(This recipe comes from The West Ladies of Homestead Blessings)
You will need:
3 tablespoons Honey
4-5 cups bread flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tablespoons yeast
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cup water
Put 2 cups flour into a bowl with the yeast & salt.
Heat oil, water, milk and honey until warm (not hot)
Pour into the 2 cups flour mixture and stir well. Continue to add the remaining flour until you get a soft dough.
Pour onto a floured surface and knead until a soft ball is formed.
Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
Pour onto floured surface again and roll out to about an inch thick.
Use a regular size mason jar lid to cut out the buns.
Place onto a greased baking sheet.
Cover and let rise for 45 minutes. Until doubled in size.
Risen and ready to put into an oven that has been preheated to 350* for about 15-20 minutes. Or lightly browned.
Take from oven and place on a cooling rack.
The bun on the left was cut with a regular mason jar lid. The bun on the right was cut with a large mason jar lid. The larger lid makes a HUGE bun. The smaller lid produces an average size bun.
YUMMY! Hamburgers made with grass fed Farmers Market Beef and home made buns.
It's what's for dinner!
