A simple, light, fluffly, slightly sweet sandwich roll.
Serves: 8 Rolls
Ingredients
  • ¾ to 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 3½ cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
Instructions
  1. Mix and knead all of the dough ingredients — by hand, stand mixer to make a soft, smooth dough.
  2. Cover the dough, and let it rise for 1 to 2 hours, or until it's nearly doubled in bulk.
  3. Gently deflate the dough, and divide it into 8 pieces (about 100 grams each). Shape each piece into a round ball; flatten to about 3" across. Place the buns on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, cover, and let rise for about an hour, until noticeably puffy.
  4. Brush the buns with about half of the melted butter.
  5. Bake the buns in a preheated 375°F oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden. Remove them from the oven, and brush with the remaining melted butter. This will give the buns a satiny, buttery crust.
  6. Cool the buns on a rack.
