Easy and Quick Homemade Buns

I’ve been using this recipe for some time now. It’s super easy and comes together quick! I usually double the recipe, because the boys eat these up rather quickly around here so feel free to double the recipe as well if you have ravenous teenagers at your place too! You can sub out the white flour for whole wheat if you like.

– 1 envelope of instant yeast
– 1 1/4 cup warm water
– 1/3 cup oil (I used olive oil)
– 1/4 cup sugar (you could sub honey, just reduce the amount by a little)
– 1 egg
– 1 tsp salt
– 3 – 3 1/2 cups flour

In a bowl or electric mixer (fitted with dough attachment) combine warm water, yeast, oil and sugar.  Let sit for about 5 mins to let the yeast do it’s thing.  Add in egg, salt and gradually add in the flour until the dough comes together (start with about 3 cups flour and add more if necessary). The dough is good when it just comes away from the sides of the mixer. Try to leave it as sticky as possible. Turn out on a lightly floured surface and knead for a few minutes.  Set it in a greased bowl and cover and let it rise in a warm draft free place until it doubles in size.


Once doubled. Remove the dough and shape into buns and place on a oiled baking tray. Cover and let rise again until roughly doubled in size.

When ready,  bake in a pre-heated oven at 425F for about 10-12 mins until brown on top. You’ll know they are done if you tap them lightly and they sound hollow inside.
