Yeast-free Hamburger Buns with an option to bake in a pan.
These buns are very easy to make – no need to add yeast! The first time I made these hamburger buns, I was really in a hurry, so I mixed up my flour mix and self-made vegan soy-buttermilk, along with some water and baking powder and put my formed buns into a preheated pan. Honestly, I thought they would turn out horrible, just like nearly everything I do when rushing through something – but luckily I was sooo wrong. They turned out really fluffy and soft and just not what I was used to from gluten-free buns. On my second try, I baked them in the oven, and they were really good too. However, in my old oven they were not as soft and fluffy as the pan-baked buns. My new oven works a bit better. So you might try both versions and compare the results.
These buns are perfect for any vegan burgers (e.g. see my recipe for Kidney Bean Burgers), but you may also use them in a more sandwich-like manner to hold some other kind of vegan “meat” or vegetables of your choice (tomatoes, avocados, a slice of tofu, etc.). Or just use them as dinner rolls.
