  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  1. Combine all dough ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Mix and knead until a soft, smooth dough is formed using your hands, a stand mixer or a bread machine set on the dough cycle.
  3. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl and allow the rough to rise for 1½ to 2 hours, until doubled in bulk.
  4. Gently punch down the dough and transfer to a lightly greased work surface.
  5. Roll and shape the dough into a 12" x 16" rectangle. Brush 2 tablespoons butter onto the dough's surface.
  6. Starting with the long side, carefully roll the dough into a log.
  7. Cut the log in 1" slices using a sharp knife.
  8. Lightly grease two round cake pans. Arrange 8 buns in each pan.
  9. Cover and let the buns rise for 60 minutes. At 45 minutes, preheat the oven to 350° F (177° C).
  10. Uncover the pans and brush each bun with butter.
  11. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  12. Remove from oven and turn onto a cooling rack. Brush with any remaining butter. Serve hot or warm.
  13. ENJOY!
Recipe Notes

If you have an 8-cup measuring cup, grease the insides and let the dough rise in there. You'll be able to see how much to rises.
