Original recipe yields 12 rolls



  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture with the sugar, salt, oil and 1 cup of flour; stir well to combine. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 8 minutes.
  3. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Divide the dough into twelve equal pieces and form into rounds. Place the rounds on prepared baking sheets. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Place on a wire rack to cool.

Ok, if you make this recipe, IT IS WONDERFUL! We have tried numerous bread recipes and this one is now our absolute favorite! So simple and tastes wonderful (especially hot out of the oven with some butter)! We did have a bit of a problem with the first rising, but our electric oven wasn't warm enough. A quick warming and they rose nicely! We are already coming up with ideas for garlic bread, herb bread, cheese bread, and whatever else we can think of! Thanks for sharing this one!

This was my first bread with yeast and I loved it. The buns are soft, but just a tad dry. Adding a little milk may help. I stuffed them with a potato filling, and they were just yum!



These turned out delicious! Especially right out of the oven with butter. However, I made 12 like the recipe said, but they turned out to be over sized biscuit sized - not big enough for hamburgers. I let them rise for 40 minutes the second time. I guess I should have waited even longer, possibly 60 - 90 minutes. They also took way longer to bake than stated. But I've been having this problem with bread in general because I'm new at it. Will definitely make these again. Delicious!
