Hamburgers with pathetic homemade hamburger buns

100_5421So far this doesn’t look too bad, but the buns didn’t rise. I think I put too much flour. Not really sure what happened. They still tasted good, just didn’t look right.

100_5425Here they look a little better. Usually when I make these they are about double the size in height. Boo-hoo:(

100_5427 editThe end result doesn’t look too bad. I like the taste of sweet and spicy, so I put raw sweet potato and jalapenos. Along with onions, lettuce, mayo and health food store ketchup. No high-fructose corn syrup for me, bleck! That is pretty much the evil of all evils.

If you are not a sweet potato fan–become one. They are SUPER GOOD raw! Crunchy and sweet. I took some for lunch when I went with my daughter to her field trip the other day. I gave some to a few of the other kids, and they all really liked them. So if you think you don’t like sweet potatoes try them a different way. RAW!

Homemade Hamburger Buns


¼ cup warm water

2 tbsp instant yeast

3 tbsp raw honey

¼ cup melted butter

2 cups raw milk

6-7 cups fresh-ground whole wheat flour

2 tsp sea salt


            Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and honey for about 5 minutes. Stir in the butter and the milk. Add 2 cups fresh-ground whole wheat flour and the salt, and mix until well blended. Mix in enough flour to form a soft dough. Knead until smooth, or for about 5 minutes.

Place in a greased bowl and allow the dough to rise for 1 hour. Punch down the dough, form it into balls (golf ball size is good) place on a baking sheet, and flatten them out with your hand. Cover and allow them to rise until double.

Bake in a pre-heated 375°F oven for 10 minutes. Makes about 16 buns.
