White Hamburger Breads

A couple of months ago I posted my take on completely homemade hamburgers, where I baked the breads and minced/seasoned the meat myself. It was a lot of fun, and although I don’t always bother mincing my own meat, I do make my own breads every time now. This last time I decided to try out another recipe, and went with the classic white buns with sesame seeds on top.



They turned out truly delicious! Of course they might not be as “healthy” as the other ones, but I don’t believe the difference is that large.


Makes 4 breads

2.5 dl flour

1/2 tsp dry yeast

2 1/2 dl warm water

1.5 tbsp oil (I used sunflower oil)

1/4 tsp salt

2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional)



1) Mix the yeast, warm water and oil together in a bowl or cup. Leave it to rest for a 5-10 minutes.


2) Mix salt and flour together in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the yeast/oil/water-mixture and use the dough hook to mix the dough for 5-10 minutes on high speed. Mine was still a bit too sticky, so I added another 1/2 dl of flour. Take the dough out on the bench and knead it some before you shape it into a round ball.


3) Cover a glass bowl in oil and place the dough into it. Cover the dough also in oil.


4) Let it rise for 30-40 minutes.


5) Knead some more, using flour or oil. Divide into four parts. Shape them like balls, then flatten them with your hand. Let rise for another 15-20 minutes.


6) Brush each bun with a bit of water, then sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.


7) Bake in the oven at 200°C for 12-15 minutes, or until they’re golden and make a hollow sound when you knock on the bottom of them with your nail. Let cool for 10 minutes on a rist.


Cut them in half, add whatever goods you want inside, and enjoy!



Have a nice weekend!
