  • 3 cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast * see note
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds - optional for the top
  • 1 ½ cups water


  • Preheat the oven to 200º F then turn the oven off.
  • In a small bowl, add warm water (no hotter than 110º F), yeast, and sugar. Allow the yeast mixture to sit for 5 minutes until it is frothy.
  • Pour the yeast mixture, eggs, and butter into a standing mixer. Mix on low for 30 seconds.
  • Add the dry ingredients (flour, salt) and turn the mixer on low. Gradually increase the speed until you have formed dough.
  • You only get one rise so you need to shape your burger buns before rising the dough.
  • Place a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Break the dough into 8 pieces.
  • With wet hands, shape each into a ball then press down slightly so they resemble burger bun shapes.
  • Loosely cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap and place the pan into the oven to rise. Rise about 45 minutes, until the buns double in shape.
  • Preheat the oven to 400º F.
  • Remove the buns from the oven and take off the plastic wrap. If you are doing the egg wash, break a small egg in a bowl and scramble it. Use a pastry brush to brush the egg over each dough ball. If you want to use sesame seeds or poppy seeds, sprinkle some on the top of each bun.
  • Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake the burger buns for 20 minutes. They will get golden if you are using the egg wash. Note the actual baking time can vary depending on the size buns you make.
  • Remove when they are finished baking. Allow them to cool on a wire rack. Slice them in half when they are cooled.


  1. I highly recommend using Authentic Foods Steve's GF Bread Blend flour. It is light years ahead of any other gluten free flour blend for making yeast recipes. If you can't use that I recommend Cup4Cup, which is also good. Be sure the flour blend you choose works with yeast recipes! Many like Bob's 1:1 and King Arthur Measure for Measure state on their bag not to use their flour in yeast recipes.
  2. If your blend doesn't contain xanthan or guar gum, add 1 teaspoon.
  3. You can use this buns recipe to make hoagie rolls and hot dog buns too!
  4. Store the buns in an airtight container. If you don't use them by the next day, you will want to freeze them. Be sure to slice them in half before freezing.
