DIRECTIONS

  • Add the warm water to your mixing bowl and stir in the sugar until most of it is dissolved. Gently stir in the yeast. Wait 5 minutes for the yeast to become active. You should see some yeast and bubble floating to the top.
  • Mix in the cup flour. Add the egg and butter at this point and mix thoroughly.
  • Stir in the salt.
  • Slowly mix in the rest of the spelt flour. When it forms a ball that just barely sticks to the bowl, then it is time to start kneading.
  • Either turn it out onto a floured board or switch to a dough hook in your mixer, and knead for 3 minutes.
  • Put the dough ball in the rising bowl and roll it around so that it is coated with the oil. Cover the bowl with a damp towel or plastic wrap, and let rise for about 2 hours or until doubled.
  • Punch down the dough and gently knead out any large bubbles. Let it rest for a few minutes.
  • For Rolls:
  • Oil your cake pan. Pull off pieces of dough a little bigger than a golf ball and roll them in your hand to form round top. Place them side by side in your pan. I tend to make 4 rows of 4 rolls in an 8x8 pan and 5 rows of 5 slightly smaller rolls in a 9x9 pan. Cover and let rise for an hour. Preheat your oven to 350°F Bake for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • For Buns:
  • Separate dough into 16 equal pieces and shape into flattened, round buns. Place onto 2 large cookie sheets and allow to rise for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350F and bake 12-18 minutes.
