Combine the yeast and flour:
- 2 Tbsp Fermipan inst. yeast (only available in Canada, I think. Use this type if possible)
- 4 cups flour (I used half bread/half all-purpose. My grandma swears by Ellison’s)
- 8 Tbsp white sugar
- 6 Tbsp oil (Canola)
- 2 eggs
- 3 cups warm water
Add flour/yeast mixture and blend well.
Combine the following:
- 1 tsp salt
- 3-4 cups flour
Add the salt/flour to the mixture and blend well until smooth.
Pour out onto floured surface and knead. Place in a large greased bowl, turning once so dough is coated. Cover with cloth and let rise 15 min in warm over. Punch down. Let rise again about 30 min. Punch down.
Pour out onto floured surface. Form into buns (If you roll out and then use a glass to cut them they will be more uniform). Place on a greased pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place.
Bake 15-18 min @350F
Makes about 4 doz.
