Bun There Done That: Yeast Rolls In 80 Minutes


For the last few months we’ve been completely boycotting store bought breads.

Initially it was more of a challenge (game) just to see if we could do it but it didn’t take long for us to become pretty accustomed to high quality (most of the time!) baked goods. I don’t mean this in the sense that I’ve mastered baking because that’s far (far) from true (really far) but rather in the sense that pretty much anything you manage to get baked (heh, he said ‘get baked’) using fresh ingredients in your home be it in your oven, bread machine or solar heated stone pile is going to be better than the $3 loaf of over chemical saturated dough that you find in the grocery. Its really true, I swear it. Get just about any dough pile together stick it in a hot oven and when it reaches 190 degrees in the center take it out slice it up and you’re going to be ahead of the game. And your house will smell great!

Other than ‘good eats’ the two biggest effects of the ‘boycott’ were 1) I learned to bake a few things I’d never baked before (bagels!) and 2) I learned you had to plan ahead a little. Baking breads is a long process and unless you’ve got 3 or 4 hours before the meal to prepare you need to have your baked goods made ahead of time. So we started planning things a little better and never missed a beat

Until today that is. A big juicy hamburger was on the menu and I had missed two chances in two days to get the buns made. Then today goes awry and I’m two hours away with no buns. However a quick Google search saved the day. This bun recipe is not only delicious its ready in an hour and twenty minutes.

The only difference for me was that I made eight big buns instead of 12. Another tip is that it rises FAST so don’t leave it unattended. Mine were ready in 30 minutes.

Also I used the KW Kitchenaid mixer with paddle attachment to mix. I know you’d think dough hook but I stuck with the recipe and somehow it works.

5 cups all-purpose flour

2 (.25 ounce) packages dry yeast

1 cup milk

3/4 cup water

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon salt


Stir together 2 cups flour and the yeast. In a separate bowl, heat milk, water, oil, sugar and salt to lukewarm in microwave. Add all at once to the flour mixture, and beat until smooth, about 3 minutes.

Mix in enough flour to make a soft dough, 2 to 3 cups. Mix well. Dust a flat surface with flour, turn dough out onto floured surface, and let rest under bowl for about 10 minutes.

Shape dough into 12 slightly flat balls, and place on greased baking sheet to rise until doubled in size.

Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
