Why Homemade Bread Machine Buns?
As someone who hates being rushed, and never feels like there is enough time in the day, why would I choose to make something like bread machine hamburger buns from scratch?
They taste amazing, and they don’t stick to the roof of your mouth when you take a bite like so many store bought versions do.
Plus, added bonus–I can pronounce all the ingredients!
Since I’m Not Exactly A Culinary Wizard
I appreciate a never-fail recipe that allows me to feel like I’m not completely failing at the homemaking thing. When my children look back they’ll have memories of mom baking breads and desserts, as well as healthy, colorful meals.
Hopefully they’ll also remember they’re loved.
The Bread Machine Book
When I first received my bread machine, the only recipes I had were those that came in the box. Eventually I stumbled across this book at a book swap. Suddenly my homemade bread game was on a whole new level.
One of my favorite recipes from this book is actually the recipe I’ve modified and shared here. It comes from page 75 of The Bread Machine Book written by Marjie Lambert.
- 1 egg
- 7/8 cup milk
- 4 1/2 tbsp butter
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 3 cups bread flour
- 1 tbsp yeast
Begin by placing all ingredients in your bread pan in the order suggested by your machine instructions.
Set machine for dough stage.
When the machine’s cycle is finished, remove the dough and punch down.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut dough into eight even sections.
Allow the dough to rest for 5-minutes.
Oil two baking sheets (or use a Silpat mat like I do).
Roll each piece of dough into a round ball.
Flatten ball into a patty measuring approximately 3 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick.
Place rolls onto the prepared sheets.
Cover loosely, and allow to rise for 20 minutes.
Bake 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
Cool then slice down the center for the traditional hamburger bun look.
Just a side note: These are amazing to just munch on as dinner rolls as well.
