Homemade Hamburger Buns

I'm not sure if there is anything as delicious as fresh homemade bread straight out of the oven slathered in butter and dripping with Crosby's Molasses (ok maybe I had you until the molasses part, but trust me it is soooo delicious!)  I think with all our bread making we are beginning to get spoiled around here so let me tell you how happy I was to get this recipe from another mama friend of mine! 

These buns can be whipped up very quickly (40 minutes) and are the perfect match for burgers, sandwiches, and of course a favourite here pulled pork. 

The original recipe is from taste of home but here is my version of the recipe. 


2 Tbsp Active Dry Yeast
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp warm water (don't get too hot; it will burn the yeast)
Sprinkle of sugar 
1/3 Vegetable oil
1/4 cup Sugar 
1 egg
1 tsp salt
3 - 3 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 

Melted butter
Course Salt 

1.  In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast, warm water and a sprinkle of sugar.  Let stand for 10 minutes or until it begins to froth.  Add oil, sugar, egg and salt. Mix with the dough hook.  Then add flour 1/2 cup at a time.  The dough will look every soft and sticky.  Keep adding flour until the dough begins to form and pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl. 

2.  Turn dough onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic.  3-5 minutes.  Do NOT let rise.  Divid into 12 pieces and shape each into a ball. 
      *we have a kitchen scale so I weighed the dough, then divid it by 12, so all the balls areapproximately the same size.  But if you don't have a scale just eye ball it. 

3. Place the balls on a lined cookie sheet.  Cover and let rest 20 minutes.  

4.  Bake at 425 for 8-12 minutes (it only takes 8 minutes in my oven) or until golden brown. Brush the tops with melted butter and a sprinkle of salt. Remove from pans to wire rack to cool.
