 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  cups          warm water
    5      teaspoons     dry yeast
    1      pinch         sugar
      1/3  cup           oil
      1/2  cup           sugar
    2 1/2  teaspoons     salt
      1/4  teaspoon      malt powder or syrup -- (*) optional (gives
                         rich flavor)
    6      cups          -- approximately,
                         bread flour
                         milk for brushing
                         sesame seeds
 Place water, yeast and pinch of sugar in bread machine pan and let stand
 for a couple of minutes. Add in remaining ingredients in order given.
 Place machine on dough mode. When cycle is over, remove dough from
 machine. Gently deflate. Divide dough in 8-10 portions, cover with a
 clean tea towel and let rest five minutes. Shape each portion into a
 ball and place, evenly spaced apart, on a parchment paper lined baking
 sheet. Insert entire sheet in a large plastic bag (like a garbage bag).
 Allow to rise until quite puffy, around 20-30 minutes. Remove from
 plastic bag. Flatten each roll gently with palm of hand.
 Brush, if desired with milk and sprinkle on sesame seeds. Preheat oven
 to 375 F. Bake, until nicely browned, around 15-20 minutes. Freeze
 8-10 Rolls or Buns
 (*) Malt powder can be found in health food stores or you can substitute
 a teaspoon of barley malt syrup, found in home beer brewing stores, and
 health food stores. King Arthur Flour catalog sells dried and syrup
 forms. Lisa :O)
 Notes:     (So-much-better-than-store-bought homemade hamburger buns
 from your bread machine).
 This is a deceptively simple, but enriched white bread, grandma-style
 dough. Small additions such as malt (if you don't have it, leave it out
 but check sources before abandoning it prematurely, it’s worth the
 addition), a touch more sugar, and oil make the sort of dough that
 commercial bakeries fashion their hamburger rolls with - only these
 taste a million times better. In fact, the malt, sugar, and oil, in
 fact, are responsible for the wholesome flavor but more importantly,
 contribute to nice, even browning on these rolls - so characteristic of
 commercial hamburger rolls. Easily made in the bread machine on Dough
 Cycle, then plucked out and shaped into rolls, this recipe makes
 incredible, wonderfully spongy and flavor-packed, SUBSTANTIAL hamburger
 rolls take the average barbecued hamburger supper up a notch. You need a
 bread machine capacity of at least 1 1/2 pounds to make this recipe.
