Here on our ranch, I cook for three men who love hamburgers. These fluffy yet hearty buns are just right for their big appetites. I also serve the buns plain with a meal. —Jessie McKenney, Twodot, Montana

"Sorry, but I have to agree with racamp I actually made the buns twice thinking I measured incorrectly and they were terrible both times.....perhaps you need to revise the recipe or give better directions.

I am an experienced baker and have not had this problem before guess there are no real shortcuts for good bread or buns."

"I have never been much of a bread or roll maker. This recipe is quick and easy. I didn't get the shape perfect, but that will come. I will make these over and over. Good flavor, easy to make. I'd much rather bake my own than buy!"

"It would have been 5 stars if the recipe proportions were correct. The liquid to dry ingredients ratio was way off. The dough was more of a batter when made as directed. I decreased the water to 1C and increased the flour to 4.5 to 5 cups. Keep in mind this dough needs to be soft to raise properly. Also, divide into 8, not 12, to have normal sized buns. With these corrections it was incredibly tasty."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 13, 2015

"While not an expert, I do have experience making various kinds of homemade breads. This recipe sounded interesting. The first batch, made as written, were suprisingly...NOT good. Bland and much too dense. In fact, it was like handling a puck. On the 2nd batch, I decided to have a longer "rest" time on the dough before baking. They really weren't any better. These are bland tasting, much too small (I made 8 instead of 12) and much too dense to make a good sandwich/hamburger bun. I wanted to like this after seeing all the high ratings. Sorry. I will continue to look for a good 'burger bun recipe."
