This is my Gramma’s recipe, and makes excellent bread/buns. The great thing about this recipe is that it's very versatile. You can easily make it your own with a few additional ingredients.
1.5 cups lukewarm water
1 ¼ tsp yeast
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp skim milk powder
1 ½ tsp salt
2 ½ tbsp margarine
4 cups flour (any combo*)
Place lukewarm water in bread maker. Add yeast, followed by the rest of the ingredients. Set your bread maker to make dough only.
Once dough is ready, transfer to a buttered bread dish (this recipe will make 1 large loaf or 2 small loaves). Cover with a tea towel and let rise, approximately 30 minutes.
Bake in 375 F oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
Once dough is ready, separate into 12 balls placing on two buttered cookie sheets. Cover with a tea towel and let rise, approximately 30 minutes.
Bake in 375 F oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
* Flour Combinations: I usually use 2 cups multigrain flour and 2 cups white bread flour. Sometimes I displace 1/4 cup of the multigrain flour with rolled oats and flax seeds, or my Gramma's favourite, 7 grain (you can purchase this in your bulk food section).
