“This is the recipe I normally use for buns & cinnamon rolls. You can use either warm or cold liquid. If you use cold it will take a little longer for your dough to rise. I turn the oven light on & let my dough rise in there.You will end up with about 5 lbs of dough. This will be enough to make 40 - 2 oz dinner buns, or 24 - 2 oz dinner buns & a dozen fairly large cinnamon rolls. I use my Kitchen Aid mixer so I don't have to knead the dough. I use a scale when making my buns, then I am assured of getting a uniform size. While this is a bit more time consuming than some recipes, the end results are worth it. This is the dough that I use for my cinnamon rolls Jake's Cinnamon Rolls .”
