My Grandma raised 6 kids, and has oodles of Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren. She loved to bake -- most of her recipes were from memory. Before she passed away, I was able to watch her make this dough and wrote the measurements down. It is a favorite of all the family, so I wanted to share it with everyone. Good for cinnamon rolls, or dinner rolls

Excellent dough. I made these into cinnamon rolls and they were soft and fluffy. I baked them at 350 for 25 minutes. This is a great recipe for new bakers. The amount of flour is spot on and the dough is a dream to work with. Thank you for sharing your grandma's recipe. Will be using this again and again.
- 2 (1/4 ounce) packages dry yeast
- 1⁄2 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)
- 1 1⁄4 cups buttermilk
- 2 eggs
- 5 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
Directions See How It's Made
- Dissolve yeast in the warm water in a large mixing bowl. Add buttermilk, eggs, 2 1/2 cups flour, butter, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- Blend 30 seconds on low speed, scraping sides and bottom of the bowl.
- Beat 2 minutes on medium speed. Stir in remaining 3 cups of flour. Dough should be soft and slightly sticky.
- Knead for about 5 minutes on a lightly floured board. Shape as desired. Let rise in a warm place until double. (about 1 hour -- depending on temperature) Dough is ready to bake if slight dent remains when touched. Bake at 375 degrees. I don't have a bake time, but 20 minutes is about standard. It is best to keep a close eye.
