Wheat Bran Gluten Bread

The burger buns and hot dog rolls sold in the supermartkets here are too fluffy and sweet. I prefer to make my own, added raw wheat bran and wheat gluten for texture and nutrition.

1 1/4 cups water
7 tsp oil
2 1/2 tbsp molasses
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp dry milk
1 cup raw wheat bran
2 1/2 tbsp wheat gluten
3 cups bread flour
2 tsp instant yeast


1 egg yolk + 1 tsp water


Put the ingredients in the bread machine following the order from the top.

Choose the program that will knead and proof dough.

Take out dough when ready and scale into 100 gm balls

Shape balls and flatten to about 4 inches (these will be for burgers) , roll them flat into oval shape and rolled it tightly like a swiss roll, then shape dough to the size of dog about 5 - 6 inches.
Let them proof covered with damp cloth until double.

Make slashes for the hot dog buns. For the burger buns, glaze the top and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Bake in preheated oven at 400 F for 12 - 15 minutes (convection bake will be faster)
