Combine dry ingredients in a spiral mixer and blend at a low speed for 1 minute. Add spring water and organic yeast. Continue to mix for 4 minutes on your mixer’s first speed and then for an additional 6 minutes on your mixer’s second speed, or until dough is fully developed. Maintain dough temperature at 78°F (26°C).

Once the dough is fully developed, allow it to rest, covered, for 15 minutes. Then divide into 1.8 oz (50 g) portions for round buns or 2.1 oz (60 g) portions for hot dog buns. Proof for 55 to 60 minutes.

Bake at 400°F (204°C) for 20 to 25 minutes until browned. Please note that out of the same dough, you can also make pan bread.
