Never Fail Yeast Rolls

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Juenessa

You would never know that these rolls have cake mix as one of the main ingredients. These rolls are easy to make and delicious! Sometimes I don't use all white flour and put 1 to 1 1/2 cups of wheat flour in as well.

These were actually fun to make. I followed the recipe to a T (thanks chef for the cake mix tip) and got exactly 24 rolls. The dough is quite sticky so a well floured board and hands is critical - trust me on this! ;-)! I did have to let it rest as my circles kept trying to shrink back up. My baking time was a little longer surprisingly as my oven usually runs hot - took about 17 minutes to get the tops brown. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
