  • 3 large eggs (slightly beaten)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • In a separate bowl, add all remaining ingredients. Whisk to thoroughly combine.
  • With the mixer on low speed, gradually add dry ingredient mixture to mixer bowl; mix until all dry ingredients are well blended. Beat on medium speed 5 minutes.

Spoon batter into cups/rings; smooth tops (wet finger tips and smooth dough). If desired, score tops of dough with an X using a sharp knife. Cover; allow to rise approximately 30 minutes.

I plan to make these with Platinum Instant Yeast added directly to the dry ingredients. Should I increase the water temperature to 120F-130F? Thank you!

Hi Janet,
The Platinum Yeast is not gluten free.
If you don’t need a gluten-free recipe, I would suggest one of our wheat-based burger bun recipes. Substitute Platinum 1-for-1 with the yeast in these recipes.
If you are gluten-free, use active dry yeast or Quick Rise yeast. You may substitute either yeast 1-for-1, no changes in the recipe needed.
Happy baking!
