Posted in response to a recipe request. Recipe from a Fleischmann's bread recipe book that I ordered from the company in the '70s by sending in empty packets that yeast came in. While I haven't tried this recipe, every other recipe I tried has been wonderful! Times listed do not include freezing or rising times.
- 5 1⁄2 cups flour, up to 6 1/2 cups
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 2 (1/4 ounce) packages active dry yeast
- 1 1⁄4 cups water
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄3 cup margarine
- 2 large eggs
- In a large bowl thoroughly mix 2 cups flour, sugar, salt and active dry yeast.
- Combine water, milk and margarine in a saucepan; heat until 120 to 130 degrees F (margarine does not need to melt).
- Gradually add to dry ingredients and beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat at high speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.
- Stir in enough additional flour to make a soft dough.
- Turn out onto lightly floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.
- Cover with plastic wrap, then a towel, let rest 20 minutes.
- Punch down dough again; shape into desired shapes for dinner rolls.
- Place on greased baking sheets; cover with plastic wrap and foil, sealing well.
- Freeze until firm.
- Transfer to plastic bags (freeze up to 4 weeks).
- TO BAKE: Remove from freezer; place on greased baking sheets.
- Cover; let rise in warm place, free from draft, until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours.
- Bake at 350 degrees F 15 minutes, or until golden brown and done.
- Remove from baking sheets and let cool.
Great recipe! These came together FAST! Mixing in my kitchen aid the dough was ready for the knead stage so I continued to 'knead' it on speed 2 in the mthan do it by hand for 8-10 minutes. I let it go for 7 minutes with no additional flour and it resulted in a smooth and elastic dough. Followed the rest of the instructions and now have dough balls waiting in the freezer. I baked 6 of them though for supper and they were wonderful. Soft and delicious! I did use unsalted butter rather than margarine which may up the flavor factor. These were yummy and good and so fast! Thanks for a keeper IM!
I didn't care for this recipe. It took forever for the dough to come together and it made a big mess.
I made these for Easter. The ease of freezing was wonderful, I feel the taste was only ok, but we all gladly ate them.
