I've never been brave enough to learn how to make bread or rolls because getting the yeast to rise always seemed super daunting. But I found a super easy recipe and after MANY attempts, I figured it out! These rolls are delicious and come together really quickly. I make them weekly, sometimes more than once a week, and they take only about an hour or so to go from start to hot rolls straight from the oven. In other words, you're welcome.
Step 1: Mix 2 tablespoons of yeast with 2 2/3 cups warm water and 4 tablespoons (or 1/4 cup) of honey. Stir until the honey is dissolved. [I like to mix the honey with the water first before adding it to the yeast.] Give it 5-10 minutes for the yeast to rise.
Step 2: Add 7 cups of flour and 2 teaspoons of salt. Mix on the lowest setting until the dough comes together, then at a slightly higher setting until the dough is thoroughly mixed. [It shouldn't be too sticky, but rather pretty elastic.] Let it sit and rise for just 5 minutes or so.
Step 3: Roll the dough into balls and let them rise for about 20 minutes. [They can rise longer, but I think they are better if they don't rise too long. You have to play it by ear.]
Step 4: Place the rolls in a greased glass baking dish. Bake at 425 degrees for 8-10 minutes until lightly browned on top.
The finished product! Don't they look amazing??
