# About how many burger buns would this brioche recipe give me?

Its ingredients consist of:
1/3 cup very warm water (110-115 degrees)
One 1/4-oz. package (2-1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
2-1/2 cups cake flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2-1/2 teaspoons fleur de sel or fine sea salt
6 large eggs, at room temperature
2-1/2 sticks (10 oz.) unsalted butter, cut into 1" cubes at room temperature

I get 2 loaves (8 1/2-by-4 1/2-by-3-inch) from this recipe but would like to use it for burger buns this time.

1. Well whatever it turns out to be, please let us know so we can plan how many to feed! It sounds so good.

1. I'd guess maybe ten to a dozen. I have an I have a recipe for English muffins that has a cup of starter, two and a half cups of flour, and a cup of water (plus, of course, salt), and it gives me eight muffins.

1. I didn't do the math on the total ingredient weight (you could--pretty easy to google up all the conversions, which, IMO is how bread recipes should all be written anyway), but I'll guess 18 ish based on the size of the loaves you said you make. Depends on how big though, too. I think I usually make mine 2-3oz.

This is what I'd say, too. I just made crescent rolls w/ about these proportions flour/liquid and made 24. They were slightly smaller than hamburger rolls, or how large I'd make hamburger rolls. I get 8-10 rolls for a loaf of bread dough.

Thanks. I wasn't sure how big my buns should be. The weight estimate really helped. I plan to divide half of the dough into 3 ounce portions and the other half as a loaf.
