Make the dough into any shape sandwich buns you prefer.

Prep time:
Cook time:


  • 2 cups sourdough starter
  • scant tbs. yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm milk (105-115 F)
  • 2 tbs. melted butter
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 tbs. honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose or bread flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • toppings: poppy seeds, sesame seeds, oatmeal flakes


  1. Proof yeast in warm milk and honey.
  2. Add rest of the ingredients and combine well.
  3. Turn out onto a floured surface.
  4. Knead 5-7 minutes.
  5. The dough will be wet. If you want soft buns, resist the temptation to add much more flour.
  6. Place in a bowl, pour on oil, spread,and let rise until doubled, about an hour.
  7. Punch down, form into the shape of the buns you prefer.
  8. Place on parchment paper sprinkled with corn meal. Sprinkle on toppings.
  9. Let rise 30-40 minutes.
  10. (Note that this dough will puff up in the oven, but not so much when going through the 2 rises. I thought it might have to be tossed out, but the buns turned out a great height, wonderfully tasty, and soft. With this recipe, I have made 12 hamburger buns, and 16 hot dog buns.)
  11. Heat oven to 375 F.
  12. Bake buns for 17-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
