Black burger buns 60 minutes

Simple black burger buns with white sesame seeds ready in under 1 hour! Made with bamboo charcoal powder.

The original recipe I have for Black burger bun-style bread is good and it makes great bread but it takes a LONG time to prepare. There are days when I don't want to wait 3h for my bread to be ready which was the case yesterday when I decided to make these. Devine's sister was coming over for supper and I had a lot of work to do that morning. Didn't want to spend the entire day running between my computer and the kitchen. Making bread doesn't require a lot of active time but id still need to check often and sometimes that's just enough to take all of my focus away.

SO to minimize that I made a quick savoury bread! The same one I made on Valentine's day that had a smoked paprika heart in the center (yes i know so cute. Paprika love). That recipe was based off culinaire amoula's Cumin and paprika savoury bread. I simplified the recipe removing the spices and divided it into 5 buns instead of two large loaves. I recommend trying out her recipe as well it's so good... you can have the bread alone with green tea :).

I don't have a lot of experience with quick breads im experimenting a lot though to see what i can make in less time. Culinaire amoula's recipe helped me a lot didnt think i could get bread that tasted this good so quickly. It makes great burger buns! The bottom stays flat so in the end you're not stuck with this weird 'ball bread' my last burger was like that and it made it hard to have it sit nicely on a plate. No one wants to eat spherical burgers... actually I take it back that sounds cool. Not practical though.

If you're in the mood for black burger buns and need it done quickly then try out this recipe!
