Number of Servings: 15


    5 cups (+) whole wheat flour
    1 1/2 cups warm water
    2 pkgs yeast
    2 T. honey
    1/4 cup water
    1/2 cup milk
    2 T. butter
    2 t. sea salt


In a large mixing bowl, stir together 3 cups of whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cups warm water. Set aside to let rest for 30 minutes. In the meantime, mix together 1/4 cup water, yeast and honey. Allow this to sit for at least 10 minutes to activate the yeast.
Melt butter, milk and salt in a small saucepan on the stove. Do not allow the mixture to get above 120 degrees.
Pour yeast mixture and milk mixture into flour mixture. Add remaining two cups of flour (more if needed).
Knead for about 10 minutes until dough begins to look “shiny”. Put dough back into the bowl, cover and let rise for at least an hour…or until it has doubled.
Pull dough onto a clean countertop and knead for a couple of minutes to get any air bubbles out. Roll dough on a lightly floured surface until about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut circles from the dough with a large drinking glass or wide mouth jar. Place circles on in a well buttered baking dish about an inch apart.
Allow to rise for about 30 minutes. Bake for 20-25 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Makes about 15 buns.

    These turned out so well! My dough got a bit too wet so I ended up with 25 buns. They were very tasty. Everyone enjoyed them. This is a keeper for sure! - 2/3/13

    These were great! I did modify a bit. I added 1/4 cup spelt flour and 1/2 cup oat flour. I used half for dinner rolls and half for buns. - 1/20/13

    These hamburger buns were amazing! I'm definitely going to be making this one again and again. First recipe that actually ends up with the number they say you'll end up with. I cooked for the whole 25 minutes. I did have to use half white flour/half whole wheat due to lack of enough ww flour. - 7/16/12
