Burger Buns

Burger Buns by Custom Taste
With our current burger craze we needed something to put the patties in, at least half of the time anyway. So I made these on the fly. The don't have salt in them which I know many bakers will probably be appalled by but since I try not to use oils in my baked goods I turn to baking soda. For me baking soda helps to double the rising process, resulting in fluffier baked goods, as well as help the bread get a nice crunchy brown crust. I consider baking soda an assistance in the kitchen not.
