Mom's Bun Recipe

This makes a slightly heavier bun, and can also be used for bread.

mix:
1 cup lukewarm water
1 Tbsp white sugar
2 Tbsp yeast granules

let stand while you drink your coffee (approximately ten minutes).

by that time, yeast will have risen to water. stir until blended &
yeast is dissolved.

stir in:
2 cups of lukewarm water
1/2 cup white sugar (1 cup for buns)
heaping Tbsp salt (or a little less)
1/2 cup melted butter or salad oil

beat

stir flour in one cup at a time, using approximately 9 cups of flour.
mix until dough hangs together but is floppy and a wee bit moist (may
need to add more flour). knead for about 10 minutes, until dough
seems smooth and elastic (it might have sticky spots).

put back in bowl. let rise. covered in a warm draft-free place for 1-2
hours or until doubled in size. punch down.
let rise again, until doubled in size.
roll into buns.
let rise (approximately 1/2 hour)
bake. 350 degree oven. until golden (about 20 minutes or less,
depending on the oven).
