Sourdough Burger Buns

May 12, 2020

These are EPIC.

For a non sourdough recipe, be patient with me. Will post one soon. If you want to venture into sourdough baking, try getting yourself started with a starter. It’s worth it.

Sourdough Burger Buns

King Arthur Flour
Prep Time 30 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Resting Time 8 hrs
Total Time 8 hrs 55 mins
Course Bread
Servings 6 buns


  • 170 g Ripe sourdough starter
  • 170 g Warm water
  • 295 g Strong bread flour
  • 14 g Powder milk
  • 1.5 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 57 g Softened butter
  • 1 Egg yolk beaten with 1 tsp water
  • Sesame seeds or any topping


  • In a stand mixer combine the starter, butter, water, flour, milk, salt, and sugar
  • With the paddle attachment, mix for 3 minutes
  • Replace with hook attachment and mix for 10-15 mins or do the windowpane test (when you stretch the dough, it doesn't break and becomes see thru)
  • Cover the dough and let it rise in the oven with the light on for around 4 hours. Do a couple of stretches and folds every 2 hours.
  • On a lightly floured surface, turn the dough and shape into 6 balls (each 120g approx)
  • Place the balls onto a lightly greased parchment paper and let them rise for another 4hrs, i let them rise for 2hrs and then left them overnight in the fridge
  • Preheat the oven to 190C, remove the buns from fridge. Brush with the egg yolk mix and add your toppings if any
  • Bake them for 20-25 mins, until they're golden brown and if you have a thermometer it should read 88C from the middle of the bun
  • You can store them in a tupperware or freeze them
