Simple sweet bun

This summer has been a crazy summer. Between travels and visitors, we hardly ate at home. Even if we were at home, we were using the grill. My poor kitchen especially all the baking gadgets have been gathering cobwebs. But now, summer is officially over for us since the litte one will start preschool next week. We have been just trying to have a calm week and settle down before all the school-related activities begin. I also figured it is time to dust off the cobwebs and start baking again. What better way to start off than a batch of fresh baked buns?

A friend asked me how to shape the buns to be like those dinner rolls that you can peel apart and eat. So I will attempt to show how I do it. I start off by making my usual basic sweet bread dough in my breadmaker. After the 1st rise, I remove the dough from the breadmaker, divide into 9 equal portions and place in a square pan like below.

Leave it to proof for about 1 hour. This is how it look like. I would proof it just a little longer if I have more time.

Then heat oven to 375F and bake for 10-15 mins. Remove and brush the top with a little melted butter.

    Since I do not have a breadmaker, do i have to knead the dough for 30mins? That is a lot of work! Bummer.

    Depends on how strong your hand muscles are! hehehe….. Actually no need that long. Probably about 15 mins. Check here for more details: http://www.baking911.com/bread/101_knead.html
