Serves: 6-8 large buns or 12 smaller rolls
  • 2 tablespoons yeast, active dry, prefer Fleischmann's
  • 1 cup plus ⅛ cup (2 tablespoons) tablespoons hot water
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 plus ½ teaspoons salt
  • 3 plus ½ to 4 cups flour, I prefer half bread flour / half all-purpose, but you can use any
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Combine yeast, hot water, oil and sugar in a mixer bowl. Stir to combine.
  3. Allow yeast mixture to rest for about 5 minutes, until bubbles form.
  4. Mix in egg, salt and most of the flour. Add in remaining flour as needed until mixing dough forms a soft ball.
  5. Knead on lightly floured counter or mix with dough hook for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Immediately remove dough from mixer and cut/form into sized balls on lightly floured surface. Remember, these will almost double when baked.
  7. Place pieces on paper lined baking sheet and cover. Let rise for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Place in pre-heated oven and bake until golden, about 10-15 minutes.
  9. Enjoy! Visit for more delicious recipes!
Note: These buns are fairly dense. Can be enjoyed as buns or on their own as excellent side rolls. Try them toasted with garlic butter or jam!
