Resting time 1 hour 40 minutes
Servings 8 buns


  • 280 ml plant milk (lukewarm)
  • 75 g vegan margarine (as warm as room temperature)
  • approx. 500 g flour
  • 21 g fresh yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 10 g salt

for brushing and sprinkling

  • vegetable milk (room warm or lukewarm)
  • sesame


  • Dissolve sugar and fresh yeast in lukewarm vegetable milk.
  • Mix flour with salt, add the yeast mixture and knead it into a firm dough.
  • Add soft margarine cut into pieces and knead it into the dough. Then knead the dough for about 10 minutes so that it becomes elastic, cover it with a towel and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  • Knead the dough briefly, divide it into 8 equal pieces and form a ball from each piece. Spread the dough balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spacing them sufficiently apart, and flatten each ball with your hands into a round patty about 1.5 inches thick. Cover the round patties with a towel and let them rise in a warm place for 40 minutes.
  • Place a heatproof container filled with a small amount of water (about 1/2 small cup) on the bottom of the oven and preheat the oven to 220 °C top and bottom heat. Spread the burger buns very carefully with room-warm or lukewarm vegetable milk, sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Take the hamburger buns out of the oven, cover them on the baking sheet with a dry towel and let them cool.


  • Soy milk is best for the burger bun recipe. Alternatively, any other plant milk will work.
  • Instead of fresh yeast you can use dry yeast. You need 7 g of it for the recipe.
  • Light wheat or spelt flour is best for hamburger buns. It makes them really soft.
  • The amount of flour given in the recipe may vary. Therefore, it is best to use a little less flour at first and add some more as needed to achieve the right consistency of the dough. The dough must be firm, but not dry and not mushy.
  • It is important to knead the yeast dough for about 10 minutes.
  • Be sure to let the yeast dough rise in a warm place.
  • Before baking, very carefully and lightly brush the burger buns with room-warm or lukewarm vegetable milk to prevent them from collapsing.
  • To make the hamburger buns really soft and fluffy, bake them briefly in a preheated oven at high temperatures with sufficient humidity.
