I modify this recipe by replacing butter with canola oil, and the milk powder with baked potato (you can use potato flakes too). Also- to make hot dog buns make snakes the same size as a hot dog- they rise all directions! I normally get 8 hot dog buns and 2 hamburger ones out of a recipe..
Place all ingredients except for the ingredients in the "Add at Beep" area (if applicable for this recipe) in to your machines fully assembled pan. Select the "dough" or "manual" cycle and press start.
10 minutes after your machine has started kneading the dough open the lid and check the consistency of the dough. The dough should be tacky to the touch like the sticky part of a Post-It Note™. If the bread is too dry add 1 tbsp. of water at a time allowing a minute or two of kneading then check it again. If needed add another tablespoon of liquid. Repeat this until the dough reaches the proper consistency. If the dough is too dry apply the above steps but using flour instead of liquid.
Note: Just because you had to make this adjustment doesn't mean there is something wrong with the recipe or your machine. The weather plays an important part on bread making, and adjustments you make one time may not be the same adjustments you make next time. This is why it is important to check the dough consistency.
Once you have checked and if needed adjusted the dough close the lid of your machine allow the cycle to continue.
Add at Beep Ingredients
If this recipe has an "Add at Beep" section these ingredients need to be added at your machines add ingredients beep signal (an option on most bread machines) or during the last 10 minutes of the kneading part of the cycle. The reason you don't add them at the beginning is to prevent them from being broken down in to tiny bits or mashed in to a paste.
The Dough is Done
After the machine has beeped to indicate the dough is done, remove the dough and divide dough into 9 equal pieces. Form each piece into smooth ball. Place on large greased baking sheet. Flatten balls into 4-inch rounds; cover. Let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, 20 to 30 minutes. Lightly beat egg white and 1 tablespoon water. Brush on buns. Sprinkle with sesame seed. Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes or until done. Makes up to 9 buns.
Follow the directions above for making the dough, shaping and rising the buns. Then preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit with the HearthKit in place 15 minutes before you plan to bake the buns. Uncover the pan of rolls, apply any crust enhancements you wish to them and then place in the preheated oven in the middle of the HearthKit. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the buns are golden brown, you can also check it with an instant read thermometer the buns are done when it is at 200 degrees Fahrenheit internally (for wet dough's 210 to 215 is better). When the buns are done remove them from the oven, remove them from the pan and place them on a wire rack to cool. Cool at least 20 minutes before slicing.
