Oatmeal Sweet Bread and Hamburger Buns

Cut the Budget, Cut the Budget.  Bake Some Bread.  Cut the Budget.  Those two things go together.  But, it is hard low carbing it as my as I bake these yummy breads for my family.


We can easily go through two packages of hamburger buns in a meal or two so when my friend Sharon shared a recipe to make hamburger buns in 40 – 60 minutes, I knew I had to try it.  Now, these are not like store bought buns, they are so much better.

40 Minute Hamburger Bun Recipe


  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour


  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil and sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the egg, salt and enough flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes. Do not let rise. Divide into 12 pieces; shape each into a ball. Place 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
  • Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Bake at 425° for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 1 dozen.


I double the recipe.  I proof the yeast with about 1/2 a cup of warm water for at least 5 minutes before I add it to the bowl.  I let the Kitchen Aid do all the hard work of kneading the dough.  I make the rolls smaller than store bought, usually.  I let them rest and rise because until I wrote this, I did not realize I should not let them rise after kneading.  bwahaha.  I’ll have to try them by the directions next time.


They make nice substantial buns.  We like these buns toasted with a little butter under the broiler.


Sweet Oatmeal Bread

My friend Kiersten shared this recipe with me.  I don’t have any pictures because I ran out of oatmeal and I have to wait for payday to buy more.  I love this recipe because it is nice dense sweet treat of a bread.

Sweet Oatmeal Bread

for 2 loaves:

1.5 c old fashioned oats
2.5 c warm water
6 c AP flour
3 tsp salt
6 TBsp molasses
3 Tbsp sugar
3 tsp yeast

It’s from a bread machine cook book. I add everything but the flour and mix it in my KA and add the flour until it’s the right consistency.  Raise in a greased bowl until doubled, shape into loaves and put in bread pans, rise another 45 min.  Bake @ 375 for 35-40 min.


This bread does not rise above the pan, but that is OK, it is yummy.  Enjoy. Oh and one more thing, I have use part honey, part molasses and it is yummy.  I have used only honey and it is good too.


Thanks for stopping by and sharing my joy of bread.
