Seeded Burger Buns

I’m sure you know by now that I LOVE homemade bread. The best part of making your own baked goods is that you can adapt it however you want and that meant seeds on my burger buns! I’ve always had problems with the seeds falling off after I baked the bread but I’ve used a super magic trick that will prevent that (it’s in the instructions).

I’ve made 8 burger buns, you can make larger ones or smaller ones – whatever you like!

Here I’m applying the super secret ingredient to make the seeds stick to the bread after baking (spoiler alert: it’s not glue).

If you use a more shallow dish it won’t be that difficult taking out the dough again.

I love seeds, so I added black & white sesame seeds and poppy seeds. You can sub them with your favorite seeds or leave them out completely.

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups lukewarm water


  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon water
  • 2 teaspoons black sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons white sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds


  • For the dough you have different options: You can let a bread baking machine or a kitchen machine knead the dough for you or you can mix all the ingredients for the dough and knead it by hand until a soft dough comes together.
  • Let it sit, covered under a clean kitchen towel, until it doubles in size (about 1-2 hours).
  • Preheat the oven to 250 °C or 482 °F.
  • Cut the dough in eight equal pieces and form the burger buns.
  • Mix all the seeds in a shallow plate.
  • Mix the cornstarch with 1/2 teaspoon of water until smooth and brush it onto the buns.
  • Place the buns with the brushed side down in the seeds and put them back on the baking sheet.
  • Carve the surface of the dough lightly with a knife.
  • Then put the burger buns in the oven and bake them for about 15 minutes. They surface should have a bit of color.


Homemade bread is always best on the same day, I usually slice it in half and toast it on the inside whenever I it use the day after.
