Quick Yeast Buns

These buns were a favourite when my kids were little and then the recipe was lost. I recently found it in an old cookbook.


1 dozen

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 pkg yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp soft shortening or margarine


  1. Measure warm water into large warm bowl, and sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved. Stir in sugar, half the flour & salt, beat until smooth. Add egg and margarine. Beat in rest of flour until smooth. Scrape down sides of bowl, cover and let rise in warm place until double in bulk, about 30 min. Stir down dough. Spoon into 12 large muffin cups which have been greased, fill 1/2 full. Let rise again until dough reaches top of muffin tin, 20 to 30 min. Bake at 400 degrees about 15 min.
