This bread was very popular during the depression when ingredients were scarce and everyone made their own bread.
1 cup of luke warm water
1 1/2 tsp of sugar
1 pkg of yeast (granular)
1 tsp of salt
1 tsp of vegetable oil
3 cups of white flour
Mix water with sugar until dissolved. Add yeast, salt and tsp of oil.
Pour in a cup of flour and stir until well mixed. Add 2nd cup of flour, empty dough out onto a floured smooth surface and begin kneading with hands. Knead dough until it begins to look smooth. ( it doesn't take very long) Put dough into a bowl that has been lightly coated with oil. Turn dough over in bowl to coat and let rise in a warm place till almost tripled in size. (about 1 1/2 hours) Turn out and make about 10 small rolls. Place in an oiled round cake pan and let rise until doubled.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 mins or until a light golden brown. Butter top of rolls when you take out of oven.
