Recipe Ingredients:

2 teaspoons instant yeast
1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups warm water
2 large eggs, lightly beaten

  2. Cover dough and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes in warm place.
  3. Punch down, knead again for a few minutes; rub dough down with light layer of canola oil. Cover and let rest until time to form buns.
  4. Divide dough into 18 equal pieces and form into buns. Place on oiled or parchment lined baking sheet. Brush (or spray) buns with light coating of canola oil. Cover and let rise in until double in size.
  5. Bake buns at 350°F (175°C) for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

Makes 18 buns.
