Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and baking soda.

  • Add buttermilk and eggs and beat on low speed 30 seconds until combined, then beat 1 minute on high speed. Dough will be sticky and will have the appearance of frosting.

  • With wet hands, scoop out 6 to 8 even portions of dough and place them on prepared baking sheet, mounding the dough slightly into a bun shape.

  • Re-wet fingers and smooth the tops and sides of each bun. If desired, sprinkle with sesame seeds.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Allow to cool. Slice buns lengthwise. Serve with burgers, chicken, fish, veggies or whatever you like!

Cook's Note:

The dough is sticky, so do keep a bowl of water handy to wet your hands before scooping out the dough for each bun and smoothing out the tops.
