Here is the link to the recipe

it was a good recipe to follow for a beginner, the only thing different I did was reduce the sugar to 2 tbls . I used a mixer for the dough and gave the dough a good 8 minute kneading. I got 12 buns from the mix at a nice size. They cooked in  12 mins. The buns were lovely and soft and tasted great. I would use this recipe again...

As soon as I saw the buns I said, "That looks like the 'Beautiful Burger Buns" recipe from KAF.  With 700 or so positive comments, I decided to give it a try about a month ago.

I make them every time we cook burgers on the grill now. 

I also reduced the sugar, by half.  I make 8 buns from the recipe.  I use olive oil instead of butter, but the same amount by weight.

I've made with with AP and bread flour with no discernible difference.

I have carpal tunnel syndrom and use the stretch and fold method almost exclusively for all of my bread baking, this recipe included.

Yes I thought it was an easy to follow recipe and it worked great. I did the 12 buns and glad I did wasn't sure how big they would be but worked out great. I will definitely hang on to this recipe. Your C.T syndrome must be a real problem for your bread making, but wondered why you don't knead in a mixer, don't think I would ever get my dough smooth other wise.

I have a wonderful Magic Mill that does much of the heavy lifting for me when I'm at home.  I'm at the cottage and, alas, no Magic Mill.

However, I have found that the stretch and fold method works for me.  I made my buns with the S&F.

I'll be making them again this weekend!
