What I did was I used real butter and honey instead of sugar. I mixed all the liquids with the yeast and pour into the flour as the kitchen-aid went on the lowest setting (I never proof my yeast, I know it is good). Let it go for about 8 minutes. It is a wet kind of sticky dough. Almost greasy, I don't think you want to add flour to make it ball up like your standard white loaf, just not that type of dough. I greased up my hands to form a ball and let rise in the oven in the kitchen aid bowl after getting the chill out of the oven first. It just did not want to rise on my counter, too chilly I guess. I knocked it down once and then knocked it down an hour later and divided it in to 6ths with greased hands. I put three per greased round cake pan after rolling into a ball and giving a little smoosh. Beat an egg and brushed the tops and sprinkled with sesame seeds before letting the buns rise. In a kitchen hot with cooking they rose in no time and were huge, baked even bigger taking up the whole pan. We used these for pulled BBQ. They were so good, giant, soft, tall, tender and flavorful. I think the real butter and honey made it. I am just not a huge fan of sugar in my bread. I am going to try it my way on kolachies next.
