No Fail Bread/Sweet Bread

I'm sure MOST of you cooks have this recipe already, but since I am relatively new to the world of breadmaking, I was excited to have this recipe given to me. We all know and love Karina's yummy crescent rolls of perfection, but if you have a hankering for something a little sweeter, I'd give this recipe a try. You can use it to make sweet rolls (almost like the King's Hawaiian Rolls) or loaves. I just made it in loaves today, and found that I prefer the rolls.

Sweet Bread

5 cups flour
1 T dry yeast
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
2 cups warm water

Put flour in bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix for one minute, then let rest for 15 minutes. Resume mixing for 5-6 minutes, then place in oiled bowl. Cover, let rise until doubled in size (about 2 hours). Punch down, then shape into balls and place in oiled pan with sides touching. Let rise until doubled (about an hour). Bake rolls 15 minutes, loaves 30 minutes at 350. Butter tops while warm.
