BM# 51 — Baking Marathon: Day 8

Bake of the Day: Breads — No Knead Cheese Burger Buns

Today I have the recipe for some delicious burger buns that requires minimal hands-on time thanks to the no-knead method of preparing them. They are soft but sturdy enough to hold a veggie burger and all of its accouterments.


The ingredients are beaten in a mixing bowl for just 2 minutes and after that it is very very easy to make these soft, cheese-scented buns that are perfect for any kind of burger.

I made couple of changes to the recipe: I added some wholewheat flour and then used a soy milk no-egg wash instead of the traditional egg-water wash. Soy milk gives the same nice golden brown crust as egg wash would. Do try these easy to make burger buns – they taste so much better than the store bought ones.

Ingredients
  • cups All purpose flour
  • cups Whole wheat flour (or use 2¾cups of all purpose flour)

  • tsps Yeast Instant
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • ¾ tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Onion powder (optional, but tasty)
  • 4 tbsp Butter Softened
  • 1 Egg - large (I used 1tbsp egg replacer whisked with 3tbsp water)
  • 2/3 ~ ¾ cups water Lukewarm *
Topping:
  • 1 tbsp egg water egg beaten -- For wash
  • 2 tbsps soy milk Egg -- for Vegan Wash
  • Sesame Poppy seeds & - as needed
  • *Use greater amount of liquid in winter or in drier climates and lesser amount in summer or in humid environment.
Servings: buns
Instructions
  1. Combine all the ingredients and beat at speed, using an electric mixer (hand mixer with dough hook should work), for 2 minutes. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover and let it rise for 60~90 minutes, until noticeably puffy.
  2. Gently deflate the dough and divide it into 6 ~8 pieces. Round each piece into a ball and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Gently flatten the buns a little.
  3. Cover the buns and let them rise for 60~90 minutes, until noticeably puffy. Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  4. Brush each bun with the egg wash (or soy milk) and sprinkle with seeds. Bake the buns for about 20 minutes or until they're a light golden brown and the interior temperature is 200°F, measured with a digital thermometer.
  5. Remove the buns from the oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
