    In a medium size metal sauce pan combine water, buttermilk and oil.  heat to 120 degrees.  
    Add the heated ingredients to the flour mixture.  Beat 4 minutes on medium speed.  Gradually add enough remaining flour until you have a soft dough.  Knead with a bread hook until smooth.  The dough will be soft and supple.
    Place the dough in an oiled bowl, turn to coat the dough, cover the bowl with a clean cloth.  Place the bowl in a warm oven, turn the oven to the lowest temperature on the dial and let the oven heat up for 1 or two minutes then turn it off.  Place the dough in the oven for 15 minutes to rise.
    After the dough has risen , press the dough into a greased 9 inch square baking pan. Lightly sprinkle flour over top of the dough, with a sharp knife cut the dough into 12 rolls, cutting almost to the bottom of the pan.  Cover and let the dough rise in a warm place.  The dough has risen enough when you touch the dough with your finger and the indentation from it remains.  Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until the roll tops are golden brown.  Remove the rolls from the pan, serve.
