Bread Baking Day #77: Buns and Rolls
During hot summer months, it's always a good idea to have a quick bread recipe at hand, one that has a minimal amount of effort. That was the challenge from Sandra at Snuggs Kitchen for the August edition of Bread Baking Day.
I knew just the recipe, one I've used for years, a yeasted bun that can be made at the last minute: Batter Buns.
There's really not much to add. These buns take relatively little time and are dependable and delicious.

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package or 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast .
1/4 cup soft butter or shortening
2/3 cup warm water
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
In a mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients (1 cup flour through yeast). Add the wet ingredients and mix, either by hand or machine, then add the remaining 2/3 cup flour and mix until smooth.
Spoon batter into greased muffin cups, filling each one a scant half full.
Let rise in a warm place for about 30-40 minutes, or until the batter reaches the top of the muffin cups.
Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes, or until the buns are golden brown. Serve warm.
Makes about 12 buns.
