Wholemeal Bun

Wholemeal bun

Wholemeal Bun! Finally something more healthy! this is my to go recipe for a good wholemeal bun! i love the texture that the wholemeal flour gives and at the same time, this recipe doesn’t have eggs included *vegetarian friendly and a very small amount of butter. i do not have a standard filling for my bun, i just fill with whatever that comes to my mind, or whatever the family requests for.

Here we go!

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a mixer and using a dough hook mix till well combined.
  2. Add milk till dough is formed.
  3. Add softened butter and knead for 15 minutes or till dough is not sticky and forms a membrane when stretch. (windowpane test)
  4. Place dough in a greased container,cling wrap it and proof for 45 minutes or till it doubles its size.
  5. Remove and divide them into small doughs(around 30g) and let them rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Roll out,fill and shape as desired.
  7. Place shaped dough onto lined baking tins,cling wrap and proof for 45 minutes.
