Recipe by yogi
These are so good we eat them plain. No butter needed, though if you want to go through all the trouble of getting it out of the frig and getting a knife, etc. be my guest. Actually got this recipe from allrecipes.com (but that was before I found this website...I'll never go back!) ha!

These were great and tasty buns. They are such soft and fluffy rolls! I moulded mine to 16 little mini rolls, and they turned out a great size, great as a afternoon snack. These buns rise really well, and it DOESN'T have a yeasty taste at all. Just like Mirjam, I also punched down the dough and let it rise a second time before shaping and letting it raise on parchment paper before putting it in the oven. I cut down the water to 1/4 cup, and added 1/2 a cup of fresh orange juice instead. The I grated the rind of the oranges into the mixture. I brushed the top of the rolls with a little beaten egg mixture, just to give it a nice colour and gloss. Turned out just like it would if you bought it in a store. Try this recipe, it is fail proof...I am an utter novice in bread making. :)
