No Rise Rolls
My sister brought me this recipe after having these rolls at the Conestoga Steak House in Dothan, AL. They are a yeast roll that doesn’t have to rise and they’re a snap to mix up and to bake.
1 package yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
2 cups warm water
4 cups self-rising flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 sticks melted butter
Add yeast to water and let it bloom. Maybe I was having a slow day in the kitchen. But I stood over the bowl and watched it after I put the yeast in the water. Now I’ve “bloomed” plenty of yeast. But I’ve never watched the whole process. First, a few bubbles appear. Then a few more. Then, the whole thing takes off like it’s a mole digging underground. It’s the coolest thing. Glad I watched it.
Add remaining ingredient to the bowl, after the yeast has bloomed, adding fllour last. Mix and pour into greased muffin tins. I made 20 rolls out of this batch.
This doesn’t make a light and airy yeast roll. It’s a little bit denser but has a great taste.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Pass the butter.
