Most Monday evenings during the rowing reason I spend rowing on the fjord of Vejle, which means I drive directly from work to the rowing club, jump into the boat and I spend the first 15 minutes sitting on the coxing seat, while eating a bun with either cheese or ham.
So on a regular basic I need to stock my freezer up with more buns for the rowing tour on a Monday evening, so I spend time looking for new recipes mostly located in the bread book "Hjemmebagt". However, this time I have found this recipe on kernebrød on the home-page of Skærtoft Mølle, and instead of baking bread I turned the dough into buns.
Kerneboller (whole grain buns) a la Skærtoft: - 20 buns
- 150 cracked rye grains
- 200 g cold water
- 30 g salt
- 80 g sun flower seeds
- 80 g stone grounded whole grain rye flour
- 1300 g stone grounded Ølands wheat flour or spelt flour
- 15 g yeast
- 20 g sugar
- 400 g buttermilk or yogurt
- 500-600 g water
- Start by mixing the cracked rye grains, salt and water together in a mixing bowl, let it rest cold for minimum 8 hours or night over.
- Add the soaked cracked rye grains into a dough bowl, add the rest of the ingredients as well.
- Knead the dough together, I usual knead for 10 minutes.
- After the kneading process, let the dough raise warm for 1½-2 hour.
- Divide the dough into equal size buns, I always a kitchen scale for this purpose in order to ensure equal baking of the buns, I target a dough amount of 80 g per bun.
- Place the buns a baking tray covered with baking paper, and let the buns raise for another 30-45 minutes.
- Heat up the (conventional) oven to 200'C.
- Bake the buns at 200'C for 20-30 minutes in the upper part of then oven.
