Prepare ingredients for the dough.
Combine all ingredients together, except for the flour. Whisk until well combined.
Using the spatula, stir in flour. I typically stir in half of the flour at a time. Cover and let it sit overnight in a room temperature.
The next day the dough will be bubbly and light. Place it on a floured surface.
Roll out the dough into a rectangular shape. Apply melted butter and sugar evenly on it.
Cut the dough into even size piece, I got 15 pieces out of mine. Butter the baking sheet generously.
Place the buns onto a baking sheet, they will have plenty of space between, but they will rise as you see in the picture.
Preheat oven to 350F, let it bake for 35-40 minutes, until golden brown.
