My Bun Recipe
September 9, 2010 § 5 Comments
This post is for Cate @ Moments of Whimsy who in the comments asked for my bread recipe.
I’m more than happy to oblige though I will have to admit that I’ve never actually tried to make a whole loaf of bread from this recipe. But it does make the most delicious dinner rolls and I’ve used it so often that I know it by heart.
Add to 1 cup of lukewarm milk
2 1/4 tsp of active dry yeast
Let stand for 5 – 8 minutes
Add 2 tblsp of soft butter
1/4 cup of white sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup at a time, add in 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
Whisk until mixture becomes thickened then start folding in remaining flour
Knead in any remaining flour as necessary
Place ball of dough in a covered bowl in a warm place and let rise for 1 hour
Knead on a floured surface, divide into twelve pieces and place in a buttered muffin pan
Cover with a tea towel and let rise for another hour
Brush lightly with melted butter
Bake in a preheated 400 – 425 F oven for 15 -20 minutes
When not over or under cooked, these buns are awesome. The trick is to get the temperature and time right, so keeping a close eye on them is a good idea.
Now I’m totally inspired to try baking a whole loaf from this recipe.
Cate, please let me know if you try it and how it turns out. I’m especially interested to see if there’s any notable differences from other bread recipes you’ve tried.
