Reviews for 40-Minute Hamburger Buns
"I have been experimenting with yeast breads for some time now. Have had awesome outcomes and many flops! I use whole grain flour instead of white flour, and that is always the challenge. So I was up to challenge this recipe by making some whole-grain adaptations and eliminating the egg for vegans like me. I LOVED the outcome. These are the changes I made.I substituted whole wheat pastry flour, same amount as the recipe calls. I used 2 TBSP of aquafaba (garbanzo bean liquid) and poured that into the yeast mixture. I also mixed 1 TBSP of physllium husks into the flour. I used only a handful of sugar, but I used coconut palm sugar instead. I mixed it all up, kneaded it and I am so pleased. This is a keeper. I also topped some with black onion seeds and others with sesame seeds. Next time, I will make bigger balls as I make big veggie patties. These were too small for the patties I have, but I am nonetheless pleased with the outcome.. Quick, easy and now more healthier."
"Was much, much better than expected.I followed others and used less oil, subbed honey for sugar and 1c. Whole wheat. Rolled dough and used empty 28 oz. tomatoe can opened at both ends as cutter. Perfect for 6 large buns.Old saying, BREAD SPREADS ??So worth it!"
"Have been making bread for 25 years and was slightly sceptical about this one, but it works, easy and fantastic!!!!!"
"This is the first time I've ever made bread and they came out very very good. I reduced the sugar just a tiny bit, I don't like it with much sugar but they came out light and with a good taste. I added sesame seeds and that's about it. Try it, you'll enjoy them like I did...."
"This is a decent recipe. I ran out of bread and didn't have enough time to make my regular hamburger bun recipe so I took a chance on this one. I followed the recipe as instructed and they turned out just about as expected. Slightly sweet, a little dense and perfectly sized for those of us who are watching our portions. I hope not to be in such a bind again, but if I ever am, I wouldn't hesitate to make these buns."
