This recipe is great. I made it first with all-purpose flour as in the original recipe. Next I used half white bread flour & half whole wheat flour. Here's my method for making it in my Cook's Essentials Bread Machine (I suppose it would be the same for most others): Instead of milk, put about 1 3/4 c cold water in measuring cup & heat in the microwave about 1 min. (Current wisdom says not to use water from the water heater internally.) Add about 1/4-1/2 c dry milk solids & cold water. (Adjust these to taste to make a total of 2 c liquid.) Pour this into bread machine pan. Put 1/4 c water & 1/4 c margarine into the same measuring cup. Heat this in the microwave until the oleo melts & add it to the liquid in the pan. Add the 1/4 c white sugar, a scant 2 t salt & 3 cups bread (or all-purpose) flour & 3 cups whole wheat flour. Put the bread machine pan into the bread machine, make a little well in the middle of the flour & add 3 teaspoons of dry machine yeast, being careful not to let the yeast touch the water before starting the machine. Set the machine for dough and walk away. When the dough has finished rising, take it out & pull pieces out*, shape into balls, & place onto jelly-roll pans or cookie sheets. Let rest a few minutes & flatten to about 1/2" thickness. Let rise 20 min., bake 15 min. near the top of oven (the bottoms burn in my oven if I put them lower) and voila! Delicious & beautiful hamburger buns!! *5oz pieces yielded 12 large buns.
