1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tsp yeast
1/2 cup honey
2 large eggs
1/3 cup butter or margarine
2 cups whole wheat flour
3 cups white flour(keep 1/2 cup back)
1/2 cup flax
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
2 tsp salt
1 tsp cold water
quick oats to sprinkle with
|Start by putting 1 1/2 cups warm water in a small bowl.|
Sprinkle 2 teaspoons dry yeast over the top and let sit for 10 minutes, until frothy.
|Melt 1/3 cup butter(or marg) and add the 1/2 cup honey(I used creamed and it was fine)|
and 2 large eggs.
|Once yeast is reading pour it into your liquids and mix with the dough hook.|
|Add in 2 cups white flour and mix.|
|Add in 2 cups whole wheat flour and mix.|
|The last cup and a half I do the following. One cup I use half flax seed and half white flour.|
I keep a half a cup back and only add it if the dough sticks to the sides of the bowl.
|Add 2 teaspoons salt.|
|Add 1/2 cup quick cooking oats.|
|Knead for 5 minutes.|
|Put in a warm place and let rise until doubled, at least an hour, I found it takes longer.|
|Shape into a long log.|
|Cut into 8 pieces.|
|Shape into log buns. I know you can do WAY better than I did! :) Let rise for another hour.|
|Mix 1 tsp cold water and an egg white. Brush the buns with this.|
|Sprinkle with quick cooking oats.|
Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
|Let cool on a wire rack.|
|Make a really yummy sandwich with your favorite fixings.|
