Recipe Ingredients for Whole Wheat Bran Buns

12 ounces water
1 3/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp molasses
2 eggs
3 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup wheat bran
3/4 cup bread flour
1 1/2 tbsp vital wheat gluten
3 tsp active dry yeast

Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Bran Buns

  1. In a large bowl or stand mixer, stir together the warm water, salt, honey, molasses, and eggs. Beat in the whole wheat flour, bran, wheat gluten, and yeast. Using a dough hook or large spoon, beat about 2 minutes. Dough will be very sticky. Turn dough into a large greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.

  2. After rising, punch down and let rest 20 minutes. Turn dough out onto a board dusted with 1/2 cup of the unbleached bread flour. Knead lightly, working in enough bread flour to make it smooth and elastic.

  3. Divide dough into 12 pieces, and roll into balls, larger than a golf ball but smaller than a tennis ball. Place evenly in a well-greased 9" x 13" pan. Let rise until double in volume, about 45 minutes to an hour.

  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes. Do not overbake. Buns should still be soft-feeling, but sound a bit hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove from oven and brush tops with melted butter. Remove from pan before separating and place on cooling rack.

  5. Allow to cool prior to separating into buns. Use a sharp knife for this to get evenly-sized buns. Store tightly wrapped. Refrigerate if leftover for more than 2 days.
