  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp margarine
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp quick rise yeast also known as instant yeast
  • melted butter for brushing buns
  1. Add all ingredients to bread machine in the above order, and press "dough" setting.

  2. When done, transfer dough to a lightly-floured counter top and shape into a ball.

  3. Cut ball in half, and then cut those two pieces in half and so on, until you have 16 pieces. (sprinkle more flour on your counter if dough starts to stick)

  4. Shape your pieces into round buns, and place in a sprayed 9 x 13 baking dish or 2 smaller dishes. Leave about an inch between buns.  

  5. Brush buns with melted butter, and cover the baking dish with Plastic Wrap. Set in warm spot (about 80 degrees Farenheit) until buns have doubled in size - about 40 mins.  (I usually heat my oven to about 200, and then turn my oven right OFF, and place the dish in there with the door open a crack.

  6. Once doubled, remove plastic wrap, and bake 12-15 minutes at 375 degrees.
Recipe Notes

To make a day ahead, place the covered baking dish in the fridge to do a slow rise overnight. Remove from fridge the next day, an hour or two before baking, so they finish rising, and bake as directed.
