I don’t know why, but I just can’t make rolls to save my life. Remember the Easy Homemade Rolls that Elyse shared a couple of months ago . . . yeah, I totally burned them. They were more like hockey pucks than rolls. I saw this recipe for 30 minute rolls over at Eat Cake for Dinner and decided that I would just try them . . . I loved that they didn’t take forever and didn’t have to rise for hours on end. And guess what? SUCCESS! My first batch of good-tasting, perfectly cooked rolls! I am so proud. And the really did only take about 30 minutes from start to finish!! Try them out for yourself!
30 Minute Rolls Recipe:
1 c. plus 2 Tbl. warm water
1/3 c. vegetable oil
2 Tbl. active dry yeast (yes, you read that right! 2 tablespoons!)
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine warm water, oil, yeast and sugar; let rest for 5-10 minutes or until frothy and bubbly. With a dough hook, mix in salt, egg and 2 cups of flour until combined. Add remaining 1/2 cup flour at a time (dough will be sticky). Spray your hands with cooking spray and shape the dough into 12 balls. After shaped, place on lightly greased cookie sheet and let rest for 10 minutes. Bake for about 10 minutes or until tops are lightly golden. Yield: 12 good-sized rolls. You can also use this same dough for cinnamon rolls!
