- 1 cup unflavored soy milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup butter
- 4 1/2 cups flour half all-purpose half wheat
- 1 tbsp instant yeast
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 egg or egg replacer equivalent
In a small saucepan, heat milk, water and butter until very warm. When that is warming up in a large bowl, mix together 1 3/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt. Mix milk mixture into flour mixture, and then mix in egg replacer. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes or about 4 to 5 minutes with the Kitchenaid kneading attachment.
There they are just placed on the baking sheet
Then divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape into smooth balls, and place on a greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly. Cover, and let rise for 35 minutes.
After the rising process
Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Here they are pulled apart and waiting to be used!
For the seitan: it was ground with the attachement and then shaped into burger forms. The seitan was naturally a bit sticky so I did not use anything to bind it. Then over medium high heat on a cast iron skillet they were cooked for about 6 minutes or until golden brown.
