Cooking 00:15 mins

Recipe ingredients:

  • 1 cup water, plus
  • 1 tablespoon water (70-80 f)
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 1⁄2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 1⁄4 cups bread flour
  • 1⁄4 cup sugar
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 1⁄4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter (for dinner rolls only) (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons shortening (for dinner rolls only) (optional)

Preparation of the recipe:

In bread machine pan, place all ingredients from flour through yeast in order as recommended by the manufacturer.

Select the basic bread setting.

Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing, if needed add 1-2T of water or flour.

Bake as normal.

For dinner rolls.

Mix in bread machine but use only the dough option.

Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan (I always use a metal pan).

When dough is finished shape into 15 uniformly sized balls. I always grease my hands with shortening to smooth the dough out and it helps keep the dough from drying out.

Cover and let the rolls rise in a warm, draft free place until risen to the desired size.

I let them about double in size.

Bake in a 350° oven about 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

After removing from the oven, brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter.

Take out of pan and let completely cool before storing.
