Recipe by Bonnie G 2
READY IN: 55mins
YIELD: 12 Rolls




  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine yeast, water, and honey. Stir in melted butter, salt, and eggs until combined.
  • Slowly add in the flour, 1 cup at a time, until dough forms into a ball and easily pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl.
  • Divide into 12 even pieces and shape into balls. Place into a 12-inch cast iron skillet. Cover and let rise 20 minutes, or until double in size.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Brush with another tablespoon of melted butter if desired.
  • Pro Tip: This recipe uses a large amount of yeast to cut rising time as much as possible. If your house is on the colder end, you may want to create a warmer environment for it to proof, or rise. A warm, humid environment between 80 and 90 degrees is ideal for proofing bread. If your house is below 70 to 75 degrees, your rolls will not rise as quickly.
