CFCA serves more than 18,000 sponsored children and elderly in Honduras. A CFCA mothers group there, the Faith and Hope mothers group, sells homemade hamburgers to those in their community.
Last week, we posted part 1 of this recipe: Hamburgers and sauce from Honduras.
Here is part 2, the Faith and Hope mothers group recipe for homemade hamburger buns!
(Makes 40 hamburger buns)
- 8 pounds of wheat flour (Any preferred brand)
- 3 1/2 tablespoons of yeast
- 2 2/3 tablespoons of salt
- 2 2/3 tablespoons of sugar
- 3 sticks of melted butter/margarine
- 1 pound of sesame seeds
- 6-7 cups of water
Combine the 8 pounds of wheat flour and the 3 1/2 tablespoons of yeast in a deep mixing bowl.
Next, pour the salt and sugar into one cup of water and mix well.
Pour the water, salt and sugar mix into the wheat flour, and then add the melted butter/margarine. Mix until all ingredients are blended well.
Add 5-6 cups of water and mix the dough until a soft consistency is reached.
Knead the bread dough with a little bit of flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the surface. Once a soft consistency is reached and the dough has been properly kneaded, cut the dough in small rolls.
Next, knead the rolls into a burger bun shape.
Once the pieces of dough are ready, place them on a lightly greased sheet pan.
Allow dough to rise for 20 to 25 minutes in the warmest place of the home (around 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit).
Once the dough has rested, sprinkle the sesame seeds over the dough rolls.
Place the pan inside the oven, preheated to 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Check on the bread frequently to avoid overcooking.
Serve with the hamburger and sauce recipe, and enjoy!
