One batch of sweet dough makes 12 buns.
3/4 cup buttermilk, warmed to about 110 degrees
6 tbsp unsalted butter, melted, then cooled
3 large eggs, beaten
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 envelope (2 1/4 tsp) rapid-rise yeast
1 1/4 tsp salt

Whisk the buttermilk, butter and eggs together in a large liquid measuring cup; set aside. Mix the flour, salt, sugar and yeast in the standing mixer bowl, using a dough hook, on low speed. Again, on low speed, add the buttermilk mixture and mix until the dough comes together, about one minute.
