Dairy-free Sourdough Brioche Hamburger Buns

Dairy-free Sourdough Brioche Hamburger Buns

Yield: 8


  • 360g Organic Bread Flour
  • 120g Coconut water
  • 120g Active Starter
  • 25g Organic Olive Oil
  • 15g Raw Honey
  • 20g pineapple or mandarin juice
  • 1 Egg + 2 Egg Yolks
  • 8g Salt
  • One Raw Egg, whisked (for eggwash)
  • Sesame Seeds (optional)


  1. Feed your starter the night before.
  2. In the morning, mix dough and ferment for 6 -10 hours on the counter or until the dough becomes puffy (doubles in size). Perform a few sets of stretch and folds periodically if you have time.
  3. Cold Proof: Store covered dough in the fridge for 12 – 36 hours. 
  4. Shape: Lightly flour your work surface, and sprinkle a little bit of flour on top of the dough. Divide the dough into 8 pieces. Pinch the edges to the bottom of each roll, and try to round it tightly. Transfer the shaped rolls to a greased baking pan.
  5. Final RiseCover the rolls and let them proof for 3-4 hours at 70-74 degrees Fahrenheit, or until they double in volume. 
  6. Brush the top of each bun with egg wash. Use optional sesame seeds at this time.
  7. Preheat & BakePreheat the oven to 375F. Bake for about 23-25 minutes until they turn golden brown.
  8. Cover with a cloth right after baking so the tops become soft. 
  9. Let the buns cool for 1 hour before digging in!
