I was looking for a nice burgerrestaurant style fluffy burger bun but could not quit find what i wanted, so i made this myself, using following ingredients.
The burger buns came out great, and are nice and soft, just like the ones i remember from the days i was able to go out to fast food restaurants...  And they actually are more golden brown then dark.. Picture is not showing  their real color.


235 ml of milk (low fat)
120 ml of water
55 gr of butter

600 gr all purpose flower Use bakers flour in Australia, JD Moderator
7 gr dried yeast
25 gr of sugar
9 gr of salt


1 egg and sesame seeds (optional)

Put water milk and butter in the bowl and turn , speed 2, 3.5 minutes on 50°

mix the dry ingredients and add to the bowl.

Put on knead for 3 minutes

Put the dough on a flowered surface.. (dough is slightly sticky so put flower on your hands too) an divide in 9-12 parts (depending on the size you like - you have about 1100 gr of dough)

Roll into soft balls and flatten them on a greased baking paper or tray. Cover and rest for 35 minutes..  If it is cold inside u may decide on a longer resting time.

Beat the spare egg and brush eggwash on the buns.. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top!

Can't wait to taste it with the leftover loinsteak i barbecued yesterday!


Put in a preheated oven of 200° and bake for 12 minutes!

Goldfish, Chrissa ns halex, tnx..  I admitt i posted before serving them, but they are realt great! So soft, no jawbreaker,at all..  I just cut them with a knife and put them cutting side in a dry hot pan for 2 minutes,to give them a roasting and to make sure sauces would not soak in too much...  I have half of them in a plastic bag and will keep u posted how they keep for a few days...  I love them, and my man is already a huge fan...  What else can one hope for?

Judy, this is a recipe i constructed today, based on feedback i got from the forum and some other stuff i found on the net..l and it is  a winner i think.. The buns are so moist and light tou can freeze them for sure...  But i am a maniac.. I rahter use it all up and make a new batch as soon as i cab.. This one for me is a mayor break through.. With my allergy i can not go out for fast food.l so having family with kids over is always a gamble.. This one will win everyone over.. And it is low in sugar and fat
Win win.. Love it lol

That's certainly great to hear Stef and I can sense your excitement about this achievement.
Did you use plain flour not bakers flour?

Every time i find something like that i want to share judy! There are so many people that are fed up with store bought.. When i find a better alternative i am.over the world.. (olympic spirit i guess lol)

I always use plain flower... No,additives, no special mixes.. Only for pizza i use double 00

If you do halex, just divide the dough and roll it in to sausages, fold backt the ends and roll some more and then let them rest for 35 minutes.. Go the same way as in the recipe and flatten thr buns slightly,  but maybe reduce the cooking time slightly

Congratulations Stef. You are entitled to feel very proud. I will give these a go but may reduce the sugar as we don't like any sweetness in bread. I often reduce sugar to a bare pinch in bread recipes and they still rise.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
