    Whole Wheat Burger Buns

    We all like burgers, or should I say that we all like to eat junk food.Commercially, people use all-purpose flour to make buns.What if, if we make whole wheat burger buns and use them for our burgers? Isn’t it better to ask children to eat burgers instead of asking them to avoid it. My whole wheat burger buns give me the capability of saying yes to as many burgers as my child wants to eat. And I will never have the guilt of allowing him to eat junk food. Not just him, I can also now have a guilt free bite.

    So a homemade whole wheat burger bun will always sounds healthier. Isn’t it?

    Burgers – Americans or Germans

    I was always confused if the burger is an American cuisine or a German cuisine. Went through a lot of posts and wiki and finally concluded that Hamburger was first made in Germany, as far as the written evidence is available. However, the cheese burger was invented in America.

    Homemade Whole Wheat Burger Buns recipe

    Making a whole wheat bun isn’t a mammoth task. The shaping of the dough maybe a little trickier for a few. If you pick the shaping process properly, the burgers will come out to be smooth otherwise they could be rough on top. The wheat buns are going to be heavier than a regular commercial bun for the obvious reasons of wheat flour being heavier than all-purpose flour. If you have tried my whole wheat muffins or whole wheat bread, you know what I mean. If you follow this recipe step by step you will be excited to see shiny crust and soft crumbs of your whole wheat buns.

    1. I made buns in kadai on medium high flame inspite if applying milk after full baking colour did not turn brown from top what to do?
      Texture was amazing my family is loving WWF buns.
      Thanks

      • Hi Komal,

        When we bake bread/bun in Oven then we get heat from all the sides that help to get color on bread. You mentioned you baked these buns in kadai, that could be a reason for not getting clour.

        Happy Baking

    2. hi Sonia,I really love your baking style.
      I had made this burger of yours by doubling the quantity but the buns were kind of breaking after the baking when i tried to cut. I tried cutting only when it cooled down but still that happened. Could tel me the reason why? wait for the reply.
      thanks so much

      • Hi Shanu,

        I am not sure if I understand your question properly. However,
        If you mean that when you slice the burger bun it has dry crumbs, then thats the problem of liquid content in your dough. You need to add more water while kneading.
        If you mean that your burger bun is just breaking when you hold them, then its the problem of shaping.

        Regards
        Sonia

      • Hi Ashu, Though Gloripan is famous for its Instant yeast, but that does not mean they do not manufacture active dry yeast or any other type of yeast. It is advisable to refer to the box and check what is written there.

        Sonia

      • Hi Amishi,

        In the recipe I have used 10gm of Fresh Yeast. If you are using Active Dry Yeast you should use 5gm and if it is Instant Yeast use only 3gm of it.

        Hope this helps.

        -Sonia
