Better than the recipe I had been using, not as light and fluffy as I am looking for, but a good bun.
These had a pretty good flavor but the texture wasn't perfect for me as they turned out a little too packy.
Absolutely beautiful buns! My family gravitated to the kitchen while they were baking because they smelled so good. They are light and fluffy with a nice lightly crunchy crust. Tastiest hamburger buns I've ever had and homemade to boot! Thanks! A quick tip to cut the rise time in half. Cover with a damp towel and put in the oven, turn the oven on to the lowest temp (170) and as soon as the preheat light goes off turn the oven off. They will be fully risen in 30 minutes. The other tip was that I had to look up an amount for 'a 1/4 ounce package of yeast' it's 2 1/4tsps.
I've made these twice now, but am still trying to be gentle with the shaping so they are lighter. These are very good for sloppy joes since they don't disintegrate like store-bought buns!! Great taste! I had to figure out the measurements since I don't have a "1/4 Tbsp" and I buy yeast in a large qty. They bake faster than the 15 min in my oven also--maybe 10-12 min. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
We tried these tonight and ended up making a run to the store. These turned out hard as rocks. Having said that, my bread machine was making funny noises, so I'm going to get a new one and we'll try this again. I'll update then :) They look wonderful from the photo!
I love this recipe!! I have made it several times and they always come out great. I usually divide the dough and make hot dog/sandwich buns too. As soon as they cool I place them in a plastic freezer bag and freeze them and use them as needed. Its great to pull out a frozen sandwich roll in the morning and have a perfectly fresh roll ready for me at lunch time much better then those store bought rolls. Great recipe! Thank You!
This sure made my house smell good while baking. They didn't rise as good as I expected but they such taste wonderful. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
