    Makes: 12 burger buns

    • 250ml warm water
    • 2 tablespoons rapeseed oil
    • 410g bread flour
    • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon vital wheat gluten
    • 2 1/4 teaspoons dried active baking yeast

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:30min proofing  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Place the water, rapeseed oil, flour, sugar, salt, vital wheat gluten and yeast into the tin of a bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer, select the Dough cycle and turn on the machine. Line baking trays with baking parchment.
    2. When the cycle is finished, remove the dough to a lightly oiled work surface and knead for 2 to 3 minutes. Cut the dough into 12 equal-size pieces and roll the dough into balls by cupping your hand, with open fingers, over each piece of dough. Roll gently, with just a little pressure, to form a dough ball with a silky surface. Place the dough balls onto the parchment-lined baking trays and flatten each dough ball gently into a bun. Cover with a cloth and let rise until doubled, 30 to 45 minutes.
    3. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    4. Bake the rolls in the preheated oven until the tops are golden brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool on racks before slicing.

    lovely soft buns and so easy...brushed tops with egg an water and sprinkled with sesame seeds  -  28 May 2017


    This is a good basic bread roll recipe. To make without a bread maker, I put all of the dry ingredients (except the wheat gluten which I didn't use) together into the bowl of a stand mixer (keep the yeast and salt separate) and start off on medium whilst I slowly added the water. Then I crank up the mixer to high and leave it for around 5 -6 minutes. On a lightly floured surface, roll out, divide into 12, shape and place on a baking tray. Bake for 12 minutes at 180c. They are tasty, soft rolls and smell great when just out of the oven.  -  02 Feb 2017
