Source:  Foodwishes.blogspot


1 pkt yeast
1/4 cup warm water
3 tbsp butter
1 egg
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 tbsp sugar
3 cup flour plus more for dusting

Mix the yeast and warm water and 1 tbsp of sugar.  Leave in warm place to froth.  Meanwhile warm the milk and melt butter.

Add the balance sugar, lightly beaten egg and warmed milk to the yeast mixture.  Add in 1 cup of flour.  Stir with a whisk.  Slowly add in 1 more cup of flour and stir with a spatula, then the final 1 cup of flour.  Stir till everything is combined. Throw the flour over onto a floured surface.  Knead for about 7 minutes.  Add in sprinkles of flour whenever it sticks to your hands.

Lightly oil a bowl and put the dough in to rise in a warm place for about 1 1/2 hour or till it doubles.

Once risen, punch down the dough and let rise for about 5 minutes.  Divide the dough into 12 rolls.  Place them in a 9 by 13 in baking glass dish.  Leave about 1 1/2 in apart.  Leave it to rise for about 30 minutes.  Glaze the top with 1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp of water.

Bake for about 25 minutes until golden brown.
