The Cast Iron Skillet Cookbook
The cast iron skillet heats so evenly that these rolls come out golden brown, with an amazing caramel sauce on the bottom. Serve the buns right from the skillet or invert them onto a serving plate. They are sticky and irresistible.

    To prepare the dough, dissolve the yeast in the warm  DOUGH
    water in a mixing bowl. Let rest for 5 minutes. Add cup of the "our, the granulated sugar, salt, vanilla, milk, and eggs to the yeast mixture. In a mixing bowl with dough hook attachment, mix on low speed or by hand until blended. Slowly add the remaining "our and mix well.
