Serves: 16 buns

1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 TBSP raw,local honey
1 large egg, room temperature
4 1/2 cup flour (I used 3 cups spelt and 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/4 tsp yeast (or one package)
1 1/4 tsp sea salt

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Pour milk, water, melted butter and honey into a glass bowl. Microwave until warm, just to take the chill off. Add the egg.
  2. Pour into bread machine. Measure flour and put on top of wet ingredients. Make a little well in the flour, add yeast and salt.
  3. Set machine to dough cycle. When finished, take dough out, knead for a few turns, then divide into 16 pieces (12 for larger buns). Roll into balls, place on greased sheet (I used parchment paper instead), flatten tops down a bit, cover with a cloth and let rise 30 minutes until about doubled.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
  5. *You can brush the tops with egg wash and sprinkle with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, coarse sea salt or whatever you would like.
