Simplicity is sometimes just the secret to success. When you find the ticket that seems to work over and over again, never give it up. I discovered I was on to something with these rolls a few years ago…
The first time I made these for Travis, he kissed me for the very first time.
The second time I made them, he told me he loved me.
The third time I made them, we were married.
Those are true facts and might not be a coincidence. So let me share this “golden ticket” of a recipe. All you need is flour, yeast, sweetener and eggs. Find a boy and let these rolls (and softened butter) do the rest.
Since I’ve become aware of the better sugar alternatives, I make these rolls with powdered honey and I’ve found that they are almost more delicious than with regular sugar. I knew I was on to something yet again with the honey when my hubby loved these sugar-free replicas. I even got a kiss or two. Success!
A major perk to this recipe is that they are super easy to make. I know some people shun recipes the second they see the “y” word. You don’t have to be afraid of yeast here; it’s honestly a no fail recipe! Best part about it is that they truly are made from start to finish in about an hour!
- 1 Tablespoon Yeast in 1/2 cup Warm Water
- 1/3 cup Powdered Honey, divided
- 5 Tablespoons unsalted Butter at room temperature
- 2 Large Eggs, beaten at room temperature
- 1 teaspoon Sea Salt or Pink Salt
- 1 1/4 cup scalded Milk
- 4 1/2- 5 cups Spelt Flour, White Flour or White Wheat Flour
- Measure out yeast and put into 1/2 cup of warm water. Pour 1 Tablespoon of powdered honey over it and set aside.
- Scald milk by microwaving for 2 minutes. Melt butter into milk and let cool. Meanwhile, beat eggs with a fork in a large bowl. Add 1/4 cup powdered honey and salt. Pour milk and butter mixture into large bowl. Mix together and let cool if still warm.
- Add yeast to the cooled mixture. Add 4 + cups of flour until right consistency. It shouldn’t be sticky. Knead dough for five minutes. Cover with a towel and place in a warm area to let rise for 25-30 minutes. Pinch out 1 inch smooth balls and place 3 together into a muffin pan.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Brush with butter when out of oven and serve.
