Overnight buns

1 pkg. quick-rising yeast

½ cup lukewarm water

1 tsp. granulated sugar

½ cup oil

¾ cup granulated sugar

4 eggs, well beaten

2 tsp. salt

2 ½ cups warm water

10 cups flour

At 6pm, dissolve yeast in ½ cup water with 1 tsp. sugar.  Let stand about 12 minutes.  Beat eggs, sugar and salt with oil.  Add warm water and stir in yeast mixture. Work about 10 cups of flour into the mixture, mixing until medium stiff.

Let rise in a greased bowl for 1 hour.  Punch down at 1 hour intervals four times.  Make into rolls and put into greased pans (muffin tins, cake pans –whatever you have!). Cover with a clean dish towel. Bake in the morning at 375◦ for 12 minutes. Makes about 6 dozen rolls.
