I know that there are thousands of bread recipes.  But  I love this recipe, it is quick easy and so far fail proof.  I have made it hundreds of times and they always turn out,  so in my book it is a keeper! I also like it because you do not have to knead the dough.  I have a lot of problems with pain in my wrists, so it works best for me.  My girls and I love cooking together, some times it would be faster or less messy without their help…. but I feel it is best to let them help while they are still eager to learn.

In large bowl add

  • 2 cups warm water ( if it is too hot or too cold…you will kill the yeast.  So make sure it is warm)
  • 2 TBS yeast
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Give it a few minutes in the bowl, to make sure your yeast is working.

Then add:

  • 3 eggs whipped lightly
  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Sometimes I add 1/2 cup of apple sauce to make them extra moist, in place of part of the butter.

Mix well….

Start to whisk in the flour one cup at a time ( for a total of 6 cups) you will also need 1/2- 1 cup  when you shape the rolls.

IMG_1906

You will need to switch over to a spoon to mix with,  on about cup 4 of flour.

Dough WILL be sticky, scrap down the sides of the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a towel…I use both.

IMG_1912

Set aside in a warm place, (like a sunny window seat) and allow to raise.  Till doubled in size. ( if you are in a hurry let rise 20 mins other wise let it rise 60 mins).  Works best to wait the full 60 mins.

IMG_1915

Take off the plastic wrap, punch down to get the air out.  You will need to dust with flour.

IMG_1919

Take out HALF the dough, spread on floured counter top. With your hands make  into a circle.  Keep dusting with flour so it is easy to work with. ( do the same with the other half of dough) I have found it is just easier to work with only half at a time.

IMG_1920

Cut into wedges, and roll up in to crescent roll shape.  Or you can just make balls  in the shape of dinner rolls.

IMG_1921

Place them on a greased pan, Bake 400 degrees 10-12 mins

IMG_1924

Once cooked, brush a bit of butter on top to give them a nice shine.  Take off baking sheet, cool on cooling rack.

Last but not least enjoy!

Jan Whalen Morgan

I love how you use the “by feel” on adding flour. I use this method when making 200 dozen cinnamon rolls for a Church fundraiser AND pie dough for 20 – 25 apple pies. (Why dirty up the kitchen more than one day). We then freeze the pies uncooked and bake them as needed through the year.

Alicia G. Haynes
