1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees)
1 tbsp bread machine yeast
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
4 cups bread flour
1. Pour the warm water into the bread machine pan. Add the yeast and sugar and allow to sit for about 10 minutes. It should turn a little creamy.
2. Add the oil, salt and flour and turn the bread machine on the dough cycle.
(I was a little surprised at how much the dough rose in the machine- it actually pushed open the lid!) 3. Punch down the dough and turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 16 pieces and roll into balls. Place dough balls on an oiled baking sheet. Cover with a damp towel and let rise. Since it wasn't too warm in the house, I heated the oven to 170 degrees (then turned it off) and put the covered dough in the oven for about 30 minutes. They REALLY rose too!
