For the bun: 6 servings
4 cups Whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tbsp salt
2 1/2 cups warm water
1 1/4 tbsp yeast
.5 oz Muscovado sugar
In a bowl, mix together the whole wheat flour and salt and set it aside.
In another glass container mix your warm water, yeast and muscovado sugar. Allow the mixture to cool down a bit for about 6-7 minutes.
Add your liquid mixture now to the dry mixture and mix using your hands.
Knead your dough for about 10 minutes until smooth and little sticky.
Transfer your dough to a lightly floured bowl and cover with a kitchen towel and keep in a warm room for about 2 hours or until you see your dough has doubled in size.
Tip: If you lack a warm room, you can preheat your oven to 200 and then switch it off. Place the dough inside the oven and let it rise.
After the dough has doubled in size, pinch it so the air can be released from the dough.
Tip:You can knead your dough for an additional 3 minutes to ensure air completely releasesd
Divide your dough into 6 equal portions and form them into a ball and place them on your baking sheet. Cover the dough balls once again and leave them to rise for another hour.
Brush each bun with a vegan egg mixture, then sprinkle sesame seeds on top. Bake your bread at 400 F for about 10-12 minutes or until golden.
