40-Minute Hamburger Buns


Had been sick the whole day yesterday. Down with headache! It was quite hot yesterday and I think it is a bit too much for my head. If only I have the gadget that Uncle Fester of Addam's Family has, it would be such a great help!

At times, when the throbbing is unbearable, this silly idea came into my mind. I would unscrew my head, scrape off all the headaches that are stuck to the skull, wash it clean and shine, wipe it dry and then only will I screw it back to it's place. Niceeee and clean... headache free! Hahahaha... dah macam hantu penanggal pulak bunyinya kan...ahahahaha... Who else have this kind of idea in their minds, leave a comment after this post... thank you... hahaha.... dah sengal dah ni.....mmm abaikan je, tak yah layan mama ni....


Syahmi had to stay back in school after the second paper yesterday. Before dropping him off to school in the morning, I had asked him what he wanted for lunch. He said he wanted just burger and not rice. And I said ok. When I got home, oh oh... I just remembered that there is no burger buns at home. Huwaaa.... I doubt the shops infront of my house have burger buns and to drive all the way to the shop that sells, my headache is not allowing me to do so. Best solution I could think of is to bake my own burger buns. And yes... after a while, not baking bread, yesterday I made these lovely burger buns. Thank you to Taste of Home for sharing the recipe with us. It doesn't take long to prepare these buns. I made half the recipe and managed to get 5.

Prep: 20 min. + resting
Bake: 10 min.
Yield: 10 Servings

Ingredients :

2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water (110° to 115°) I used less water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt
3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
sesame seeds
a bit of milk powder mixed with a bit of warm water - for glazing

Method :

1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil and sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the egg, salt and enough flour to form a soft dough.
2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes. Do not let rise.
3. Divide into 10 pieces; shape each into a ball and give a little pat on top to flatten it slightly. Sprinkle some sesame seed. Place 3 inches apart on greased baking sheets.
4. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Brush with the milk mixture.
5. Bake at 425° for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown.
6. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

Have a nice day!


  1. salam sis, nampak mcm senang , agaknya mak teh bole ka manage this...
    penanggal yg come lote cam you x pa sis...hihi

    I pun selalu sakit kepala yg teramat sgt..rasa mcm nak tukar je kepala ni.kekadang cam nak korek biji mata ni.mcm2 petua dah cuba, ubat jugak yg mujarab...

    1. Waalaikumussalam Mak Teh dearie...

      Memanglah senang kalau ada mixer. Hehehe.. kalau sendiri nak uli, kensalam la... In Sha ALLAH sis boleh je... tak cuba tak tahu... *wink*

      Penanggal, be it comel ke eerie ke...tetappp menyeramkan.. imagine just the head swaying to and fro.. ya ampun.. tak sanggup!

      I selalunya, kalau tak mau telan ubat pun, i will take suppliments. Then tepek Kool Fever kat forhead and if tak mau tidur, I akan urut in between antara jari telunjuk dan ibu jari sambil recite an ayyat. Kalau still degil tak mau hilang, then I will torture the headache by doing chores after chores sampai i terlupa kat headache tu... hahahaha... and normally the last option works well!

  2. Mama, hope u're better now :)
    The buns look good. And 40 minutes is fast for bread making!
    I notice u used ap flour instead of bread flour
    Do u think it can be kept overnight and still stay soft? TQ

    1. Alice dear,

      Yeah, after I ignored Miss Headache and carry on with my house chores, finally she left me! Hahaha....

      After a day, the buns are not that soft but not that hard either. To make it soft, you can either steam it for a while or just pop it in the microwave. :)

  3. wah cantik!nanti boleh tiru resipi mama ni hehe...

    1. Tiru??? Make sure pemeriksa tak tangkap ye... ahahaha...
