I hope all of you read the Tulsa World today. I had a small article written about how I cook a turkey. Here is the link http://www.tulsaworld.com/scene/article.aspx?subjectid=39&articleid=20081119_39_D1_Thanks692385&archive=yes
I am so caught up with Thanksgiving I have not been able to take many pictures though, sorry. We are having these hot rolls tonight with a pork roast dinner, so picture taking was easy.
I love hot rolls and these are so good you will not believe it! Easy and good makes a difference when talking about bread making. I make A LOT of BREAD!! Raven loves homemade wheat bread and Sean loves all BREAD!! Ransome and Raine are the biscuit eaters, so I make those too. I am willing to share my hot roll recipe if you promise you will make them. Okay, here it is...
2 cups warm water
2 T of loose yeast or 2 envelops
½ cup of sugar
½ cup of butter, melted
2 large eggs, beaten
1 ½ t salt
6 cups of all purpose flour, sifted
Place water in a large bowl or your Kitchen Aid Mixer bowl, this is what I use. I love my Kitchen Aid mixer! Sprinkle yeast on top of water. Should foam up in 5 minutes. If it does not, your yeast may not be good. Once foaming adds sugar, eggs, salt, and butter. Mix for 3 minutes. Once that is mixed add flour 1 cup at time until well incorporated. Knead for 5 minutes. Brush bread dough with butter and cover for 1 hour or until it is doubled in size. I place mine on top of my stove to rise. Once raised, butter your baking pan. Break dough into 3-inch balls and roll in your hand until smooth. This dough is a little sticky, so add a little flour to your hands. Put into pan and brush each roll with melted butter. Cover with plastic wrap and let double in size, this usually will happen in 1 hour. Uncover and bake at 400’ for 35- 40 minutes and they are golden brown.
These are soo good and easy but they don’t look easy when served. Now get baking!!
