Over the weekend I made some homemade chicken soup and some homemade buns for soup and sandwich night. I've posted about the soup here, and I thought it was about time I posted my bun recipe. Using my hand-me-down and awesome bread maker, these buns are so easy to make and a weekly staple in our house. I've also used this bun recipe many times for dinner rolls, making 24 rolls instead of 12 buns.

Home Made Buns (adapted from Sanyo's The Home Bakery Book, 1988)

4 cups all purpose flour
4 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup margarine, softened
2 tbs milk
2 eggs, each added with water to measure 3/4 cups (or use yolk only, if desired)
2 tsp active dry yeast

1. Place ingredients in bread machine pot in order listed. Let stand 5 minutes. Use DOUGH setting and press start. Dough will be complete in 1 hour 15 minutes.


2. Remove dough from bread maker and place in a greased bowl, turning to coat.


3. Let rise 20-30 minutes.


4. Punch down dough and shape into 12 buns. I like to use a scale to get them all about the same size.


5. Let rise 20-30 minutes.


6. Bake at 375°F for 10-13 minutes.


Enjoy as part of a soup and sandwich combo for maximum enjoyment.

  1. Probably not a good idea to be eating those with a dog around. Unless you can resist mooching eyes.

    1. That is why I stick to cats! :) Although the mooching eyes come out for so many things anyway!

  2. Num, num, num.

    I made dinner rolls tonight and chicken soup over the weekend. We are a spooky pair, but it's been that way from the beginning.

  4. Oh the joys of a break maker! Those looks fantastic. I use mine to knead and proof dough all the time. Gotta dust mine off. Thanks for the inspiration!
