Just a quick entry to get things rolling again.  I decided it was finally time to show off my buns!  I am pretty proud of these babies.  You may remember them from this entry.  Born from a simple recipe on, we haven't been disappointed yet.

 Burger/Patty Buns adapted from
(These instructions are adapted from the notes I took on the recipe.)
1 c. warm soymilk
1 c. warm water
2 T. agave nectar (or other sweetener)
2 1/4 t. yeast
5-5 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 t. salt
for tops: a little soymilk and sesame seeds (or sunflower ;)

1)  In a large mixing bowl combine the soymilk, water, agave and yeast.  Let stand several minutes.  In another bowl combine the flour and salt.  Add flour/salt (approx.1/2 cup at a time) until the dough comes together and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.  The dough should be soft, but not sticky or dry.  Knead until elastic, then place in a lightly oiled bowl, turning to coat.  Cover and allow to rise until doubled, approx. 1 hr.

2)  Preheat oven - 400 and line a baking sheet.

3)  Punch down the dough and divide into 12 rolls. Knead each on a dry surface until tight, then place on the baking sheet.  Let rolls rest for at least 5 min., then flatten slightly with your palm.  Cover loosely and allow to rise, 20 min. or until doubled.

4)  Mix a little soymilk with water and gently brush tops of buns.  Sprinkle with sesame seeds or other topping of your choice.  Bake for about 15 min. or until golden.

Nessa, yay for you! Flax is a great idea.

Thanks Krys ;) I'd like to get fancy eventually, but for an easy recipe I'm very please with these.

Thanks Mihl! I really love your new site design, by the way.
