This is a very easy bread recipe for buns. They resemble a good hamburger bun but they remain soft on the outside. If find when I make these I have people sitting around with the butter and a knife waiting on them to come out of the oven. I usually have a big pot of sloppy joe's on the stove and there's supper! These are great to take to a pot luck too!

How To Make twisted bread

  • 1
    Mix all ingredients in the order listed above in a large mixing bowl. I have a large crock bowl that I love to use.
  • 2
    Once all mixed, dump out on a floured board and knead to add the remaining amounts of flour needed to obtain a non sticky dough. The dough should be kneaded until it feels springy and when you knead this dough you will hear a cracking sound. When you hear this you've worked enough air into the dough.
  • 3
    Place the dough back into a greased bowl and slightly grease the top of the dough prior to covering with a light towel. Place the dough out of a draft and in a warm area but not on the stove!

    It will rise in 1 1/2 hours then make into round balls about the size of a fifty cent piece and place on a greased baking sheet. Cover with a light towel to rise slightly.
  • 5
    The rolls should be slightly larger prior to placing in the oven. Your looking for a slight rise.
  • 6
    Now place the baking sheet of rolls into a 375 Degree oven for 15 min. They should be a light golden brown.

    Remove from heat and brush the top of the buns with a mixture of butter and oil. I use real butter and olive oil! Wow what a taste!
