RECIPE BACKSTORY
I found this recipe on the internet which I had to substitute and add some ingredients to make this recipe 100% whole wheat. This is a great recipe because it has all good things in it and no preservatives plus the dough is made in the bread machine. My family and friends cannot believe how soft and delicious these buns are. You can also add different ingredients to this dough such as dried diced onions, etc.
