Homemade hot dog buns

I always found the store-bough hot dog buns flimsy and overly sweet. This recipe prepares a hearty, but airy and fluffy savory hot dog bun.

1 tbsp dry yeast
1.5 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
3.5 cups flour
1 tsp salt

Dissolve the sugar in 0.5 cup warm water. Sprinkle the yeast on top. Set aside for 15 minutes, until the top gets frothy.

Add the remaining warm water, the flour and the salt. Knead until smooth and elastic. A rather sticky dough will form, you may add a little more flour if necessary.

Allow to rise for 30 minutes in a warm oven (set to preheat for one minute, then shut it off).

Deflate the dough and cut it into 8 pieces and roll into logs. Place onto a baking sheet and allow to rise in the warm oven again for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and preheat it to 400F.

Bake the rolls until a very light brown. Cool on cookie racks.
