Butter Rich Roll and Bread Dough

1 cup water-room temperature.  I put use regular tap water heated in microwave for 20 sec.  1 egg beaten.  1/4 cup butter-cut into cubes, 3 1/4 cups bread flour (I use 1 cup fresh ground wheat flour and 2 1/4 cups bread flour), 4 tbsp sugar, 3 tbsp powdered milk, 1 tsp salt, and 1 1/2 tsp yeast placed in the center of the pan.  Set bread machine on dough cycle. 

When cycle is finished, turn dough out on floured surface.  Knead slightly, just enough to punch down dough.  Choose now what you want to make with your dough.  If making dinner rolls or hamburger buns, shape small sections of dough into round shapes.  This will make about 15 rolls depending on how large or small you make them.  Place rolls on cookie sheet, spray tops with oil spray.  Let rise 1 hr.  Bake at 400 for 12 min. Remove from oven.   Brush tops generously with melted butter.  Enjoy!!

Roll Recipe

I use my Zojirushi bread machine to make the dough for my rolls.  I put 1 cup lukewarm water into the machine, 1/4 cup butter-cut into chunks, 1egg beaten, 3 1/4 cups bread flour, 4 tbsp sugar, 3 tbsp powdered milk, 1tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp yeast.  Set the machine to dough cycle and walk away.  It takes the machine l hr 50 min. to run through this cycle.  Then I take the dough out, punch it down and form the rolls.  I get about 15 rolls from 1 batch.  Then I spray them with olive oil and let them rise for about 1 hr.  Bake 12 min. at 425 degrees.  When I take them out of the oven, I brush them with melted butter(being generous with the butter).  Half of these never make it to the table.  They get eaten as soon as the butter is spread on them.  One thing I do a little different from this recipe is I put 1 1/4 cup fresh ground wheat flour and 2 cups bread flour instead of using all bread flour.  I also have lowered my heat to 400 degrees because the pans I use are darker pans.  I have just discovered they do so much better using 3 round cake pans-8 rolls per pan than they do on a cookie sheet.  Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we do.  God bless.

More Snow Pictures

A picture of the field.  I was hoping it would show how the sun was glistening off the snow.  It was absolutely beautiful.100_2820

Our road after the tractor had made a path.100_2822

Going up the hill beside the hay barn.  Yes, that brown spot proves there is still dirt under all this snow.

Guess what?  We’re supposed to get more snow tomorrow.  Not much though-about 3″.  After all this, we probably won’t even notice 3 more inches.  Anyway, we have company coming over today.  My brother-in-law and his wife are coming.  I made homemade vegetable beef soup(cooked on the wood stove, of course)and I’m making  rolls as I type this.  I use my bread machine to mix and knead the dough.  I love this machine.  It is a Zojirushi.     100_2827

I bought it used several years ago and consider it a very valuable helper.  I put 1 cup lukewarm water into the machine, 1/4 cup butter-cut into chunks, 1egg beaten, 3 1/4 cups bread flour, 4 tbsp sugar, 3 tbsp powdered milk, 1tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp yeast.  Set the machine to dough cycle and walk away.  It takes the machine l hr 50 min. to run through this cycle.  Then I take the dough out, punch it down and form the rolls.  I get about 15 rolls from 1 batch.  Then I spray them with olive oil and let them rise for about 1 hr.  Bake 12 min. at 425 degrees.  When I take them out of the oven, I brush them with melted butter(being generous with the butter).  Half of these never make it to the table.  They get eaten as soon as the butter is spread on them.  One thing I do a little different from this recipe is I put 1 1/4 cup fresh ground wheat flour and 2 cups bread flour instead of using all bread flour.  My family doesn’t care a lot for whole wheat so I mix it.  I guess I better go check on my rolls and get ready for company.  God Bless.
