Making hamburger buns at home is easier than you may think, especially if you are using a bread machine. I use my bread machine to prepare the dough for these hamburger buns. Once the dough is ready I shape it into rolls and then bake the rolls in the oven. It couldn't be easier. All you need to do is add the ingredients to the bread machine in the order listed in the recipe. Your dough will be ready to shape into buns in 120 minutes.
The recipe I converted and tested in my bread machine is from the bakers at King Arthur Flour, Beautiful Burger Buns. Check the original recipe if you prefer the conventional preparation method. For your shopping convenience, I've included affiliate links in this post to two kitchen tools that I find indispensable when baking bread: my bread machine and my kitchen scale. These links are for the same models I use in my kitchen and love.
- 3-1/2 cups (14.75 ounces) all-purpose unbleached flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
- 1 Tablespoon bread machine yeast
First, measure out the lukewarm water. You'll want to decide on the right amount based on the time of year and humidity. Use 3/4 of a cup in very humid conditions. I also like to measure my flour by weight. If you don't have a kitchen scale yet, please consider getting one. I use mine several times a week and wouldn't want to be without it.

Place the dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet, then gently flatten each bun using the bottom of a measuring cup, cover the dough, and let rise for one hour. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F near the end of the hour.
