Whole Wheat Sandwich Buns

cindy sandberg


To make these buns, I took a basic sandwich bun recipe from a very old cookbook(1960's, I think) and replaced most of the white flour with whole wheat flour, the sugar with honey, and reduced the amount of oil. I also used rapid-rise yeast to shorten the rising times. They turned out good. We used them for pulled pork sandwiches and the family really liked them!
