When I got my first bread machine, many moons ago, I discovered King Arthur bread flour. Then, I discovered their website and their forum on bread baking and found the famous Moomies Buns recipe. If you've done any kind of searching on the internet for bread baking or rolls, you've probably stumbled upon the Moomies Buns recipe. If you like making bread or rolls and you haven't tried these, you really owe it to yourself. They are amazing. I make them as dinner rolls for every holiday and whenever else I need rolls. They are light as air and soft and squishy. They are perfect.
(makes 8 hamburger size buns, I usually make 12 dinner rolls)
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons butter
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon instant yeast
Place all ingredients in your bread machine. Select the dough cycle. Allow to run cycle.
Dump out onto lightly floured surface. Divide into 8 (or how ever many you are making) pieces. With each piece, slap into a bun shape. Usually four or five slaps will do it. Place on greased cookie sheets or your bun pans, cover; rise about 30 to 40 minutes.
Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 12 to 15 minutes till golden.
