Savoury Party Buns

A bit funny shape but very delicious.

I was baking a cake the other day and thought I should use some of my whole wheat flour. I’ve heard many times that whale wheat flour would go rancid after a while. Since I haven’t used mine in a while I was a bit worried that it could be case. So, find a recipe that would use those. Sadly, a lot of German bread and bun recipes require various types of flour.

Bread January – Cheese Biscuits

White Buns

I know my mother doesn’t like that type of dough and I believe neither does my grandmothers. There is always the chance of killing the yeast, which can happen quickly. I am not saying that I am an expert with this, I had some accidents myself already. Practice is the key word, as always.
