Description

Easy to make and way better than anything on the shelf at the grocery store.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • ⅓ cups Neutral Oil, Like Canola
  • ¼ cups Honey
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups Bread Flour
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour, Or More As Needed

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 425ºF.

In the bowl of a stand mixer or any other large bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Add the oil and honey and let this mix stand for 5 minutes until it’s bubbly and looks creamy.

Mix in the egg, salt, bread flour and all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. If your dough is still sticky after this flour is mixed in, add a bit more all-purpose flour until it is smooth and soft.

Knead the dough (with a dough hook/mixer or your hands) until it’s smooth and springy, about 3-5 minutes. Bonus: we don’t have to let it rise!

Divide the dough into 12 pieces and roll each section into a ball. Plop the rounds 2-3 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.

Cover the buns and let them sit and rest for 15 minutes.

Bake at 425°F for 10-12 minutes or until the buns are golden on top. Take out of the oven and cool for a few minutes before slicing.

Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. We only eat kosher bread/buns and they are very expensive and sometimes hard to find. I’ve taken to making most of our bread needs and this will be an awesome addition to my recipes.

Easy recipe which comes out great and works well as dinner rolls too. I’ve found that the bread flour and the canola oil make a big difference. I used all unbleached all purpose the first time with vegetable oil instead of canola. It resulted in a much denser bun with a stronger honey flavor. Still excellent, but if you’re going for a light hamburger bun I suggest using the bread flour and the canola oil and I usually never use bread flour even when the recipe calls for it.

THIS IS THEEEEEE EASIEST, NO FAIL bun recipe I’ve ever made! I’ve tried it with various kinds of flours with great results. One time I ran out of yeast and had a bit less than 2 T. and it still came out wonderful! Go try it and wow your family!

This is a great and easy recipe, which my family loved! It took very little time as well. Next time, I’m going to try a cup of whole wheat flour to make a wheat bun.
