Place all ingredients in a spiral mixer and blend on its first speed for 2 minutes and then for an additional 7 minutes on your mixer’s second speed, or until dough is fully developed.


Next, let the dough rest for 15 minutes before dividing dough into 1.8 oz (50 g) portions for round buns or 2.1 oz (60 g) portions for hot dog buns. Shape and let the dough rest for 10 minutes.


Next, proof rolls in a proofer set to 100°F (38°C) with 70 percent humidity for 75 to 85 minutes. Then, transfer to a preheated 375°F (190°C) oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Rolls are ready when they’re golden brown. Remove and let cool.
