These simple, yet oh so soft, spelt flour hot dog buns are amazing. Quick, no fancy ingredients, just bread that is unbelievably soft.

Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, you know hot dogs are not healthy. No sausage is, really. However, if you live in Sweden, you can’t escape the sausage. It’s everywhere. And my kids have always loved a good ‘dog. White, mass-produced hot dog bread is a no-go though. It’s horrible.

Super Soft Spelt Flour Hot Dog Buns

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
In the bread machine 1 hour
Servings 8 buns

Equipment

  • Bread Machine

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 250ml milk
  • 50g butter (chopped)
  • 380g spelt flour (see notes)
  • 7g dried yeast
  • ½ tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Add all of the ingredients (wet then dry) for the dough into your bread maker. Set the machine to make the dough only (I usually don't let the machine run the full cycle, but remove the dough after around 45-60 minutes).
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
  • Remove the ready dough from the machine and place on a floured surface (the dough will be very sticky - it's supposed to be). Work some flour into the dough until you can work with it. Then, divide into around 8 pieces of around the same weight.
  • Roll each piece into a "hot dog roll" shape of around 14cm long and place on a large baking tray lined with grease proof paper. The buns should be have a space of around 1-2cm between them (when they bake and merge together, it makes for a softer bread).
  • Cover with a tea towel and leave in a warm place for around 30 minutes. Then, bake for 10 minutes, just until the tops are nice and brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

Notes

The instructions above are for a bread machine. Results can't be guaranteed if you make the buns by hand.
  1. If you'd like to use regular flour, use 400g instead of the 380g mentioned
  2. I use grams in my recipes as weighing ingredients is the most accurate method. However, if cups are your thing, you can convert my measurements at Cook it Simply.
