12 buns


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, divided, or more as needed

  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages dry yeast

  • 1 cup milk

  • ¾ cup water

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Stir 2 cups flour and yeast together in a large bowl. Heat milk, water, oil, sugar, and salt together in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave until lukewarm; add to flour mixture and beat until smooth, about 3 minutes.

  2. Mix in 2 cups remaining flour, then add up to 1 cup more flour as necessary to make a soft dough. Dust a flat surface with flour; turn dough out onto floured surface and let rest under a bowl for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, lightly grease a baking sheet.

  3. Shape dough into 12 slightly flat balls and place on the prepared baking sheet to rise until doubled in size.

  4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
