Homemade Hamburger Buns

The best homemade Hamburger Buns you'll ever have!
Servings 8 buns


  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 tbsp warm milk
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 ½ tbsp honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 ½ cups bread flour
  • 1 ½ tsp salt
  • 2 ½ tbsp butter, softened

Egg Wash for Top

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp water
  • Sesame Seeds for Sprinkling


  • Mix together the warm water, milk, yeast and sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes until you see a foam on the top. If you don't have a foam, do not proceed. This is a crucial part of having fluffy buns.
  • Add in the flour, salt, butter and a beaten egg. Mix until the dough forms. You want the dough to be soft but not sticking to your fingers. If you need to add more flour, sprinkle in a few extra tablespoons at at time.
  • Cover the bowl with a towel and let it sit somewhere warm for around 1-3 hours or until doubled in size.
  • Once the dough has doubled in size, flip it out onto a floured surface. Divide into 8 equal pieces.
  • Shape the dough into balls, gently flattening and tucking the ends underneath.
  • Place the dough balls onto a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper.
  • Cover and let them rest an additional 1 hour or until they're fluffy in appearance.
  • Make the egg wash by beating the egg and water together. Gently brush the top of the buns with the egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. IN the bottom of your oven place a baking sheet or dish. Right before you put your buns in, pour 1/2 a cup of water in the pan to create steam. This will make your buns fluffy and moist.
  • Bake the buns for 15-20 minutes or until they're golden brown on top.
  • Take them out and let them cool slightly before serving.
