{ Cooking Thursday - Fluffy Hamburger Buns }


Good morning and welcome back to another Cooking Thursday.
I must say, I have really been enjoying posting a recipe every Thursday.  It has made me want to dig into my cookbooks, cook and bake more, and share them here with you.  It keeps me on track, that's for sure.

So for today's recipe, I am sharing these amazing, fluffy, delicious hamburger buns, from Alyona Demyanchuk.   I have made many a hamburger buns over the years, but none have ever been so light and fluffy, and so close to store bought, as these are.  They are going to be my go to burger bun.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Fluffy Hamburger Buns
Yield: 32 rolls 


2 cups warm water 
4 Tbsp dry yeast 
1/2 cup sugar 
1 Tbsp salt 
2 eggs 
1/2 cup shortening 
6 1/4 cup flour 
How to Make Hamburger Buns: 
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Whisk in the sugar, salt, eggs, and shortening. Stir in the flour and knead 7 minutes. Let rise 30 minutes or until doubled. 
Cut dough in half and then cut each half into 16 equal pieces. Roll all 32 pieces into balls and place onto a cookie sheet about 2-inches apart (9 rolls fit into a large 18x13 cookie sheet.) 
Let buns rise in the cookie sheet until tripled in size or the size of a hamburger bun. 
Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes on the lower rack of the oven.




  1. These sound absolutely great. I'll be certain to follow your blog for more recipes. Like I mentioned in a previous comment, I live in a care facility, but I may move to a different home soon where they cook homemade meals everyday and I was invited to contribute my ideas.

    1. What a positive attitude Astrid. I hope that you do get to move to that new place that you're very happy.

  2. They are beautiful! I bet they smell amazing while baking and taste so good!
