There’s just something about making homemade bread that creates memories.
Memories that encompass every single one of our senses from the moment you start forming the loaf to the smell of baking bread floating throughout the home to the taste of buttered bread melting in your mouth all come from these few minutes.
Yes, I want those memories for my family, but sometimes the extra effort gets in the way of my busy schedule. That’s why maximizing ways to make things from scratch, yet helping the recipe along in the quick fix department is always a goal.
These delicious quick batter rolls mixes the best of homemade yeast bread, but just cuts a few corners with time. I’ve eliminated the typical second rise and you won’t even miss it.
Originally, the recipe calls for all wheat bread, but you are free to use white too if that’s what you have on hand. I just lean towards freshly ground wheat for then nutrients.
As always with yeast bread, these rolls are best fresh and hot right out of the oven, but I am sure I don’t have to remind you of that.
They’ll be gone in minutes.
