Hot dog buns

This weekend we BBQ hot dogs for the kids and I made my own hot dogs bun. I can’t believe I never done this before and actually bought store bought because it was so easy and everyone thought they were so good.

5 cups white spelt flour
2 ½ cups whole wheat spelt flour maybe more
1 package active dry yeast
3 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 ½ cups warm almond milk
125g room temperature butter
In a large bowl or kitchen aid, combine flour, salt, sugar and dry yeast and blend. Add milk and then butter and really work the dough for a few minutes until the dough is shiny and lets go of the bowl. Add more flour if it’s too sticky. Cover the bowl with a towel and set aside to rise for 40 minutes.
Place dough on a flat surface sprinkled with flour and kneads the dough for five minutes. Divide dough into 30 pieces and shape into long and skinny buns. Place on a cookie sheet and leave to rise for another 40 minutes covered with a towel. Preheat oven to F400.  Bake for 10 minutes and then let them cool of on a wire rack cover with a towel.
