40-Minute Hamburger Buns
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + resting Bake: 10 min.
Made these for my family and this recipe was so good and simple.
A magical recipe. I made it exactly as written. I am an experienced bread maker and didn’t see how this could work. I thought I would end up with hockey pucks of dubious texture. But it works! Compared to most bun recipes requiring hours of rising, these are a breeze. They look perfect and are more delicious than store bought. They freeze well.
So easy to make and my kids loved them!!
This is a super simple, quick and easy bun recipe. I live in humid south Florida, so I had to use a bit more flour. I think flattening out the dough balls before the ten minute rest will make a wider bun. I made 12 bun that came out a bit small at 3 1/2 inches wide. Next time I’m dividing into 8 portions to make larger buns. Overall a great recipe.
My go to bun recipe! So easy and never fails to impress
This is a solid quick bun recipe. Some of the questions here are answered by remembering the title of the recipe. These are 40-minute buns... buns from nothing in 40 minutes. So, that's why the amount of yeast used is higher than you would normally find, you need that boost to make them rise enough in the short amount of proof time. That is also why "you don't let them rest when they are significantly better when you do" if you did that, you wouldn't have buns in 40 minutes. You'd have normal buns, if it's normal buns you're after, it sounds like you already know how to make those. Though, I'd caution you to adjust your yeast amount if you're going to let them rise, that could be a hilarious dough disaster... a doughsaster... sorry. Happy Bunning.
Terrible. I added 2 tablespoons of yeast and it was an absolute disaster area so of course I had to add more flour and then after reading the comments I realized I should have done that in the beginning. Not a good recipe I'll stick with my own
My family absolutely loves these rolls! but a question that I really would like answered is... Is this really supposed to use 2 tablespoons of yeast or is it supposed to be 2 teaspoons of yeast? Two tablespoons is an awful lot of yeast! We also like to add Lipton Onion soup mix to ours!
Edit to my previous review - I meant to say increase the salt to 2 teaspoons ( which I did in subsequent batches and it was perfect). Also I only used the standard 2 1/4 Teaspoons of yeast (which is equal to one packet) NOT tablespoons, and again it came out perfect. This is now my go to for quick and easy bread!
I've made this 10 times during COVID lock down. Personal favorite!
