You can reduce the amount of sweetener, if you like less sweet buns. 
Incase you want to make with egg.. add 1 medium egg for every 125 gms or 1 cup of flour.
Kneading bread in  a mixer is very easy, saves all the muscle work. Follow the initial steps of mixing the dry ingredients with wet ingredients, and then knead till you get a smooth dough.
