Burger Buns – Overnight Variation

Burgerbrötchen The second kind of bread I bake for our BBQ-Party was Burger Buns for the grilled Burger we planed to make.

To tweak my recipe I baked them now a couple of times and are very pleased with the recipe. An important point to archive a fluffy, regular crumb is to knead the dough long enough to ensure that the gluten network is fully developed. The crumb will be very soft and pillowy then. The crust is soft, too, like a perfect burger bun, but the bun has much more substance then the buns you can buy in the supermarket.

The slow and long overnight proofing create a complex aroma and prevent the crust of the buns from cracking open uncontrolled. They gain colour fastly due to the egg and sugar in the dough, so it’s better to keep an eye on them while they are baking.

Burger Buns- Overnight-Variation

yields 14 rolls

Water Roux

  • 150g Water
  • 30g flour Type 550

Dough

  • Water Roux
  • 630g flour Type 550
  • 80g Oil
  • 12g Salt
  • 2g fresh yeast
  • 120g Egg (2 Eggs Size L)
  • 30g sugar
  • 125g Water

For the water roux whisk water and flour until lump free, then heat it up to 65°C (needs about 3 min) while whisking. Fill the water roux in a bowl, cover its surface with cling foil and let it cool down to room temperature.

Knead all ingredients for 5 min at slowest speed, then around 11 min on fast speed until complete gluten development.

Ferment for 2 hours.

Divide into 80g pieces and form to balls. Place the buns on a paper lined baking tray.

Cover and proof overnight (about 10 hours).

Preheat the oven to 220°C at the next morning and bake the rolls for about 14 min with steam (or 190°C convection).

I sent this entry to Yeastspotting, Susans weekly showcase of yeast baked good.

    Kurze Frage: Was kommt denn in den Water roux? Wasser, wie in den Zutaten oder Sahne, wie in der Zubereitung?

    Liest sich sehr interessant. Werde ich auf jeden Fall ausprobieren, wenn mein jetziger Vorrat weg ist. Dürfte nicht mehr allzu lange dauern. War so frei und habe dein Rezept (mit Quellenangabe) übernommen.) Blogroll auch.
