Gerry my friend, I love this recipe. The rolls are wonderful they are so flavorful, light, crispy and tender. They taste so good, I can't believe that I made them. I usually have problems with bread or rolls, but not this time. Your recipe was perfect, the bread turned out beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing a recipe that is going into my keeper box. :)

Made this recipe into rolls to be served with soup. Perfect combination, these homemade rolls with homemade soup. It was the first time I used the dough cycle on my breadmaker but certainly not the last. So very easy to put together. The dough had a wonderful texture and after being baked I had the fluffiest, tender beautiful rolls. This recipe will be repeated many times over. Thanks Gerry!

My family loved these. I used only 1 tsp of salt as suggested and they were perfect for saltiness. My family likes a sweeter bun so next time I will increase the sugar for our tastes but that is our personal preference. I got 12 large buns from this and they stayed fresh into the next day. Thanks for a great recipe.

Excellent bread! DS wanted momkey bread and his g/f never had it before- SHOCKER! So off I went to zaar to find a recipe using fresh dough not frozen. This is perfect! I used your suggestion of extra sugar and what a difference it made. Lovely. I think I will make some cinnamin rolls with this as well. Gerry this is a definite keeper! I made the monkey bread in 2 9" round pans and layered balls on bottom and 1 row of balls on top. (as opposed to a bundt pan) they came out great and the kids could take some to work from the 2nd batch.

I had a mishap with my bread maker and it wouldn't turn on once I added all of the ingredients. I ended up hand mixing everything and was afraid it wasn't going to turn out. Luckily, the dough did rise and the rolls came out great! I used extra sugar to make them sweeter, but I honestly didn't taste it, so next time I won't do that. I also used Smart Balance Light (only 50 calories per TBL, 1st ingredient is water, it doesn't melt that well) and it worked fine. I will absolutely be making this again once my KitchenAid stand mixer arrives! Thanks for sharing.

This bread is awesome! I used my stand mixer. I threw everything in and mixed until blended. I let it stand for 20 mins then mixed for 5-7 mins. I let it rise for an hour until doubled. Then I shaped it in the loaf pan, covered and let it rise for 30 mins. Then baked it. It turned out perfect! I dont like using my bread maker for dough because it dries out the outside. Thank you for a wonderful bread recipe.

Wonderful bread! I used my stand mixer instead of the bread machine to make the dough and then just allowed it to rise in the pan before baking. The flavor and texture of the bread is so nice. I have one DD that does not like the taste of heavy dense whole grain breads and she hates the fact that the standard store bought white bread is so mushy. It got to the point where she would rather go hungry then eat a sandwich for lunch. All that has changed since I made your bread! Thank you for posting this great recipe. It will be made several times a week in our home. :)

I made 12 rolls in a muffin pan. I used also 1 tsp of salt and 1 tablespoon of sugar. I didn't have to add more flour or water in the bread machine. It was perfect. I left to rise 30 minutes and cooked 25 minutes. Thanks Gerry :) Made for Cookbook tag game

Brilliant rolls!! Worked perfectly. I Brushed with a drop of warm milk and added a sprinkle of sesame and poppy seed before baking and they turned out really well and whisking the flour adds air to the mix for a lighter roll. Thanks a million for sharing that recipe. I feel like a pro baker now !!!
