Flavor and Texture – simplicity without compromising on taste

Flavor and textureare the major things that are really important to me when it comes to bread. I know bread making can be a little time consuming, and I’m not a fan of bland bread that tastes like cardboard or bread with terrible hard textures. That is why I always look for ways to create bread recipes in a much easier and more straightforward way without sacrificingtaste or texture.

These buns are perfect for sandwiches and hot dogs and can be enjoyed as breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and they are great for BBQ Cookouts, Family reunions, tailgating, Birthdays, Holidays, parties, and more! Unlike most store-bought buns, these buns have no high-fructose corn syrup and no artificial colors or flavors.

Easy Hot Dog Buns Recipe

If you want to make a batch of hot dog buns as quickly as possible without sacrificing results, this is the right recipe for you.

In order to achieve a perfect result, I suggest you use bread flour because of its higher gluten content when compared to all-purpose flour. Bread flour will yield a high-rise bun that is soft and springy in texture.

Although all-purpose flour produces great results on the first day, I must admit that I have a personal preference for the texture of buns made with bread flour on the second and third days. The difference is subtle but definitely noticeable in terms of overall satisfaction.

Step by step instructions to make tasty, soft, and fluffy Hot Dog Buns.

All you need is just six everyday ingredients and some simple instructions, and you will be rewarded with a batch of freshly baked hot dog buns.

Step 1: Proof the yeast

If you don’t have instant yeast, you can use an equal amount of active dry yeast. Just add it along with the other ingredients, there’s no need to proof.

Step 2: Combine the dry ingredients, mix, and leave to rest

Leaving the dough to rest at this stage is very important. This will give the flour a bit of time to absorb the liquid, and it makes the dough much easier to work with.

Step 3: Knead the dough and leave to rest a second time

Knead the dough or about 3 to 4 minutes. That’s fine! don’t sweat it!!

The dough will still be a little sticky at this point don’t be tempted to add more flour; otherwise, the resulting buns will be dense.

Step 4: Shape the dough, rest the dough, and bake:

Cut the dough into eight pieces and shape into about 6 inches long. Brush with the egg wash. Leave to rest for 15 more minutes and bake.

  • Mix the yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar, and warm milk and leave to proof—about 5 minutes.

  • Combine two and a half cups of flour, the remaining sugar, and salt. Mix well.

  • Add the proofed yeast, one egg, and melted butter, and use a sturdy spoon to mix until everything comes together in a rough, shaggy mass of dough.

  • Cover with a plastic wrap or a tight-fitting lid and leave to rest for five minutes.

  • Remove the lid, turn the dough to a lightly floured work surface and knead, gradually adding the leftover quarter cup of flour – your dough will still be soft, but don’t be tempted to add more flour.

  • Return the dough to the bowl and grease the surface with a bit of oil or melted butter, cover with a plastic wrap or a tight-fitting lid, and leave to rest for 30 minutes.

  • Punch down the dough to remove any trapped air and transfer it back to a lightly floured work surface.

  • Divide the dough into eight pieces, roll each out about 6 inches long, and pinch down the sides and ends.

  • Place the buns, seam-side down, on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

  • Make the egg wash by whisking one egg, then brush the buns with the egg wash.

  • Cover the loaves and leave them to rise for 15minutes. They should become nicely puffy.

  • Place in a 350F preheated oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.


  • Measure the flour by gently scooping it into a cup, then use the dull side of a table knife to sweep off the excess.
