I so enjoy making my own bread and buns. What’s better than a fresh, golden-brown bun right out of the oven?! Here is just a quick and simple recipe for some excellent sandwich buns.
Easy Sandwich Buns Printable recipe
- 4 cups (512 g) all-purpose flour (used King Arthur)
- 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup +/- ¼ cup (250 ml) warm water
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- Flour for kneading
In a large bowl combine flour, active dry yeast, sugar and salt. Mix well and start adding water. Quantity of water will depend on the flour.
Add the olive oil at the end and mix for 4-5 minutes. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let the dough rest for about 5 minutes.
Now turn on the mixer for another 5 minutes. The dough will look nice and smooth. Shortly knead it by hand on a flour dusted surface. Shape it into a ball, place it back into the greased bowl, cover and let it rise until double in volume (1 to 1.5 hours).
When double in size, place the dough on your working surface, roll it into a square and cut into square shaped buns. I made bigger buns, so I had 9.
Make sure buns are nicely dusted with flour when you place them onto a baking sheet. Cover them and let rise for another hour.
Heat the oven to 450 F (230 C). Bake the buns for about 12-15 minutes. For extra crunchy buns place a cup of water on the bottom of the oven.

Nice! I like your method for “shaping”–couldn’t be simpler or more effective to get the right shape.
Thanks Sara! In my opinion simple way is almost always the best way! 🙂
I love my breads so much! I can’t wait to give this one a try. I like the shape too!
Thanks so much Donna! These are pretty easy to make and sooo good!
These look they would be great with just butter.

King Arthur’s Flour is the best. And don’t you just love having a dough hook !
Kathleen, I totally agree! 🙂 Hope you are doing well!
I really like the square shape of these buns and the color of the crust is making me hungry 🙂
Nothing beats fresh homemade bread!
Yes, got to love fresh homemade bread! 🙂
Oh, these do look excellent.. and I love their square shape!!
Thanks Barb! They were gone pretty quickly, kids loved them for their sandwiches.
Oh my goodness, you’re really on a bread roll! (wink, wink) Horribly pun aside, these look absolutely fabulous! Makes me really miss the real thing…gluten free is fine but, oh just for a day, how I would love to indulge in all things wheat!
Oh, thank you friend! 🙂 I understand how you feel… I love bread too, but I do have to be careful not to go over board because gluten doesn’t agree with me completely…
I wish I could be talented and cook like that! 🙂
Thanks so much! Where there is a wish, there is a way! 🙂 Thanks for visiting!
