Here is a recipe for home made buns as promised.

Home Made Buns

  • 1-1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon warm unsweetened soy milk (105F)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fast rising dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2-3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • cornmeal for dusting sheet pan

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine soy milk, sugar, yeast, and salt. Stir well and allow to sit 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Blend in oil, then flours and cornmeal.
  • Stir together well and knead for at least 3 minutes in bread mixer or by hand on floured surface.
  • Place in bowl covered loosely with plastic wrap and allow to rise in warm place (75 to 80 degrees F) until nearly doubled in size, approximately 30 to 40 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Grease sheet pan and lightly dust with cornmeal. Punch down dough and divide into 6 balls of equal size (I make them into 8 normal size buns).
  • Form balls into disks.
  • Rotating each disk in hands, gently tuck the edges of each disk under and toward the center of bottom, slightly stretching top to a smooth tightness. Place on sheet pan and flatten until approximately 1 inch thick and 4 inches wide. Allow to rise for a few minutes in warm place until nearly doubled in size.
  • Bake on middle oven rack for 20 to 30 minutes until browned on bottom. May be further browned on top by placing very briefly under broiler. Remove to a wire rack and cool completely.
