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.

Be sure and visit Sandra's website for the round-up, and Zorra's blog for the next bread baking adventure.

Batter Buns

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
1 egg
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.
