This recipe comes from "Dining on a Dime" by Tawra Kellam and has become my recipe of choice for making rolls and pocket sandwiches. *I have made some very minor adjustments to this but it is essentially Tawra's recipe. Gotta give credit where credit is due!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -2 12 cups flour (may need more)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 12 cup milk
  • 14 cup water (I use all milk)

  1. Melt butter in small saucepan. Add milk and water and heat until very warm, 120-130 degrees.
  2. While milk is heating, mix 3/4 cup flour, sugar, yeast and salt.
  3. Add warmed milk/butter to dry ingredients and beat for 2 minutes on medium speed.
  4. Add 1/4 cup flour and beat 2 minutes on high.

Yum. I used my stand mixer and I think I overworked the dough. I then had a hard time getting the dough to mix in, and it always looked a little funny. That said, these were great tasting. They were little and lumpy due to my operator error, but had fabulous taste and were fluffy. If I can mess up that bad and they are still that good then WOW! Thanks Paula!
