All purpose and whole wheat flour make tender whole grain bath buns. Lemon adds a nice citrus sweetness and optional raisins.
1-1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons shortening
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 lemon rind, grated
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg, well beaten
1/2 cup seedless raisins, optional
Sift flour, measure, and sift with baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening.
Add grated lemon rind, sugar, egg, raisins, and enough milk to make a soft dough that can be molded.
Pat into sheet 1 inch thick and cut into rounds, or mold small amounts into round buns. Stick a bit of citron in the top of each. Reserve a little of the egg to brush over the top.
Place on well-oiled baking sheet. Bake in hot oven (450 degrees) 12-15 minutes.
Brush top with 1 tablespoon sugar moistened with a little cream. Serve hot.
