Homemade Hamburger Buns Recipe: Easy & Additive-Free

Updated: Aug 31, 2023

Folks, consider making your own hamburger buns instead of purchasing store-bought ones! There's truly something special about enjoying a juicy burger on bread you've made yourself. Free from artificial additives and made with simple ingredients, the process is straightforward and rewarding!

Preparation time: 2.5h

Cooking time: 15 minutes

This recipe makes: 8 buns

Wholesome Ingredients for Perfect Buns:

  • 180ml lukewarm milk (or water as an alternative), plus extra for brushing

  • 20g (0.7oz) fresh yeast or 2 tsp active dry yeast

  • 430g (15oz) plain flour

  • 30g (1oz) room temperature butter

  • 1 egg

  • 40g (1.4oz) sugar

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • Sesame seeds for garnish

  • 40g (1.4oz) melted butter, for brushing

Step-by-Step: Crafting the Ultimate Burger Bun

  1. In the lukewarm milk, dissolve the yeast. Allow it to sit for 15 minutes to activate.

  2. Combine the yeast mixture with all the other ingredients. Knead the dough until it's smooth, roughly 8 minutes. Let the dough rise for about an hour or until it has doubled in size.

  3. Divide the dough into 8 equal parts. Shape each portion into a ball and slightly flatten it. Place the portions on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Let them rise for another hour. (Tip: A bit of oil can help in handling this type of dough).

  4. Once risen, brush each bun with milk and sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Bake in a preheated oven at 190°C (375°F) with the fan on for approximately 15 minutes or until they turn golden brown.

  5. After baking, transfer the buns to a cooling rack and brush them with the melted butter.

  6. Slice the buns open, fill with your preferred juicy meat, and enjoy!
