Is it possible to have homemade rolls on the table in 30 minutes start to finish? I read about this recipe on Real Mom Kitchen blog and just had to give it a try! We had them for sunday dinner yesterday and true to their name they were on the table in 30 minutes. (OK OK they took a little more than 30 minutes for me–more like 45 minutes total—but still pretty fast)My boys LOVED them. They were a bit dense, but very soft with a nice smooth texture. I have to admit that I still like my favorite roll recipe the best ( buttermilk roll recipe found here which you can make the dough ahead of time and keep it in the fridge for up to a week until your ready to roll them out), BUT these were VERY good considering they are fast if you haven’t planned ahead. Next time I may try letting them rise for 20 minutes instead of 10, and see if they are a little lighter. So if you are short on time but want a warm, soft homemade roll–give these a try. I was very impressed!! Thanks Laura for sharing a great recipe!
Now I am off to explore the Tennesse Aquarium with my boys! Hope you all have a fun Labor Day!
