Annie's Beautiful Buns and Bread


Dan has made this bread recipe a few times and it is the best bread recipe, ever. He has made it into a loaf of bread and buns. This recipe comes from Annie's Kitchen Garden. Annie makes this in a bread machine, which we do not have. If you want to use the bread machine Annie explains how to do it.


Home Style White Bread
Makes one loaf

Ingredients:

1 cup water (70 - 80 degrees)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine -- softened
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
3 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Directions:
First proof the yeast in warm water.
In Kitchen-Aid mixer combine all dry ingredients with dough hook.
Add the yeast and butter to flour mixture.
Mix until it pulls away from bowl and forms a ball.
Knead for 5 to 10 minutes while kneading you may need to add more water or flour until it forms a ball.
Then let it rise in a warm spot, until doubled in size.
Then you punch it down and divide into buns.
Take smooth side down of buns in your hand, pull the sides into the center and pinch it.
Place in baking pan 9"X 9" and let rise.
Use egg wash on top and sprinkle with poppy seeds.
Preheat oven to 400º, when you put the buns into oven turn down oven to 350º and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
