Makes 18 Buns

Bread Machine Pan

  • 1¾ cups filtered water warmed (trace)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar (1.49 mg)
  • 1 large egg, whole (70 mg)
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or expeller pressed canola oil(trace)
  • 5¼ cups white bread machine flour (13.1 mg)
  • 1/3 teaspoon onion powder (.432 mg)
  • 2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten (4.5 mg)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated soy lecithin (trace)
  • 1 tablespoon Malted Barley Flour (trace)
  • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar¹(trace)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Fleischmann's bread machine yeast*** (8 mg)
Sesame Seed Topping
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (1.98 mg)
  • 1 large egg white, whole** (27.41 mg)
Place Bread Machine Pan ingredients in bread machine pan in order listed. Set machine to dough.

When dough is nearly done, stir one tablespoon of water into eggwhite only and whisk briskly. Set aside.

When dough is ready roll out onto lightly floured board. Press down gently half way.

Lightly oil and flour-dust two baking sheets or use cooking or parchment paper*.

Place egg into small bowl, add 1 tablespoon water and whisk briskly.

With dough pressed or rolled gently down to ½ to ¾" thick (a measured &frac;4" is perfect), cut rings out with a muffin ring and set on baking sheet. You should get about 14 buns for the whole recipe (7 per baking sheet). Baste buns all over including the sides with the egg batter and then sprinkle generously with sesame seeds.

Place into warmed or proof temperature oven for 45 minutes to an hour, uncovered, or place in warm spot in your home lightly covered with lightly flour dusted cloth and let rise for about one-hour.

Preheat oven to 375° F and bake on middle rack, one baking sheet at a time for about 20 to 25 minutes. If you want to bake both at the same time in one oven then set the racks apart, one lower than the other. The top rack will be done before the bottom. Keep an eye on the top rack because they may take only 15 minutes or so.

¹ Sugar substitutes, also known as sweeteners, like sucralose (Splenda) and all others, will not activate yeast and they cause blood glucose to rise higher than the levels sugar induces.

*If making loaves for sandwich bread, oil and flour dust two 10" pans and cut dough in half. Form for loaf pans by pulling toward you and folding under a couple of times, making the length the same as the bread pans. After dough is formed in pans, brush egg liberally over entire exposed area of dough with a basting brush. Place each into a bread pan and set into your oven set on "proof." If you don't have a proof button, turn oven to 300° F for 1 minute for gas oven, one and a half minutes for electric. Turn off. Spread egg and sesame seeds on top as instructed above. Let rise in the oven or a warm spot for about an hour before baking. Bake at 375° F for about a half hour or until crust is hollow. You may also leave the loaves in the oven you are proofing in and turn the oven on to 425° F. Your bread will rise a bit more and the bread will cook in just about the same time. Keep an eye on it after the first 20 minutes. Check for hollow sound or nice golden brown top.

**Not all of the egg will be used. We estimate the total sodium level to be around 30 mg for what egg you do use.

***If you use any other yeast then add 1/4 teaspoon ascorbic acid or 3 500 mg vitamin C tablets.
