So delicious and very easy. From Capper's Magazine. They are like the biscuits from the refrigerator department at the grocer, only better.

I had forgotten that I needed to bring something to a potluck yesterday morning, and remembered this recipe. This is a batter bread, and has the virtue of making up more quickly than would a more traditional yeast dough. While I like more traditional recipes better, the rolls turned out quite nice, and I will use this again when I need a quantity of rolls.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar,yeast and salt.
  2. On stove or in microwave, heat water and butter together until butter is melted and mixture is 120 - 130 degrees.
  3. With dough whisk or large wooden spoon, stir into flour mixture along with beaten egg until blended. The dough will be very sticky.
  4. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 35 to 45 minutes.

  6. Let rise, uncovered, 20 to 30 minutes, or until dough has risen to the top of the cups.
  7. During the last 15 minutes, heat oven to 400 degrees.
  8. Bake 20 minutes, or until rolls are golden brown.
  9. Let stand 5 minutes before removing from tins.
