Reviews for 40-Minute Hamburger Buns
Sort By :
"Making bread, bagels and the like on a regular basis, I find this recipe is ideal for producing on a larger scale. Between a stand mixer and only two baking sheets and a regular-sizes oven, I find myself able to crank out about 3 dozen buns an hour if I use the baking time to mix the next batch.In term of finished product, I find the egg introduces a nice richness to these buns and I intend to experiment using a 1/2 cornmeal and 1/2 flour in the future."
"This is a great recipe, I am a pastry chef and bake bread weekly frequently. The change you need to make is rise for 45 min to an hour. Melt butter not thin just until melted and brush on top, need a delicate brush for this and sprinkle kosher salt after, bake 8 min. Let cool then slice gently bread knife. The density is due I see in the reviews is probably from the temp of water not being exact (110) for yeast to grow, the egg being cold slowing yeast, and the ten minute rising.After slicing spread mayo and toast in a hot pan on the inside sides yum!Tastes delicious!"
"I have followed this recipe to the T and mine came out beautifully. Today will be my second time making them but instead of hamburger buns I will be rolling into hotdog buns. I read lots of the reviews and took the advice of leaving it longer to proof. I left mine for an hour and I must say I think that's the trick to eliminate the density some folks are complaining of experiencing. I am by no means an experienced bread maker; it's just little over a year I have began to make my own bread etc. at home to eliminate as much store bought foods as I can.Definitely my go to recipe for buns. My next try will be using it for a bread loaf. :-)"
"Great rolls, easy and quick to make- I liked the flavor and texture as well."
"I wanted to make burgers and was out of any kind of bread, so this recipe was perfect for that. Just out of the oven they were good. After that, we had to warm them up to make them soft. They were too sweet and more than a little dense for my taste. I let mine rest in a VERY warm place, so my buns plumped up pretty good in 10 minutes. Next time I will let them rise 20 minutes or more to see if it helps with the denseness of the bun (and cut back on the sugar.) I lost track of how much flour I actually added, so I can't comment on the ingredient ratio."
