Easy to make, assuming you have a bread machine. Ours looks like R2-D2.

Incidentally, our new machine is a Zojirushi--rectangular pan and normally takes more dough than this--but in this case this is still a good amount because it rises up all the way to the top anyway. I set it for regular dough, not quick-rise, but I'm wondering if quick might be OK too given the amount of yeast/flour, and you're going to let it rise again anyway.


  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/4 cup bread machine flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp dry bread machine yeast (maybe less for some machines)


  1. Set machine to sweet dough cycle (no bake) and add all ingredients as instructed for your machine
    1. for the old Dak machine, this usually involves putting yeast on bottom, flour next, rest of dry ingredients, then wet ingredients. For the Zo, it's the exact opposite!
  2. Allow machine to run until finished
  3. Preheat oven to 375 F (350 F for glass pan)
  4. Divide dough into 15 or 16 pieces. Make round (balls of dough)
  5. Grease cookie sheet or pan (11x17 glass is good)
  6. Place 2 in apart on sheet (can be less, in pan--they'll just get close together)
  7. Brush with margarine
  8. Cover, let rise til doubled (1-2 hours)
  9. Bake 12-15 minutes until lightly browned
  10. Brush tops with margarine if desired
