The King Arthur Flour Giveaway is almost at an end (Sunday, Nov. 18, is the last day to enter). And I’m so excited so many of you have chosen to enter to win these beautiful prize packs. Today I’m sharing my recipe for the Fall picnic prize pack, complete with the absolutely awesome Hamburger Bun/Mini Pie Pan from King Arthur Flour, made by USA Pan. You know how I love USA Pan. And, of course, King Arthur flour seems to just make baking so much simpler.
So, today, I’m crafting, for our fall picnic, some beautiful homemade hamburger buns. I’ve tried hamburger buns before, but ahem, it wasn’t my finest hour. They mostly became breadcrumbs as they ended up more pucks than buns. So I’m super excited to try out this recipe from a bread machine cookbook I picked up at a thrift store recently. And to be able to bake them in this beautiful bun pan? That has to make them so much more lovely, right? I can’t wait to get the hot dog bun pan, too.
Wow. Definitely the most impressive burger buns I’ve ever made. So light and fluffy and absolutely delicious! I love the pan, and, of course, the flour. Fantastic.
