Quick Wheat Hamburger Buns

I decided to make Veggie Bean Burgers for dinner tonight, but didn't have any buns or enough time to make rolls that require multiple risings. After a quick Google search, I came across this recipe that doesn't require any rising time at all, just a short rest before baking.

Quick Wheat Hamburger Buns
from One Frugal Foodie, who adapted it from Recipezaar

2 T. active dry yeast
1 c. plus 2 T. warm water
1/3 c. oil
1/4 c. sugar
1 egg
1 t. salt
2 c. all-purpose or white bread flour
1 1/2 to 1 3/4 c. whole wheat flour

1. In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Stir in the oil and sugar, and let the mixture stand for 5 minutes.

2. Add the egg, salt, white flour, and 1 1/2 cups of the wheat flour, combining until it forms a soft dough.  Add the additional 1/4 cup of wheat flour as needed to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands (if you need a little more, that is okay too). Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes or so.

3. Divide the dough into 8 pieces, shape each into a thick disc, and place them on baking sheets about 3 inches apart.

4. Preheat your oven to 425ºF. Lightly cover the balls of dough and let them rest for about 10 minutes (or longer if you wish). Pop them in the oven and bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until nicely browned. Cool on a wire rack.
