Sesame Buns

Fresh home made buns without any additives and preservatives are a pleasure to make and scrumptious to eat.I selected these groovy Seasame buns from huge collection of awesome recipes from Indira's blog Mahanandi ,in spotlight for Zu's Tried and Tasted event.
The Sesame buns are my entry for this week's Yeast Spotting,a weekly event focusing on yeast recipes.

Recipe Sesame Buns

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1 tablespoon flax seeds or use flax seed meal
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup of Warm water
1/2 teaspoon of sugar
2 teaspoon active dry yeast or 1 packet(1/4 ounce) of quick rise yeast

Make the Dough
In warm water mix in the dry yeast and sugar. Let sit for 10 minutes,until it gets frothy.
In a bowl combine the flours,oil,seeds(reserve few sesame seeds for topping the buns) ,salt along with the yeast mixture. Knead until the dough is tacky but not sticky and place in a greased bowl and cover. Allow to rise for an hour until double its size.
Shape and proof the buns
Get the dough out of the bowl,sprinkle some all purpose flour on the work surface and knead the dough for few seconds and divide in to about 6 portions. Set on a cookie sheet and finish shaping the remaining buns,place them about 1/2 inch apart from each other,sprinkle some sesame seeds on each of the buns. Cover with wrap and allow to rise for another hour.
Bake the Buns
Preheat Oven to 450F. Bake for about 18-20 minutes until crust turns lightly brown. Let cool on rack,Slice using a serrated knife. Assemble the buns with choicest veggies and greens .
Can you guess the 6 ingredients I sandwiched in the bun??
