“I found this fantastic hamburger bun recipe on www.cooks.com, tweaked the instructions to make it easier to understand. These buns smell great, taste amazing, and have easy prep in my Kitchen Aid mixer! Waiting for them to rise is the only bummer, but expected with good yeast breads. Keep in mind the buns will rise a bit while cooking, so you don't have to wait for them to be the size you'd like before baking them. Enjoy!”

Directions

  1. Dissolve yeast and lukewarm water in a cup.
  2. Pour the hot water over the whole wheat flour and stir; add dry milk, oil, honey, and salt; stir well. Let cool and then add the yeast mixture; beat with electric beater or place in processor for 3 minutes.
  3. Knead in the remaining white flour to make a soft dough.
  4. Let rise until light and double in bulk (about 30-45 minutes). Punch down and let rise again.
  5. Place on floured table and roll out about 1/2 inch thick. Cut with floured doughnut cutter without the "hole" or a small can the size of a bun. Let rise again and bake at 375 degrees F. 25 minutes. When done, brush the tops with oil or butter. Cut in half, serve warm.
