Best Sweet Yeast Rolls

Sunday, November 8, 2015
I took the easy way out for baking and used a muffin tin. These could have been spectacular looking had I brushed them with butter. I just have to say, they needed nothing else. The aroma was fabulous, the texture perfect and these are sweet and light, what more could you ask for! A mixture of butter, cinnamon and sugar to spread on. We ate them before that even happened. This recipe is a keeper.

Favorite Rolls



We used to have a Restaurant here called Duffy's and went there often.


They served buckets of roasted peanuts in the shells and they were all over the floors in there.


Served with out meals were these big soft fluffy rolls that came with a bowl of butter flavored with cinnamon and sugar mixed in it.


These are similar and addicting sweet rolls like theirs.

Versatile Dough



This dough is very versatile, sweet to savory, it all depends on how you serve it.


I will give you some suggestions below that I do to change it up.

Sandwiches



These made in the muffin tins are high enough where they are great sweet rolls for pulled pork and other sandwiches you like.


I have used them for tuna and egg salad also.

Easy to Make



The recipe calls for rolling them cutting them in a rectangular shape and adding them in a pan just touching a little bit.


I do mine in cupcake tins and they came out perfect!


I always try to take the easy way out.

Tips and Suggestions



If you do them in a large baking pan, brush them with melted butter as soon as them come out.


Sometimes for a change I sprinkle Italian herbs and some parmesan cheese along with garlic powder on them for dinner.


You can even add chopped olives and herbs right into the dough for a more savory dough.

The Butter or Plain?


Seriously I love the taste of these rolls plain but they always served in a bowl of cinnamon sugared butter.


Then you slather it on and it melts and oozes all over the rolls.


Sometimes we eat so many, we are full before dinner.


These actually are delicious for breakfast.


Just split them open and broil them, they are best served warm!


They always come to the tables piping hot!

Best Sweet Yeast Roll

prep time: 10 mins
cook time: 25 mins
total time: 35 mins
These are a really soft and fluffy sweet roll great with butter cinnamon and sugar spread on them.

ingredients:

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup half and half or whole milk
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup warm water
2 extra large eggs beaten
2- packages dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 1/2 cups flour

instructions:

Place the half and half and butter in a large glass measuring cup, microwave till warm around 10 seconds, depending on your microwave wattage, it should be warm to touch not hot. Add the sugar, salt and stir to dissolve. Let stand till cool.

In a bowl of an industrial electric mixer,  add 1/2 cup warm water and yeast stir to dissolve. 

Add 2 1/2 cups of flour then eggs and mix together.  

Add the milk mixture and rest of the remaining flour and beaten until smooth and elastic.

Place in a warm spot covered until it is doubled in size. Use around 3 tablespoons of dough to make rounds rolls and place in buttered muffin tins or a large greased baking pan where they barely touch each other. 

Bake in a preheated oven for around 25 minutes or till lightly browned.

Serve these rolls warm. 

Whip the(1/2 cup or more) butter then add a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 tablespoon sugar to the butter and mix it together to taste (I like more cinnamon than sugar)  Place the mixture of butter in a small serving dish and spread on warm rolls or eat the rolls plain.

  6. This looks like a great, all-purpose muffin recipe for dinner. I really like that you bake these in a muffin tin so they have even more height. Perfect for slathering with butter or eating with a big bowl of soup!
