Whole Spelt Grain Buns

Whole spelt grain is like wheat but more nutritious.   It tastes great.   They are very spongy and cant believe that it is made from whole grain.  This dough should not be kneaded for long.  I use bread machine to make the dough.




What you need?

whole grain spelt flour-3 cups - 3 Tbsp
warm water - 1/4 cup + 3/4 cup
vital wheat gluten - 3 Tbsp
salt - 1.5 tsp
yeast - 2.5 tsp
Sugar - 2 Tbsp
Oil-2 Tbsp

sesame seeds -2 Tbsp
or pumpkin seeds - 2 Tbsp

ajwain -2 tsp


How to do?
1. Activate yeast in 1/4 cup of warm water.

2. Take vital wheate gluten in the cup and then spoon the spelt flour. slice the excess flour with knife.  It is very important to measure the flour properly.  It shuold not be packed. 

3. Make the dough in your bread machine in dough cycle (i take it off in 15 mins).  It should not be kneaded for long.

4 Let it rise for about an hour.

5. Make a log and then cut them into 12 pieces.  Roll each piece and fold them underneath so that the ball does not open  on the top. 

6.  Grease the 9'11'' pan with oil and flour it.   Keep the 3 * 4 rolls and let it rise again for 45 mins to an hr.

7.Preheat oven to 350 F and bake the rolls for 24-26 mins.  chk before 2 mins since it would depend on your oven.

8. Bottom should be browned.

9. Brush the bungs with oil spray or butter while they are still warm.  cool in a wire rack.

10.  It stays pretty well in refrigerator for more than a week.
