Homemade Hamburger Buns

10 servings


20 minutes

2 hours 5 minutes

total time


250 ml whole milk

15 g granulated sugar

8 g active dry yeast

500 g all-purpose flour

1 large egg

pinch of sea salt

60 ml avocado oil

1 Tbsp whole milk

1 Tbsp sesame seeds (black or white) (optional)


In a bowl, add the warmed milk, granulated sugar and yeast. Give it a stir and let the yeast activate.

To a stand mixer bowl fitted with a dough hook attachment, add the flour, egg, salt, and oil. Add the activated yeast mixture and knead until the dough becomes smooth and shiny, about 5-8 minutes.

Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl and cover with a tea towel.

Let the dough rise in a warm location until doubled in size, about 1-1.5 hours, depending on how warm it is.

Once risen, deflate the dough and divide into 10 equal balls.

Shape into a round ball with your hand and place each dough ball on a parchment-lined baking sheet, allowing a few inches in between.

Press the dough down firmly to flatten and cover with a tea towel.

Preheat the oven to 350°F/177°C.

Once the dough balls have risen and are slightly puffy, lightly brush the tops with milk.

Add toppings such as sesame seeds (if you wish).

Bake at 350°F/177°C for 15-17 minutes, until lightly golden.

Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack.

Let the buns cool before slicing in half.
