Cynthia Barcomi's burger buns – and a small giveaway

Have a nice first Advent everyone!
Today we go to America, in the world of burgers. I love burgers, but rarely do themselves which home. The few times I have the buns – I confess the – always bought ready-made. Although they were never perfect, I could not believe it even bake me what. Bread and buns are still new territory for me.

There you can read about how much I love this book – and I tell an already ahead: At the end of this paper, this book will again be the focus 😉 So far me every recipe from Cynthia Barcomi is super successful, which is why I am addressing the matter this time of good cheer:
