I have used this recipe countless times and my family loves it! I cut the oil back to 3 tablespoons, it makes the texture lighter. When I use it for hamburger rolls I decrease the sugar to 3 Tablespoons as well. I also found, depending on the weather, that the dough must sit longer than the recommended 10 minutes. Sometimes it takes longer. If you are a first time baker of bread, let the rolls almost double before putting them in the oven. For those of you who have tried this recipe and found it to be too heavy try cutting back the oil and letting the dough rise a little more before baking. I have also substituted 1 cup of whole wheat flour for white flour and they turn out wonderful. I have also substituted 1/2 cup of flour and used a multi-grain flour. This is my new dough recipe for sticky buns. Now I can whip up sticky buns and they will be done in an hour from start to finish. It takes about 20-30 minutes for the dough to rise since I roll it with a rolling pin. When I make sticky buns I use the recommend amount of sugar in the dough. Happy Baking!
Excellent buns!!! I cut oil to 3T. and sugar to 3T as well. The result was light and tender buns! The flavor was great and the effort minimal. I did let mine rise longer but only because I had the time while I prepared the rest of dinner! I got 12 regular size buns (once they rised). I was thinking they would be more slider size (not a big deal for my family). I will try this recipe will full amount of sugar and try for cinnamon rolls! I will let you know how they turn out!! Thanks!! UPDATE: I couldn't wait so I got up this morning and made the recipe as Cinnamon Rolls. I used the entire amount of sugar but still kept the oil at 3T. I rolled the dough into a rectangle, poured about 1/2 c melted butter, then sprinkled generously with sugar and cinnamon. I rolled up and cut, put in oiled dish and let rise for about 10-15 minutes then baked at 375 for about 15-20 minutes. Topped with cream cheese icing! YUMMY!! Only took about an hour and 15 minutes start to finish! I also got about 23 rolls out of dough. I put others in freezer for another time and will just let sit out awhile before baking!
First off, I am a total beginner at bread making. Completely yeast phobic but with encouragement from other members I decided to give this recipe a go. I will not bore you with my trials and tribulations as they all stemmed from my complete ineptitude. For example - dissolve yeast in water. I had no idea whether ot not to stir it or just leave it. As I said - a complete dolt er...I mean beginner. The way I mishandled just about every step is almost mind boggling.
The end result was soft pillowy mouthfuls of perfection! I topped the rolls with Everything Topping- Bagels, Rolls, Bread and could not be happier. What an excellent recipe for both yeastaphobes as well as more experienced bakers. Thank you so much for posting this. I'm on my way to being a breadmaker!
