, so I used by flax substitute. I skipped the egg wash. It was enjoyed by all, especially my egg-allergic child. I do look forward to making this again, with the eggs, and in hamburger bun shaped in the future, but glad the egg-free version came out moist and delicious. Thank you for this recipe. Made them and put a breakfast sausage and fried egg sandwich on them!
As always, thank you Deb! You are an inspiration! I mistakenly added 2 eggs…and they were still fantastic. What would have happened if I added just 1? How much in advance can I make these buns? Can I make the buns today and bake them on Tuesday? How would I store them? Repeat on hands as needed. I made 8 hot dog buns and 5 burger buns. This one is a keeper! Bread flour has extra gluten in it, which helps make for stronger, stretchier bread doughs. It will be just fine.
This gives you a taller, rather than flat, hot dog style bun. This is a fantastic recipe! I just made these, literally just this minute they came out of the oven! I made these a couple weeks ago and they are the best buns I have ever made they were perfect no flaws at all. So glad I found a recipe I can stick with took a while to find one too.
But these were so tasty. They held together with pulled bbq chicken very nicely. Thanks for the blog. Hi, well I am at the point of waiting for the first rise and thought I would read the rest of the replies. The only dough recipe I have ever made is a pizza dough recipe. Who is right here?? I always mixed it up before the bubbling when I made pizza dough. Hi Jay — The first step says to combine the milk, sugar and yeast. You can combine it by whisking, stirring, etc. I just made these and it was the first time I have made bread, let alone an enriched bread like brioche.
All those worries went right out the window when we tried them. They knocked on our door the next morning to tell me that it was absolutely fabulous with their breakfast. Little did I know that his father used to be a baker!!!
See a Problem?
Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! This is definitely going in my vault: I often rift on recipes I find on blogs. This one I followed exactly. I could say more, but why? I made sliders for a dinner with friends yesterday and these buns made half size were the most popular component. Thanks for the post and the recipe: This recipe is exactly what I was looking for.
I have tried it three times now and although I use slightly less water than stated in the recipe, it comes out just the way a burger bun should be. My kids love it! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us. I pass on your advice to everyone who sees this page. These were tender, sturdy, tasty, tempting. So soft if not fluffy.
I just feel strongly about bread. Just made these tonight. Been saving this recipe since you first posted these. They were soft pillows of delicious goodness. I have made these twice now, no plastic wrap for rise 2 nor did I brush with an egg wash. I make 10 buns on two pans so that most of them do not touch I was trying to eliminate ANY risk of collapsing ….
I struggle with getting the sticky dough balls a uniform size, but the smaller buns turn out to be the perfect size for my four and six year old: This is my second ever baking attempt. It was ridiculously slimy and hard to incorporate, but I kept at it for 5 more minutes. So fluffy and tasty. There was a bit of a schoolboy error in that I forgot to oil the clingfilm for the second rise and for a moment I thought all was lost, but they fixed themselves during cooking and ended up perfect.
The bake is superb C for 25mins and it makes some of the nicest toast! Just made these and realized i put both eggs in the dough. Hope they work out. Anybody else make this rookie mistake? LISA, I did the same with the eggs oops and they came out great!! Thanks for a great recipe SK!! Unless, of course I should expect to find it on the 9th page of Google custom search results…. Wow, these are dreeeamy! Was wondering if I should store these in large Ziplocs-although I swear I can always taste some sort of plastic-y aftertaste when I do that- or should I put them in a paper bag, or just in tin foil?
I seem to recall on your pretzel recipe maybe that one? I made these last night with chorizo and manchego burgers from serious eats. I used all strong white bread flour. I just threw all of the ingredients into my breadmaker in a random order with 1tsp of fast action yeast on the dough setting — left it an extra 30 mins to rise after the dough cycle completed then made into buns and left to rise another 30 mins while the oven heated. It worked really well, nom nom nom. I followed this recipe exactly.
When I took the plastic wrap off, the buns fell spectacularly. They ended up so flat I just used two buns — one on top, one on the bottom. I let these rise a bit too long and a bit too hot I popped them into my oven which had not finished cooling from baking a cake so they spread a bit too much, but the taste is awesome. I did everything in my stand mixer—used a beater blade to cut in the butter and the hook to knead. Although I did tweak it due to lack of bread flour and personal taste.
I also coated the bowl with a light layer olive oil as well, and the sheets I baked them on. Thanks for this recipe…I went to no less that six bakeries yesterday and not one sold brioche! So I just made these and they are delicious…and my house smells lovely! First of all, thank you so much for your blog. So…I made these yesterday and and I had some difficulties. First of all, the dough was more like a batter.
I added flour but I was afraid to add too much, so I think I erred in not adding enough. Next time I will try and get an estimate as to what the flour should weigh and go with that. Also, probably related, when my dough was rising on the second rise it tended to spread out instead of raising up. As she did, I just reshaped them and threw them in the oven and they did rise, but they were a bit dense. We enjoyed them, I just would possibly like them more if they were a bit less dense.
I did use active dry yeast and followed the ingredients and recipe to the letter up to the end of that second rise. Mine were, in fact, incredibly moist and had a wonderful crumb. I found that mine spread instead of rising up-down too — this wonderfully shaped the final rolls. I made these tonight for some well-deserving grass fed ground beef that will become hamburgers tomorrow. I decided to try one as I was a little skeptical with the dough being so sticky.
These buns are so tender and delicious! My entire house smelled fantastic. I used my kitchen aid stand mixer for the kneading and it was super easy. I just let the dough rise in the KA bowl then used a scraper to scrape it onto a lightly floured cutting board. I added very little extra flour. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Hey Deb, made this recipe last week and it was great! I used ice instead of water to really get the steam going.
I was wondering about making them multi-grain or whole wheat… could I just swap out the flour? Instead of using minimal flour when kneading on a surface, can you use oil to stop it sticking to the surface? Hi, I made these last night in a bread machine, to go with my home grown, well hung, Dexter beef burgers- Delicious combination BUT I was in a rush and it was so sloppy I had to put the dough into a muffin tin to bake!
They were lovely- just a very strange shape! I have TWO freezers full of fantastic beef and a huge 4th July party coming up so I really need to get this recipe right!! My goodness the questions keep coming 3 years after you first posted this recipe! Love your blog, It is amazing the number of other cooks that post your recipes on their sites…. What a awesome recipe: I assume you mean more process pictures than are shown above? The dough is definitely on the batter-ish side. You can hopefully see this from my photos. You can stiffen it up with extra flour and it will hold a taller shape.
Made these for the first time for 4th of July My house was freaky-warm too so they rose up pretty fast. Very simple and very satisfying. En una taza de medir vidrio, se mezcla una taza de agua templado, la leche, la levadura, y azucar. Mientras tanto, se bate un huevo. En un tazon grande, se baten las harinas con la sal. Se forma la masa en una bola y se la regresa en el tazon. Se cubre una bandeja de horno con papel de pergamino. Se forma cada en una bola, y se las pone en la bandeja de horno, cm la una de la otra. Se pone una cacerola grande llena de agua en el fondo del horno.
Se bate los huevos restantes y se los rozan en los bollos. Se la pone en un estante para enfriarse. I made the brioche buns last week……but had to put the batter into the fridge after the first rise. The batter stayed in the fridge overnight. The buns were wonderful. This week — I again had to put the batter into the fridge after the first rise and then was unable to bake the next day. This afternoon, I have formed the rolls 10 using a large ice cream scoop and they are rising. I will let you know if a two day refrigeration enhances the buns or detracts from their potential!
It is very liberating to have the dough ready to go just when you need it! Alas — Two days in the fridge is one day too many….. The buns took a very long time to rise and then did not rise very well…….. One day in the fridge is just right! I made these as 36 mini burgers for our housewarming Saturday night and served them with tiny beef patties. I substituted the water for some whey I had as a result of over culturing my yogurt and these babies were absolutely incredible. Definitely a keeper and very easy to make!
For a long time, I have been searching for a recipe for burger buns that works. This is as good as its gonna get. Followed the method to the letter and achieved fantastic results. I used wholemeal bread flour and they look and taste great. The book feels friendly, happy, and fun. This might be his personal encyclopedia, featuring more than of his favorite recipes that trace that arc of American culinary history from the everyday to the obscure. He was among the first food journalists to argue that American had its own cuisine that was derivative of the old countries.
Her honesty is refreshing. She might have hated to cook, but she could. Even if one never makes a single recipe, this book is a treasure for her trenchant observations and way with words. She shares recipes and tips, and is candid and endlessly charming in her confessions about her successes and failures in the kitchen and in her life.
