This a nice hamburger bun recipe. My family and I really enjoyed it. I have read many of the reviews and think I can offer some help to those who are stuggling. You will have a very dense bun if you add too much flour. When you are adding the last two cups of flour, add them in a little at a time. When the dough starts to pull away from the bowl and is not so sticky that you have a sticky "pool" of it at the base of your bowl, you have the right amount of flour. It will still be a little sticky, but you will have a very light dough. If you find that your dough isn't rising well, there are a couple things you can do. First, check your yeast and make sure it is still good. You can do this by adding some yeast to warm water and adding a little flour or sugar. Leave it for about 10 minutes. At this point, it should be frothy or creamy looking. If it doesn't do anything, you need new yeast. Another thing you could do is switch flours to bread flour. It has a higher gluten content, and it should do better in the rising phase. If you wish to make the recipe with 100% whole wheat flour add a little gluten flour; a tablespoon for every cup of flour. I use this for making a 100% whole wheat breads with freshly ground wheat. It will help your dough rise. I hope this helps someone. :)
