Soft Homemade Hamburger Buns -For Bread machine
1 – 1/2 Cups water
1 – 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 – 3/4 Cups bread flour
1 – 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
1 – 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 – 1/2 teaspoons active bread yeast
Add ingredients to your bread machine in the order recommended by its manufacturer.
Mine are as follows and is the standard for most: ( I have the West Bend Automatic Bread & Dough maker )
- Add water and oil to bread pan
- Add all dry ingredients, Except yeast. Tap pan to settle and level dry ingredients, pushing some of the flour mixture into the corners.
- Make a slight well in center of ingredients and add yeast.
- Place you pan into your bread machine chamber and pick the Dough setting.
When the dough is done put it on a lightly floured board and divide into three equal sections. The goal is to get 9 hamburger buns of appropriate size and shape.
When you’ve got the buns the right size and shape put them on a greased cookie sheet. Remember not to put them too close together as they’ll get larger as they cook.
Cover the buns with a clean, light-weight kitchen towel and let the buns rise until double in size. Then remove the towel and put the buns in a 400 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
Move the cooked buns to a rack to cool.
