Wholewheat Burger Buns

Burgers are my favorite. That paired with some coke is a blissful Friday night meal for me. This time when we thought of burger night I decided to make it homemade ~ homemade in the sense everything from scratch right from the patty to the burger buns. Well, then because its me and because its homemade, I thought of making it healthy and sneak in some wholewheat flour and then because I am too ambitious I decided to make whole wheat burger buns with just a tad bit of flour. The only thing that I would like to add add here is that flatten the balls to a disc so that the buns dont rise like a big football.

Adapted from KingArthurFlour
Prep time: 15 mins; Bake time: 18 mins; Makes - 4 buns

~*What U Need*~
Water - 3/4 cup
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Sugar - 3/4 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Instant yeast - 1 tsp
Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Vital wheat gluten - 1 tbsp
Bread flour - 1/2 cup

Egg wash - to brush buns before baking
Sesame seeds - to sprinkle

How I Made it:
Sprinkle yeast onto warm water with the sugar. Allow to become frothy for 10 mins. Add the remaining ingredients and form a dough. Knead for 5-10 mins. Allow to rise until doubled for 1 hour. Divide dough into 4 pieces and smoothen each into a ball. Place on parchment lined baking sheet and allow to double again for 45 mins.
Brush with eggs or milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in a 375F preheated oven for 15 - 18 minutes until tops are golden brown.

Serve as desired!!!

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
