Homemade hamburger buns with a hint of sweetness, ready to kick off barbecue season!
In a small bowl, combine the water, yeast and sugar. Set aside for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, whisk together the bread flour, whole wheat flour and salt. Set aside.
Pour the yeast mixture into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook. On low-speed, mix together the yeast mixture, canola oil, milk, 1 egg and honey until thoroughly combined. Slowly add the flour mixture and mix until the dough forms a ball. Continue kneading the dough in the mixer, or by hand, for approximately 5 minutes.
Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and cover with a kitchen towel. Allow the dough to rise in a warm location for approximately 2 hours or until it has doubled in size.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Punch down the dough and divide into 8 equal-sized balls. Place the dough balls on the baking sheet and cover with a clean kitchen towel. Let the dough rise in a warm location for 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
Heat the oven to 400ºF.
In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining egg and 2 tablespoons water. Using a pastry brush, lightly cover each bun with the egg wash. Bake the buns for 15-18 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
The buns are best if enjoyed within 3 days. Alternatively, you can wrap them each in plastic wrap and foil to freeze them for up to 6 weeks.
