Nutritional values

These burger buns with sourdough become an eye-catcher with the addition of sesame seeds. And the crunchy topping can do a lot: Sesame seeds score with nutrients such as calcium for strong bones, magnesium for healthy muscles and nerves, and potassium and unsaturated fatty acids for a fit heart.

Just sesame seeds on the burger buns too boring? The topping can be varied: Try black sesame seeds, poppy seeds, caraway seeds, or chia seeds.

Preparation steps


The night before, mix the leavening well with whole wheat flour and 4 ounces of water. Cover and leave to ripen at room temperature for 12 hours (overnight).


The next day, weigh spelt flour in a bowl. Add sourdough, honey, and 1 egg and knead well. Knead in butter. Dissolve salt in 5 teaspoon of water, add to dough and knead for 10 minutes more. Cover the bowl and leave to mature for 1 hour.


Divide dough into 4 pieces and shape them into smooth balls. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and flatten each one about 1-inch, by hand. Cover with a clean tea towel and leave to mature for a further 30-60 minutes.


Mix remaining egg with 1 tablespoon milk and brush burger buns with it. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake in preheated oven at 200 °C / 400 °F for 15-20 minutes.


Remove from baking sheet while still hot and cool on a cooling rack.
