|Homemade Hamburger Buns|
With raves from the Baking Banter readers and my trusty bread machine at the ready, I decided to give these buns a try. Pulled pork was on the menu for dinner. Homemade buns were certain to be a welcome addition.
King Arthur Flour's Beautiful Burger Buns
- 3-1/2 cups (14.75 ounces) all-purpose unbleached flour (I used King Arthur)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
- 1 Tablespoon bread machine yeast
I made these buns using my bread machine. The King Arthur Baking Banter site walks you through the manual directions if that's how you want to do it. First I measured out the lukewarm water. I opted to use 3/4 of a cup because of the very humid conditions. You'll want to decide on the right amount based on the time of year and humidity. I also opted to measure out my flour by weight because of the humidity. The 14.75 ounces was a little less than 3 cups.
|Weigh Your Flour|
|Roll the Dough on the Counter|
Place the dough on a parchment lined baking sheet, gently flattten each bun using the bottom of a measuring cup, cover and let rise for one hour. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F near the end of the hour.
|Flatten the Dough|
|Brush with Butter|
|Brush Again with Butter|
