Prep Time 20 mins


  • A Stand Mixer is nice but not necessary


  • 4 Cups Flour Either a light wheat like Prairie Gold or half wheat and half white
  • 2 TBS Yeast Active or Instant
  • 1 Cup Milk Warm 105°-115°
  • ¾ Cup Water Warm
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • ½ Cup Oil I use melted butter
  • 3 TBS Honey or sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400. In a small sauce pan, heat the milk water and salt until warm. Melt the butter and mix it with the warm liquids. Add the honey or sugar. Blend together the yeast and 2 cups of the flour in a stand mixer. Gradually add in the wet ingredients alternating between those and the remaining two cups of flour. You can also do this by hand if you do not have a mixer. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. These are lightest and fluffiest when you don't over work the dough. Let rest for 10 minutes.
    Next, shape into rolls or hamburger buns. Place on a greased cookie sheet and let rise for 20-30 minutes. They will double in size. They will also rise quite a bit more while baking. Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes. The hamburger buns may take a bit longer. They should be nice and golden. Brush the tops with butter.
