Clabber Girl Baking Powder Hamburger Buns

Categories: Breads

Submitted by: Jolene Ketzenberger

Our hamburger buns are quick and easy to make – no yeast and no rising time. Now, admittedly, the dough is sticky, and things can get a little messy when you scoop it out and plop it on the baking sheet. But just keep a bowl of water handy and wet your fingers before you scoop and shape the dough to make it easier to handle.


  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp. Clabber Girl Baking Powder
  • 1-1 1/2 tsp. salt to taste
  • 3/4 c. buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. Clabber Girl Baking Soda
  • sesame seeds optional


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 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool. Split to serve with hamburgers.

 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.
