8 c. warm milk
3 c. butter or oil (butter melted)
3 c. sugar ( I cut down)
8 t. salt
4 T. yeast dissolved in 2 c. warm water
16 c. flour
Melt butter in hot milk. Beat sugar, eggs, and salt together Add to milk
mixture Cook to lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in water.
Add to milk mixture. Beat
in flour slowly, beating 10 min. (This is very hard to do, so I do not do
this the last while for as long. I made one batch this year doing this and
on one batch without. It made no difference as long as you beat it for a
good bit of time before all the flour was in)
Add about 12 more cups of flour more or less. Dough should not be so hard
you cannot stir with a spoon. Let rise until double.
Shape into rolls and
let raise again. Bake about 10-12 min each in small round pans or longer
for bigger pans. Be sure to not over bake as then they tend to be dry.
Frost if desired.
I like to make a maple flavored frosting, but some people like cream cheese icing.
