Duration: 24 hours for the pre-dough to get active. Then another 3 hours to let the dough rise and baking the buns.
Makes 16 buns.
- 195 g white (6.9 oz) sourdough starter
- 500 g filtered water (17.6 oz, not fluid!)
- 340 g of bread flour (12 oz)
- 518 g (18.3 oz) bread flour
- 2/3 cups flaxseeds
- 1 tbsp sea salt
- 2 tbsp honey
Mix starter, water and bread flour in a bowl. Wrap the bowl with cling wrap and let sit in room temperature for 24 hours, until the pre-dough is active, looking bubbly. Add sea salt, honey and flaxseeds. Mix in bread flour until it starts to feel like a dough. Take up the dough on your working bench and knead it further. Divide the dough into 16 pieces. Roll little buns and place on a tray. Let rise for 2 hours.
Put in a casserole dish with half an inch of water in the oven. Preheat it to 460°F and bake the buns for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. The buns should sound hollow when knocking on the bottom.
