Sweet Dough Dinner Rolls

Mmmmmm.... fresh baked bread. My weakness is sweet dough. I use it to make Dinner Rolls, Sticky Buns, Herbed Bread, Hot Cross Buns and Perishke (meat filled buns). I actually use my bread maker to make the dough which follows a 20 minute knead, 1 hour rest cycle. I then turn it out, make it into whatever I'm baking, let it rest again for 10 minutes, then bake. If you don't already have a sweet dough recipe in your repertoire, I highly recommend it!

I'm sure you can modify to mix in Kitchen Aid or by hand if you ensure you use luke warm milk, room temperature egg, and even warm flour.

Add the following in this order:
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons margarine
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups flour
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
2-4 tablespoons water (as needed, add as you knead dough if dry or stiff)

- Knead 20 minutes, rest 1 hour.
- Turn dough out and shape into rolls. (I like large rolls for dinner)
- Place in greased baking dish and brush with melted margarine.
- Let stand 10 minutes.
- Bake @ 350° for 20-25 minutes.

  2. wish I still had my breadmaker. Mine started scraping the inside silver paint of the loaf pan into the dough! I always meant to email the company and never got around to it.

  14. I don't know why, but I rarely make rolls, sweet or otherwise, here. I should. I love the smell and taste. Yours look fantastic, as usual. Maybe I'll give it a go tonight for dinner.

  15. Ok, I made these today and I must say...they were awesome. I am so out of practice with making homemade bread that I am not sure that I kneaded them enough. I used a dough hook on my mixer. It didn't matter. My husband was pumped and it was such a treat. Now I have to blog about it...and I will give you a shout out.
