Baking - Wholewheat Bread Buns

It is Sunday morning and the breadmaker is busy kneading the dough again. Today I decided to make wholewheat bread buns. Again, more work is required baking those, as the breadmaker does only part of the work and I have to knead and shape the dough myself in the final stage.

I was not sure of the result as this was the first time I tried this recipe. Nevertheless, the bread buns turned out very tasty.

Did I tempt you to make them as well?

 Here is the recipe from my breadmaker's booklet:

  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 2 tbsp skimmed milk powder
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 1/4 cups strong wholewheat bread flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp fast action yeast

 Use setting for dough.

 After the dough program is finished, take the dough out of the bread maker and knead it well until the dough isn't sticking to the surface. You can sprinkle a bit of flour on the surface and on the dough throughout the kneading as this will make it easier. Then shape the dough into 6 - 8 rolls. Place on a greased baking tray and brush lightly with melted butter. Cover for 20 - 25 minutes. Allow to rise until they are double in size and glaze. Bake in the oven for approx 15 - 20 minutes at 190 degrees C.

If you would like to add caraway seeds and salt flakes to the buns, use a mix of egg yolk and a little bit of water as a glaze, then sprinkle the buns with caraway seeds and salt before baking.

    1. Sorry, you are a bit late. They did not last very long, all gone in less than an hour. But you can bake some yourself. If you do, I wish you bon appetite.
