1/2 cup sugar
2 cups hot water
2 TBSP yeast
3/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp salt
5 cups flour
Add the sugar, hot water and yeast together. Let them bubble for a couple of minutes (3-5).
Put the melted butter, eggs and salt into a kitchenAid and mix them together. Add the yeast mixture followed by the flour. Stir until combined. Dough will be very wet and sticky.
Dump a very generous heap of flour onto the counter. Pour the dough onto the flour. Turn the dough once to coat.
Leave it alone and let it rise for 3 hours.
After 3 hours have passed, use a round glass or biscuit cutter to cut the dough into rounds. Fold the rounds in half and put them on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake them at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes watching closely. Serve blonde and warm.
These are fantastic! They really are just puffy clouds of happiness and they disappear as fast as clouds in the desert. Thanks for sharing Jamie J!!!
