Recipe Source: Bakingyummies
400 grams / 14 ounces all purpose or plain flour
2 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 + 1/2 teaspoons regular salt
1+1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
210 grams / 7.4fl ounces water at room temperature
2 tablespoons melted butter to brush on top of the baked buns

Knock back the dough. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
Divide the dough into twelve equal size pieces. Shape each piece into a round and smooth it by pressing the ball to expel any air bubbles. Now form your palm into a cup shape and roll the ball against the counter with the help of the palm until it forms a smooth and round ball.
Place all the shaped balls on the baking sheet with about an inch gap between each. Cover the pan loosely with a cling film or a tea towel. At this stage if you want, you can place the pan in the refrigerator to be baked early in the morning or a day later.
Once the buns are almost double in size, preheat the oven to 200 degrees C / 390 degrees F. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 mins or until the rolls are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped at the bottom. Alternatively, you can check if the buns are done with a food thermometer as well. It should register at least 80 degrees C / 180 degrees F.
