Reviews for 40-Minute Hamburger Buns
"Is this really 2 tablespoons of yeast or 2 teaspoons?"
"Jvallas - yes, 2T of yeast is correct. That's the secret to the fast recipe. The added yeast gives a very quick rise and has no ill effect on flavor.This is my second time to make these and they're great. Very easy to do and has a big impact. I look forward to making these many times in the future."
"This is my new go to recipe for buns. Quick, easy and so yummy. I don't often have time to make buns from scratch, but can't eat store bought buns. I'm so grateful for this recipe. Thank you!"
"Is 2T yeast the correct amount?"
"This recipe is amazing as is. The first time I made it, I was looking for a quick and fairly easy recipe for hamburger buns. They were amazing and delicious! I have made it atleast 50 times since. I and have tried many many recipes for bread, and consider myself a pretty decent baker, but this is by far one of my favorites. Not only can you make super quick and delicious hamburger buns, they make delicious yeast rolls. I add just a bit more sugar, make the rolls a little smaller, and coat with butter after baking. Yummmm."
"These are great because you can have homemade in less than an hour! The bread was soft and tender with great flavor. We will make these again!"
"This is a great recipe."
"I have made these twice. I used organic white flour the first time and organic gluten free flour blend the second. Both turned out amazing!"
"These turned out great! I left out the sugar because all American bread is far too sweet for our taste. My whole family loves them and I now make them at least once a week, mostly for fish burgers."
"These hamburger buns were exactly as the recipe states. They were quick, and definitely fluffy and hearty. I was very skeptical that they would taste too "yeasty" with so much of it, but they didn't at all. This is a great recipe for when you don't have any buns and don't feel like running out to the store."
