My kid are at specials right now, and so I thought I’d say hello!
I’m glad everyone supports no frosting brownies.
Know who doesn’t? Betty Crocker
Yeah. No thanks Betty.
Since I’m at school I am lacking in the pictures… But I do have the hamburger bun recipe!
Whole Wheat Buns
- 1 C warm milk (i microwave for a little bit till it’s warm to the touch)
- 2 T butter, melted (I just put mine into the milk to melt it)
- 1 package yeast
- 2 T sugar
- 1 t salt
- 1 egg
- 3+ c whole wheat flour (you can also use a mix of white and wheat)
Mix together milk, butter, yeast, and sugar and let sit for about 10 minutes. Add in egg, salt, and then flour 1 c at a time. Knead well.
Let sit covered in an oiled bowl until doubled, about an hour.
Punch down dough, then cut into 6 (for larger burger sized buns) to 8 (for smaller ones-I liked those for pulled pork) equal pieces. Shape into balls, place on cookie sheet, then flatten with your hand (so that they look like a bun!). Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 375.
Bake until they look done, about 15 minutes. Be careful not to overcook-you want soft rolls, not crunchy!
When rolls are done, take out of oven and brush top with butter if desired. Cover with a towel while they cool-this forces the moisture to stay in, giving you softer buns.
Hope you’re having a great day! I’ve got 20 minutes till I get my small people from library.
What was your favorite special as a kid? I loved art.
