Feather Bread (Bread Maker - for Bread - Rolls - and Buns.)

Love baking bread and rolls. When wrists began to make kneading difficult I got a bread maker - my hand made Holiday Buns now only made for those special occasions when family gather. This recipe goes back to my first bread maker and is the one I turn to when needing fresh bread or rolls with the taste of old fashioned bread ... in my bread maker perfect bread every time which is a real plus when expecting guests. Great on the dough cycle for rolls and those recipes calling for frozen bread dough - especially for the pull apart breads. Just the right amount of dough to fill a bundt pan when making Manda's awesome Monkey Bread Monkey Balls. Do check your bread maker recipe book to assure it can make a dough using four cups of flour.
