These were awesome, but I did make them the more tradition way. I heated up the water and a teaspoon of the sugar in the microwave for one minute and fifteen seconds. I then I added the yeast (a packet) and stirred it to make sure it was all dissolved. I waited for about 20 minutes for that to rise/foam up, then I heated up the milk and butter and salt. I put it in the microwave for about one minute and 15 seconds, just enough for the butter to melt. Make sure the mixture isn't too hot or it will kill your yeast. Then I added the milk & butter/salt mixture to the yeast and water, then I added the eggs and the rest of the sugar and I mixed it by stirring it. After that I add the flour (I used self rising flour) about a half cup at a time stirring to blend it until it is all in there. This mixture is very sticky, so I coat my hands with butter or oil and it makes it not stick to my hands while I knead it with my hands for about six to eight minutes. Then I let it rise in a dark warm place. I usually warm up a cup of water in the microwave for two minutes, then shove the dough (in its bowl) in there with it for about 30 to 60 minutes (all up to your patience). Then I fold the dough down, some people call it punching down, but I feel that is too rough. Then I let it rise again for about 30 minutes, then I take it out and form it into ball, while coating my hands again. I cooked it in the oven for 18 minutes. Turned out perfect, fluffy, but dense enough with great flavor.
