Got this off the internet (somewhere!) a few years ago. Absolutely delicious - they will be gobbled up quickly! You can make them in an hour, but of course the longer you can let them rise, the better!
- 2 1⁄4 teaspoons dry yeast or 1 package yeast
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 3⁄4 cup buttermilk
- 1⁄4 cup canola oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 1⁄4 cups flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine (butter, especially Lurpak Danish butter is of course best)
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine yeast and sugar in large bowl.
- Set aside.
- Heat the buttermilk and water in the microwave until warm- NOT HOT!
- About 45 seconds to 1 minute.
- Pour the buttermilk slowly into the yeast/sugar mixture until combined.
- Allow this mixture to sit for 5 minutes.
- Add oil and dry ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.
- Allow the dough to rest for about 10 minutes.
- While the dough is resting, melt the butter in a 9" round (dark) cake pan.
- Spray your hands with butter or cooking spray, and scoop out a piece of dough (about 2-3 T. size).
- Roll it into a ball in your hands.
- Drop the ball into the pan, and roll it around in the butter.
- Repeat this process with the remaining dough, buttering hands again as needed.
- You will wind up with about 12 rolls.
- Place the pan in a warm place to rise, for 30-60 minutes.
- Longer is better, of course.
- Preheat the oven to 425, and bake for 8-12 minutes until golden brown.
- You don't need butter with these!
