Hamburger Buns

Makes 12 buns


  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 tablespoon sugar (I use Sugar in the Raw)

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt

  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1 envelope active dry yeast


  • Preheat the oven to 400┬░

  • Combine the milk and water and heat in microwave safe dish for 60 seconds (or until warm).

  • Add everything to your bread maker (liquids first). Set your bread maker to dough.

  • When the maker finishes its dough cycle, punch down the dough and divide into 12 portions They should be a little larger than a golf ball. Make tight balls out of the dough by pulling the dough tightly around and pinching it at the bottom. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. After the rolls sit for a minute and relax, flatten each ball with the palm of your hand until it is 3 to 4 inches wide. You may want to oil your palm first. Set rolls aside and cover them until they double in size, about 20 minutes.

  • Bake for 14 minutes in a 400┬░oven or until nicely browned on the top and bottom. When they cool a bit, cut in half with a bread knife. They freeze beautifully.

  • Enjoy!
