White Spelt Burger Buns

Makes 9

These enriched bread rolls are made with creamy white spelt flour and are great for serving with traditional beef or veggie burgers. Homemade burger buns are my way of adding a special touch to the usual BBQ routine and if there are ever any left over, I freeze them for another day.

  1. Put the flour, yeast, sugar and salt into a large bowl and blend them together.
  2. Separate the egg, add the yolk to the bowl and save the white for later.
  3. Stir in the milk into the flour and when everything looks craggy and lumpy, stir in the oil.
  4. Using your hands gather everything together into a slightly sticky dough.
  5. Knead dough in the bowl for 100 presses. Avoid adding flour if possible.
  6. Cover the dough with oiled cling film and leave it in a warm place for the dough to double in size.
  7. Line a large baking tray with parchment and pre-heat the oven.
  8. Knead the dough for another 100 presses.
  9. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and cut it into 9 pieces. Roll each into a ball.
  10. Place the dough balls onto the prepared baking tray and brush the tops with the reserved egg white.
  11. Sprinkle a pinch of sesame seeds over each bun and leave them to rise in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  12. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

I just made these using my bread machine pan as a mixing bowl for steps 1 to 4 and then put it in the machine on the dough cycle. Next I prepared the rolls, let them rise and baked them. Absolutely perfection. The husband is going to be so pleased he has not had a decent bread roll in years due to being low tolerance to gluten. He can handle white spelt though.

Made these buns today and they are delicious, the only thing different is that I added the yeast to 50ml of tepid water as i believe if you add yeast and salt together it kills the yeast. Then changed the milk to 250ml. Other than that the recipe was spot on.

You must need the mixture well, but otherwise the best bread roll recipe I have tried

Rolls came out very dense, not great for burgers. Dough didn't rise very well as the it was quite a dry/dense mix.
