Buns

These tasty buns cook up quickly and are the perfect way to get barbecued chicken or roast beef to your mouth! –Mellyn

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 1/2 cups water — very warm
  • 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
  • 2 cups rolled oats — ground into flour (I do mine in the blender)
  • 3 Tablespoons yeast
  • 4 cups wheat flour — ground from about 3 cups hard white wheat
  • 2 cups flour
  1. Combine honey, salt, oil and water in bread mixer (you can also do this by hand!)
  2. Add oat flour and yeast. Mix well.
  3. While mixer is running, add wheat flour.
  4. Add 1 cup of white flour and check consistency of dough. You want it to gather in a ball and begin to scrape the sides of the bowl . If the dough is still sticking to the bottom or sides of the bowl, add more flour a little at a time. If you go a little overboard with the flour and your dough looks crumbly and floury, try adding a tablespoon or two more of water.
  5. Let mix for about 5 minutes.
  6. Let dough rise for a minimum of 20 minutes or as long as an hour.
  7. Divide into 16 pieces, and shape into buns.
  8. Place them on a cookie sheets, sprayed with oil.
  9. Cover and let rise for 25 minutes (or you can do a quick rise for 15 minutes by putting your pans in the oven, setting the oven to preheat to 200 degrees and setting your timer for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes turn the oven OFF and leave the door shut. This makes a nice warm environment and will shave some time off your rise!)
  10. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
  11. Use for sandwich rolls or buns.
