Thanksgiving is just around the corner so I’m posting just a few recipes for you all to try. Last Thanksgiving I didn’t post any meals, mostly because I had just been blogging for a few months, I was also tying to balance having a 1-year-old, working full-time and blogging. It was very hard, I didn’t have a lot of time of energy to post much. Today has been a cold and rainy day, the type of weather perfect for staying indoors and cuddled up under a warm blanket, I could resist making warm rolls. Anything warm in the fall is heaven right. This milk and honey rolls are all I need this thanksgiving, I can admit that I am a bread addict, I’ve tried giving up bread but I fail miserably haha.
These rolls are yummy, fluffy and super easy to make. All it takes if a few ingredients, a few minutes for preparation and 3 hours to rise. It taste better than already made store-bought rolls, which usually have ingredients we cannot pronounce, this is why I am in the grocery store for hours on end. I like to read labels haha, yes I am one of those people. I generally wont buy if I don’t know what an ingredient is, most of my friends think I am weird for that, but I don’t really care. I also can’t stand the awful after taste some of the frozen ones have along with freezer burn, yuck. Honey and milk are the star ingredients here. You can use any milk of choice, as i prefer to use 2% milk. I have another version of his already posted, it is naturally leavened, I realize that most people do not have a sourdough starter, so I decided to create the same bread that you can make with regular active dry yeast. This bread can last up to 3 days, need to reheat for a few seconds, It is taste tested by my coworkers who gave their stamp of approval. So trust the postpartum nurses and try this recipe. Don’t forget to comment.
|Prep Time||10-15 min|
|Cook Time||25 min|
|Passive Time||4-6 hours|
- 3.5 cups all purpose flour I use king Arthur Flour
- 1 1/4 cup 2% milk You can use whole milk. I use Fairlife % milk
- 1 packet active dry yeast 2 1/4 tsp, or you can use rapid rise
- 1/3 + 2 cup + tbsp honey I use organic honey from Costco (Kirkland)
- 2 tbsp melted unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1.5 tsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp warm water to dissolve yeast
- 2 tbsp melted butter to brush on top
- 1 tbsp honey to brush on top
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1 tbsp of water, let sit for 10 min or until it sarts to bubble.
- Heat milk for 1 min, add honey, and butter, mix well. Make sure milk is not hot, so you don't kill the yeast.
- In a separate bowl, mix flour and salt together.
- Add milk to yeast, mix slightly and place in a mixing bowl with dough attachment. Add flour mix and knead for 7 minutes.
- When dough is done kneading, it should be soft and plyable.
- Rub your hands with oil, divide dough in 12-18 balls, depending on how big you wants them.
- Place each ball in your palm, and onw at a time fold each side inward, you get a nice round ball. Place the side you folded facing down in a buttered dish of choice. I used a round pie dish. You want to place the balls close together in the middle of the pan. That way when it rises, they stick together and have room.
- Cover with plastic and place in warm spot for 4-6 hrs. To cut down the rising time, you could preheat your oven to 100 and place them in to rise, or if you have an oven that has a breadproof setting like my oven, turn it on and place rolls in oven to rise. You can also use rapid rise yeast for faster rise. I like to late them rise overnight.
- Once your rolls have proofed, Make sure you oven is pre heated at 350 degrees.
- Brush top with 1 tbsp of melted unsalted butter. Bake rolls for 25 min.
- Once you remove your rolls from the oven brush top with a mix oh 1 tbsp of honey and 1 tbsp of melted butter.
- Let cool slightly and enjoy. These are s good you may not be able to wait for them to cool. Good for up to three days. Reheat to soften.
