On the first batch, I used my mom's sweet dough recipe she uses for cinnamon rolls, but i found that it was just too much sugar (but my husband loved it!). I liked them a lot better with just a plain old bread dough recipe, and they were still plenty sweet. So use your favorite roll/bread recipe, or if you don't have one, you can use this one i got off of a sachet of Fleishmann's yeast!
- 5½ c. flour
- 3 tbsp. sugar
- 2 envelopes quick-rise yeast (4 1/2 tsp.)
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1½ c. water
- ½ c. milk
- 2 tbsp. butter or margarine
In large bowl, combine 2 c. flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.
Heat water, milk, and butter until very warm. Stir into dry ingredients.
Beat two minutes at medium speed. Add 1 c. flour. Beat at high speed for two minutes.
Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead onto lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic (abt. ten minutes)
Cover and let rise for 10 minutes.Divide into balls, about 2 inches in diameter. This recipe is supposed to make two loaves of bread - i got 18 rolls and a small loaf (since i just couldn't resist plain and delicious fresh baked bread!).
