Do you like the taste of hot bread and rolls right out of the oven? I like to eat- so I do! I do! I came across this recipe for buns that can be ready in two hours. How convenient is that? They are so easy to make and taste great from the oven or late at night with cream cheese and strawberry jam. Yum. Or just the jam. I love sharing recipes and so for all you warm oven bun fans - here it is. Copy and paste this recipe to your files so you have it on hand. Enjoy. These buns can be frozen once cooked. When thawed they are so fresh.
TWO HOUR BUNS
3 cups warm water
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
2 TBSP yeast
6 to 8 cups flour
Combine 3 cups of flour with 2 Tbsp yeast; stir. Mix in a large bowl 3 cups warm water, 1/3 cup oil, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp salt and 2 eggs. Add flour/yeast to liquid mixture. Mix well, then continue to add remaining flour until dough is smooth and not sticky. Let rise for 15 minutes, punch down and let rise for another 15 minutes. Punch down and make into buns. Let rise for 1 hour. Bake in 350 degrees oven for 15 to 18 minutes. Brush with margarine and remove from pans. Makes 4 dozen buns.
I found that if you roll them into golf sized balls and roll those like a short snake and put two snakes into a muffin tin standing up somewhat, makes them rise bigger. Put the muffin tins in your oven with just the light on to wait for them to rise the 1 hour.
Smile like your guilty - of something! Happy day and warm buns.
