The last time I made these buns I ended up making two batches. I have found with my bread machine that I need to check the status of the bread dough in the first ten minutes or so to see if the dough is “wet” enough or if it’s too “wet” and I need to add a little extra flour. Temperature and humidity affect the dough texture. For my first batch the dough was too wet and it was too late for me to add extra flour. When I rolled the dough out it was extremely sticky and difficult to form into rounds. I wasn’t sure if they would turn out well so I went ahead and prepared a second batch of dough. I ended up baking both batches and the first one did not rise as well and wasn’t as light and fluffy. This was the first time I had a problem with the dough. My family, however, gobbled up both batches!
Serve with your choice of toppings and side dishes. Take my word for it, this recipe is worth a little bit of work.
