Have you been craving some warm, delicious buns straight out of the oven? Our simple yet mouthwatering homemade bun recipe is sure to hit the spot, and it is easy peasy, spelt bun squeezy.
3 C warm water
1/2 C sugar
6 Tbsp oil
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp instant yeast
2 beaten eggs
3 cups whole grain spelt flour
Combine together until well blended.
Add 4-6 C sifted hard white wheat flour - just enough to make a soft dough. Knead 5-8 minutes to encourage gluten formation. The dough should not be sticky but elastic and smooth to touch.
Bake buns uncovered for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool on a cooling rack.
Try stuffing these buns with ham and cheese, pepperoni and pizza sauce, or spinach and feta for a fun lunch idea. When shaping the dough into buns, simply spread out each piece of dough and place 2 TBSP of whatever mixture you choose into the center, folding the dough back up around the filling and pinching it together to hold its form. Place the pinched side down to be the bottom of the bun, and let rise as per the recipe. Allow an extra 10-20 minutes longer baking time as needed.
