This is my go to recipe from notecook.com for homemade buns and rolls! It’s easy and no fail! I made buns tonight to go with hamburgers on the grill. Add mushrooms and gorgonzola-delicious!
- 1/2 c. warm water (about 100-110 degrees Fahrenheit – if you get it too hot or too cold, the yeast will not work properly. A thermometer is best, but if you don’t have one, make the water only slightly on the hot side of lukewarm, and be sure it is NOT so HOT it is scalding.)
- 2 1/2 tsp. yeast (or 1 pkg is OK-which is 2 1/4 tsp.)
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 c. milk
- 3 Tbsp. butter (soft)
- 1 egg
- 5 cups flour
- 1 tsp. salt
Then put your machine on it’s dough setting, which should last approximately 1 1/2 hours. As your dough mixes, use a spatula or spoon to help the flour get mixed in. If dough looks rough and cracked, you may need to add a teaspoon or so of warm water. If it is sticky and runny, you may need to add a bit more flour.
Shape into rolls or buns, let rise with damp towel for 35 minutes. Brush with egg whites and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
