This month's host with the most is Stacy of Food Lust People Love. Stacy is also the fearless leader of this group and our #BundtBakers group which will be posting on Thursday. Stay tuned for that. Today, however, we are sharing Sweetened Yeast Breads. With it being the holidays, my first thought was my Grandma's Raisin Bread or a Christmas Stollen but I have shared both of those with you in the past.
I was hosting a dinner party last Friday night and decided to make these Sweet Milk Dinner Rolls that I found from Taste of Home.
The recipe was for 16 rolls. They would have been gigantic. This may have been because I needed to add about 3/4 cup more flour then called for in the original recipe. I ended up making 22 rolls from the dough. I baked half to serve at my dinner party and put the others into the freezer to use for this Friday evening's dinner party.
I don't know why they have those light spots on them. Perhaps from the flour that I turned them onto for cutting. These rolls were lightly sweet and absolutely delicious. My husband thought they were the best dinner rolls I have ever made. Don't forget to visit the other wonderful bread recipes being offered today. You will find links following my recipe.
Sweet Milk Dinner Rolls
adapted from Taste of Home
1 pkg. Active dry yeast
2 c. warm whole milk (110-115*)
1/2 c. sugar
2 T. butter, melted
1 t. salt
3 c. bread flour
2-3 c. all purpose flour
Dissolve yeast in warm milk in large bowl of stand mixer fitted with the dough hook. Add the sugar, butter, salt and bread flour. Beat until smooth. Add enough of the all purpose flour to form a soft dough. Knead at medium speed for 6 minutes. Place into a greased bowl, turning the dough ball to cover all sides. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch down the dough, turn it onto a floured surface and divide into 22 even pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place 2" apart on a baking sheet covered in parchment. If freezing place baking sheet in freezer until dough balls are hardened. They can then be transferred to a freezer bag until ready for use. When ready to use, defrost and continue with next step.
Cover and let rise in a warm spot until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Print Recipe
