French Bread Buns: simple recipe, kid friendly, super delicious and you can enjoy it with anything – soup, jam, butter, by itself – you name it. | olgainthekitchen.com

This simple recipe of French Bread Buns is one of my favorite breads I make at home. Very simple to make, super delicious and you can enjoy it with anything – soup, jam, butter, by itself – you name it. Few months ago I was trying to come up with a recipe of bread that is kids friendly, and it led me here. My 3-yr-old loves this; every time as soon as I take it out, she would eat 3-4 of these buns without anything on a side and these are not that small in size lol … yes these are THAT good 🙂 just a perfect size. I shared a recipe with my sisters too – I think this is becoming another staple recipe in our family. I hope this recipe becomes one of your favorites too :).

French Bread Buns Ingredients:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour (might need less)
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1. Mix 1 1/2 cups warm water (microwave on 30-40 seconds if needed), 1 tbsp active dry yeast and 1 tbsp granulated sugar – set aside for about 10 minutes to rest and rise.

2. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour, 1 tsp salt, 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil and the rested yeast mixture. Stir in remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. Turn out dough onto floured surface and knead until elastic and smooth. Lightly oil large bowl, place dough in and cover with clean cloth; set aside for 1 hour to rise in room temp.

Rolling Bread Buns:

3. Deflate the dough and turn out onto floured surface. Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces. Make round balls. Place onto a baking sheet with parchment paper 2” apart (you don’t need to oil parchment paper). Again, cover with clean cloth and let rise for about 40 minutes at room temperature until doubled. Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden. Keep the French bread buns in a cloth while enjoying these to keep these soft or refrigerate in Ziploc bag when cooled for up to a week. Enjoy!!!

  • A cake is a must on #Easter day! What I love about Chocolate Spartak Cake is that you can bake it this weekend, frost it next Friday and enjoy on Sunday during holiday. This is a 9-layer cake, filled with sour cream frosting, topped with chocolate ganache and decorated with buttercream flowers! I’m getting hungry just writing about it!😋 (For recipe, link in profile 👉@olgainthekitchen ) #olgainthekitchen
