More Than a Meal Series
Afridelight buns are soft, dense, and make the perfect hamburger bun! Plus they only take an hour to make start to finish.
- 2 tbsp Dry Active Yeast
- 1 cup & 2 tbsp Warm Water
- 1/3 cup Canola Oil
- 1/4 cup Raw Cane Sugar (unrefined sugar, but you can use normal sugar if you want)
- 1 Egg
- 1 tsp Salt
- 3 1/3 cup Afridelight (Plus 1/2 – 3/4 cups for dusting and kneading)
- Dissolve the yeast in warm water. Add oil and sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes; the mixture will look bubbly.
- Mix in egg, salt, and flour to the yeast mixture. You will form a soft and slightly sticky dough.
- Let dough sit for 5 minutes.
- On a very well floured surface knead the dough until smooth. Continue to add flour as necessary to avoid the dough from sticking to your hands or the surface (you may feel like it is a lot of flour – I use about 1/2 cup). Kneading takes roughly 5 minutes.
- Divide the dough into ten buns – you may need to flour your hands for this. Place on baking sheet with approximately one and a half inches between buns.
- Cover and let rest for 15 minutes. Buns will grow but not double in size. In the meantime, preheat oven to 425°.
- Bake buns for 8-12 minutes, until golden brown.
