TEXAS ROAD HOUSE ROLLS..partly made in bread machine.
4 teaspoons dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups milk, scalded and cooled
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
7 cups flour
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons salt
extra melted butter (for basting)
Combine yeast, sugar and lukewarm water in a bowl and let stand for 10 minutes (or until yeast starts to foam and bubble).
add milk, and sugar to yeast mix and stir till well combined.
stir in eggs and butter.
tip liquid into bread machine basket.
add the flour and salt.
set machine to sweet setting. let machine knead and rise the dough. remove dough when it has risen, 1 1/2 - 2 hours. (see notes below. make sure it doesn't get to cook mode lol)
punch down and tip dough onto a lightly floured board. flatten with hands into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick (1.27cm)
cut dough into 24 pieces and form into desired shape. place pieces on 2 baking trays lined with baking paper.
cover trays with a tea towel and place in a warm place for dough to rise and double in size.
heat oven to 180 c and cook for 10 - 15 minutes or until tops are golden.
remove from oven and baste immediately with melted butter.
to scald milk, place milk in pot on stove over medium heat. allow to heat until small bubbles form around edge of milk(touching saucepan). do not boil.
My bread machine timer starts at 3.27 but when the timer got to 2.00, I had to take the dough out because it had hit the lid.
(my normal bread dough takes about 2 hours to get to that.)
I don't know about other machines, but mine only mixes dough on the dough setting, doesn't rise it hence it has to go onto a cook cycle.
