Jake's Buns

"This is the recipe I normally use for buns & cinnamon rolls. You can use either warm or cold liquid. If you use cold it will take a little longer for your dough to rise. I turn the oven light on & let my dough rise in there.You will end up with about 5 lbs of dough. This will be enough to make 40 - 2 oz dinner buns, or 24 - 2 oz dinner buns & a dozen fairly large cinnamon rolls. I use my Kitchen Aid mixer so I don't have to knead the dough. I use a scale when making my buns, then I am assured of getting a uniform size. While this is a bit more time consuming than some recipes, the end results are worth it. This is the dough that I use for my cinnamon rolls Recipe #447349 ."

Chef #8832636. My memebership on this site goes back to the days of recipezaar, so I have seen a lot of changes on the site over the years. I still miss the forums, they had a wealth of information in them, and it was great to be able to connect with other chefs through them. I don't think zmail exists anymore either, so I don't think we have any way of contacting other chefs now. I haven't been on the site much in the last few years, mainly because of the changes. I do still pop in to look for specific recipes. I enjoy cooking, and am passionate about baking.
