Whole Wheat Sweet Buns

Its holiday time here and kids are at home. Obviously am very busy with them, since kids are at home, its quite an obligation for me to make different snacks to satisfy my kids tastebuds with healthy stuffs in it. Two days back, i quickly prepared some yeasted buns with whole wheat, wheat bran and all purpose flour with sugar pearls specially for their evening snacks. These buns turned out simply awesome, while serving with nutella spread or simply with any fruit jam, these buns were quite addictive. Everyone at home enjoyed it thoroughly and i was happy when these buns vanished very much quickly.Sending to Mireille's Taste of Tropic- Sugarcane and to Jagruti's Know Your Flour.



1cup Whole wheat flour
1cup All purpose flour
2tbsp Wheat bran
1/4cup Low fat milk powder
1/4cup Confectioner's sugar or powdered sugar
1tsp Sugar
1/4tsp Salt
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1/4cup Butter (room temperature)
1/2cup Sugar pearls
Milk (for brushing)


Take the flours,wheat bran,milk powder,confectioner's sugar,sugar pearls (keep aside few for topping) and butter in a bowl, meanwhile mix the yeast,sugar and salt in half a cup of luke warm water,keep aside for few minutes until the yeast turns foamy..

Add gradually the yeast to the already prepared flour mixture (add water if needed) and knead everything as a soft,smooth dough,keep aside in a warm place for two hours.

Preheat the oven to 350F..Once the dough doubled their volume,punch down and knead everything well for few minutes.

Make 6-8 medium sized balls from the dough and arrange them over a baking sheet lined over a baking tray.

Brush the buns with enough milkand sprinkle generously the sugar pearls,bake for 20-25minutes until the crust turns golden brown..

Enjoy for breakfast or snacks with your favourite spread or jams.

@Annie, you can see the sugar pearls on the top of the buns, yes they are made with regular sugar as tiny pearls.
