Description

Here’s the problem with most recipes for sandwich (or hamburger) buns. They make too many. Dozens of buns. That’s great if you’re having a party or a family reunion, but what if it’s just ma and pa on the old homestead? Throw in a kid or two if you want and that’s still a lot of buns. Here’s a recipe that makes just enough. By that I mean eight to ten buns, perhaps twelve if you make them fairly small.

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Bread Or All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Instant Yeast
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ¼ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat White Flour (or Additional Bread Or All-purpose Flour)

Preparation

Place 1 cup of the bread flour, sugar, salt and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer. Stir together. Heat milk until very hot, but not boiling. (I usually put it in the microwave for a minute, but your microwave could be different.) With mixer running add milk and then oil into the flour. Add the egg and mix. Add the whole wheat flour and enough of the remaining bread flour until the mixture gathers around the hook. Then knead for about 5 minutes or until smooth. Cover the bowl of dough with a clean towel and allow it to rise until doubled, about an hour. When doubled the dough won’t spring back when a finger is pressed into it.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured counter and divide into 8-12 pieces depending on the size you desire. Form each portion into a ball and flatten on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Cover with a clean towel and allow to double in size, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, towards the end of the rising period, preheat oven to 350 F.

Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve with hamburgers or other sandwich ingredients.

Makes 8-12 sandwich buns.
