2 Tbsp yeast
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
1 egg
1 tsp salt
3 – 3 1/2 cups flour

How to make it

In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar and yeast in the warm water. Let stand for 5 minutes. Add the oil, egg, salt and enough flour to form a soft dough.

Knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes. Divide into 8 pieces and roll each piece into a smooth ball. Place 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets.

Cover and let rest for 40 minutes. Bake at 425° for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.

Yield: 8 buns
