Bread, Bread Machine
2 1/4 tsp yeast (or one packet)
3 1/4 cup bread flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
4 1/2 tsp oil
1 large egg
1 cup plus 1 Tblsp. warm water
In bread machine pan, place all ingredients from flour through yeast in order as recommended by the manufacturer.
Select the basic bread setting.
Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing, if needed add 1-2T of water or flour.
Bake as normal.
For dinner rolls.
Mix in bread machine but use only the dough option.
Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan (I always use a metal pan).
When dough is finished shape into 15 uniformly sized balls. I always grease my hands with shortening to smooth the dough out and it helps keep the dough from drying out.
Cover and let the rolls rise in a warm, draft free place until risen to the desired size.
I let them about double in size.
Bake in a 350° oven about 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
After removing from the oven, brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter.
Take out of pan and let completely cool before storing.
