There is nothing better than homemade bread. I’d fight anyone who says differently. This recipe is my mother in law’s, who I understand received it from her mother. If the recipe made it to the next generation you know it’s good. This bread was a staple at Wessman Sunday dinners when we lived near family and I requested the recipe a few years ago because I wanted to make people that happy. Neighbors and friends also really love you when you drop these by their houses randomly. Also, I should note that I have not fallen of the GF train. The sad truth is that I don’t actually get to eat these anymore. It’s fine, I just stick my nose really close to the pan as I pull them from the oven and inhale deeply. It’s almost the same…
- 2 C warm water
- 1 Tbsp yeast
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp sugar ( I use brown sugar)
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 3 1/2-4 cups of flour
- Pour warm water, yeast, and sugar into the mixer, stir a bit and let sit for a few minutes
- Add all other ingredients and then flour a 1/2 a cup at a time until dough is sticky, but not gooey and doesn’t stay on your fingers when you pull away.
- Knead for ten minutes and then cover bowl and allow to rise for 1/2 an hour.
- Form into rolls and place on a greased pan with some space in between. Cover and allow to rise until doubled in size.
- Preheat oven for 400°.
- Bake for 10 minutes or until tops are golden.
