These lovely homemade burger buns will definitely become the talk of your next meal! Whether you serve them with some butter, dip them in olive oil or as part of the perfect burger, this super simple recipe will always deliver amazing results!


  • 570g all-purpose flour (20 ounces)
  • 25g fresh yeast (0.8 ounces)
  • 100ml olive oil (1/3 of a cup and 1 tbsp)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 350380ml lukewarm water (1 1/2 cups)
  • 23 tbsps sesame seeds (optional, but recommended for a lovely nutty crunch)


  1. To prepare these amazingly fluffy homemade burger buns start by adding the flour into a large bowl. Using your hands make a dimple in the middle and add in the salt, sugar and olive oil.
  2. Using your hands, dissolve the yeast into half a cup of lukewarm water and pour into the flour mixture.
  3. Mix and knead all of the dough ingredients by hand, mixer, or bread machine, whilst adding gradually the rest of the lukewarm water, until the dough is soft and smooth. If the dough is too sticky add a little bit more flour.
  4. Cover the dough with a towel and let it rest in a warm place, until it doubles in size for about 1 to 2 hours.
  5. Once risen, gently deflate the dough, divide into 6-7 portions and shape each piece into a round ball. Place the burger buns on a large baking tray lined with baking sheet. Gently push with your hands to flatten them just a little, drizzle with some water and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
  6. Bake the burger buns in a preheated oven at 180C for about 25-30 minutes until golden and crispy on the outside and cooked throughout.

  1. In Canada we don’t used scales to measure we use cups and Tablespoons and teaspoons.. Probably very confusing to those not used to that way of measuring, but on the other hand Grams and such are confusing to us!
    I will use conversion tables to figure out the flour thanks for doing most of the conversions!

    • Serious cooks in Canada know that weighing instead of measuring is more accurate and successful. It’s time to get a scale and see the difference. Also, we’ve been using metric for decades. Let’s not give our European and other friends the notion that we can’t do the math.

      • I have been cooking since I was 6 and trust me that is a good number of years. I like cups and tablespoons, good for you if you like scales and metric, I don’t. Each to her own, but I would put my product up against yours any day. As I said I did the conversions.

    • 1 cup =125 gr

  2. The recipe calls for 1.5 tablespoons of salt. Shouldn’t that be teaspoons?

    I want to know how do you store fresh made bread?

      I personally use a bread tin. You need a container that is not fully airtight as your bread will become soggy but not fully open as it will dry out quickly. You can also use a large bowl, covered with some foil or parchment paper.
