The ingredients of hamburger bread
Hamburger bread can also be made easily at home. Usually it is milk or butter sandwiches, which allow the dough to remain soft even after baking. The ingredients are sugar, brewer's yeast, salt and strong flour.
The importance of strong flour
Each dough requires a specific flour because each flour has its strength. In the case of hamburgers the strong one is preferable because, being rich in glutenabsorbs more liquids and retains more carbon dioxide. In addition, the dough obtained from a strong flour will be more elastic, tenacious and particularly resistant to leavening thanks to the firmer glutinic network.
What can you add?
Bread for your hamburger can also be flavored with spices, fresh herbs, grated cheese or vegetable puree. Alternatively, once the bread has risen, you can brush it with very little milk or beaten egg to make the surface more colorful and decorate it with poppy seeds, pumpkin, sesame or chia.
