Scrumptious Sesame Spelt Hamburger Buns

These are based on my favorite wheat hamburger buns back from when I ate wheat. They do have egg in them, but they are just as good as any wheat buns.

1/2 cup warm water (a little more if needed)
1 Tbsp instant yeast
1/4 cup honey
1 egg
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 1/2 cups white spelt flour
1 1/4 tsp salt
—-
For topping:
1 egg
2-3 Tbsp sesame seeds

Mix yeast, honey, and water. Add egg, olive oil, flour, and salt. Mix and knead gently (you need to be careful not to over-knead spelt). Cover and let rise for one hour.

Divide into 8 pieces. Form them into balls, and then flatten into circles, about 1 inch high and 3 inches in diameter. Place on a greased baking sheet and let rise for around 1 hour.

Beat together 1 egg and 1 Tbsp water. Brush rolls with the egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until tops are golden but bottoms are not overly browned.
