Recipe: Sweet wholemeal buns with jamPosted: June 18, 2011
This week’s recipe! It’s actually my own recipe for healthy (well, they contain wholemeal flour so they have to be, right?) (ok, maybe not, but it’s my way of justifying) buns for your sweet-tooth (but you can prepare them using only plain flour if you don’t like wholemeal one). It’s a great snack during the day and I hope you try it :).
Ok, I just realised I only posted the recipes for yeast batches (but they are all so worth posting). I promise the next one will be a different one!
Now let the recipe and photos speak for themselves 🙂
Serves 12 small/medium buns
45ml oil (I used rice oil)
pinch of salt
250g plain flour
250g wholemeal flour
1 egg + 1 tbsp milk stirred
Melt butter in a bowl, add milk and stir. In a large bowl mix both flour, yeast, sugar, salt, and add oil and warm butter with milk. Knead well until you have a smooth, elastic dough. Cover with a towel and let rise until doubled, about 1 – 1.5 hour.
Roll the dough into a 30 x 50cm rectangle. Spread jam over dough. Roll the dough into a log the long way. Using a very sharp knife, slice the log into 12 slices (about 3 – 3.5cm thickness).
Place slices in a baking pan in big gaps. Using knife’s handle press in the middle of each slice. Cover with a towel and let rise for about 15 minutes. Smear stirred egg with milk over them.
Bake in a preheated 200°C oven for about 15 minutes or until golden.
Note: if you use only plain flour (500g) then reduce the amount of liquid (use: 75g butter and 250ml milk, no oil).
