HAPPY CANADA DAY
Be the change that you want to see in the world
I got this recipe from the "Word of Life Church Cookbook" submitted by Valerie Funk.
I just love these little community cookbooks. I have made this recipe for years and only bake them in the summer. Our family really enjoys having them with homemade burger, chicken, bison, what ever kind of burger you make these buns just make them taste better......They also make a nice sandwich bun, hmmm, so why do I only bake them in the summer?
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 3 tbsp. sugar
- 2 tbsp. butter, I used oil
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 5 3/4-6 3/4 cups flour, I use half unbleached and half whole wheat
- 2 tbsp. instant yeast
- 1 1/2 grated sharp old Cheddar cheese ( the stronger the cheese the better the flavour)
- 1/4 cup grated onion
1- combine all the dry ingredients, 5 cups of flour, sugar, salt, yeast.
2- stir in the cheese and onion.
3- add all liquid ingredients, water and oil.
4- knead until you have a soft dough adding more flour as you go along if needed to makes a soft and slightly sticky consistency.
5- Place dough into a greased bowl.
6- Let rise until double in bulk.
7- shape into buns and flatten slightly.
8- they make about 20-24 buns depending on size
9- bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
