I attracted an audience today while making myself a wonder bun at work. It turned out great – I cut it in half, added butter and Havarti cheese, and melted it a bit in the micro. The picture is from when I used it with a burger the other night. These things are easy, fast, and really do the trick! I adapted this from a recipe I found online. I simplified things by just using one type of flour and skipped the sweetener all together. I like how my version comes out and it works well for my purposes. Check out the original Wonder Bun post by Kitchen Therapy for more ideas on how to customize this.Wonder Bun
yield: one 3 ½ inch bun
1 large egg
4 tablespoons almond meal
½ teaspoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
In a small bowl, beat the egg with a fork, for about a minute.
In another small bowl, add the almond meal, baking powder, and cocoa powder. Add a pinch of salt if you like. Make sure everything is thoroughly mixed so you do not see little balls of cocoa or bitter baking powder.
Add the eggs to the dry ingredients, stir until smooth.
Pour the batter into the cup. Top with more sesame seeds.
That is it! A ready to eat, tasty bun. A wonder bun!
