Whole Wheat Burger Buns
We all like burgers, or should I say that we all like to eat junk food.Commercially, people use all-purpose flour to make buns.What if, if we make whole wheat burger buns and use them for our burgers? Isn’t it better to ask children to eat burgers instead of asking them to avoid it. My whole wheat burger buns give me the capability of saying yes to as many burgers as my child wants to eat. And I will never have the guilt of allowing him to eat junk food. Not just him, I can also now have a guilt free bite.
So a homemade whole wheat burger bun will always sounds healthier. Isn’t it?
Burgers – Americans or Germans
I was always confused if the burger is an American cuisine or a German cuisine. Went through a lot of posts and wiki and finally concluded that Hamburger was first made in Germany, as far as the written evidence is available. However, the cheese burger was invented in America.

Making a whole wheat bun isn’t a mammoth task. The shaping of the dough maybe a little trickier for a few. If you pick the shaping process properly, the burgers will come out to be smooth otherwise they could be rough on top.

In a bowl, take lukewarm water. Mix sugar and yeast into it and keep aside until yeast froths.
In a mixing bowl, take Whole wheat flour, Oil, Salt and Yeast solution. Start kneading the dough by adding water into it.
Initially the dough will be sticky. Take out the dough on lightly floured surface and knead it for 10 minutes. You will get much smoother and non-sticky dough.
Keep this dough into a greased pan and cover it with cling wrap. Let the dough rest until it doubles in volume.
Once the dough has doubled in its volume, take is out on a dusted surface and punch it to release the air.
Divide the dough into 6 equal parts.
Shape each dough ball into a bun and keep all these dough balls on a greased baking tray by leaving some space in between.
