Serves: 8-10
Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 package (about 1 tablespoon) fast acting yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup warm water (or more if needed)
Instructions
  1. Combine the flours with the sugar, yeast, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer with the dough hook and mix until the dry ingredients are combined. With the mixer running on low, drizzle in the water, adding more if needed, until the dough comes together in a ball. Turn the mixer speed up slightly and let the dough hook knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 5-10 minutes.
  2. Shape the dough into a ball in the bowl and cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled in size (1-2 hours) in a slightly warm place. (I turn the light on inside the oven and put the dough there as the heat from the light is just enough to facilitate the rise.)
  3. Remove the dough and gently deflate it before cutting into 8 (if you want large buns) to 10 pieces. Gently shape into a disk and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Let rise a second time until nicely puffed up, about 1-2 hours.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and cooked through, about 15-18 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack before slicing to use.
