There’s something magical about homemade bread. By mixing just a few ordinary ingredients such as flour, water and eggs with a few spoonfuls of yeast, you can create one of the world’s most beloved soul foods. Honey-butter dinner rolls definitely top our list of favorites.
Growing up with sad store-bought rolls and spongy white bread from a plastic bag, it’s easy to believe that homemade yeast rolls are created with some kind of magic. Like so many of us, Monique was totally intimidated by the idea of making her own rolls at home, especially without the aid of a machine. Something so perfect must be incredibly difficult to make.
As this recipe shows, though, that’s not the case!
Monique’s recipe makes it easy for you to create soft, golden-brown rolls that are crispy outside and fluffy inside. And don’t worry: this how-to doesn’t use fancy words like proofing. You’ll have puffy little wedges of dough in no time, which will bake into crescents of delight and fill your house with the mouthwatering smell of hot yeast rolls.
While improving upon such perfection might sound impossible, homemade honey butter does just that. By adding a little honey and powdered sugar to real butter, you get a topping that’s worthy of these heavenly treats! They’re best when warm from the oven. But watch out: They’re habit forming!
