This will also be my entry for Wild Yeast's Yeastspotting event and Cathy at Noble Pig's Potato Ho Down Event..I have a two fer here! These rolls were very easy to make and they were delicious. I took some pictures while I was making them. To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title
This is what the dough looked like before I kneaded it. I used real potatoes instead of instant, I also used the water that the potatoes cooked in for the water in the recipe.
After I cut the dough into 12 strips I rolled them into little snails, put them on a greased baking sheet and let them rise.
They rose up very nicely following the recipe instructions to put boiling water in a shallow pan and put the baking sheet of dough on top of it and cover. These rose up in just 15 minutes!
Bake them for 25 minutes and this is what you get...the perfect companion for a hearty homemade soup.
Makes 12 Rolls
3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 envelope FLEISCHMANN'S RapidRise Yeast
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup instant potato flakes or buds*
In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water, milk, and butter until very warm (120o to 130oF). Stir in potato flakes; let soften 1 minute. Stir into dry ingredients. Stir in 1 egg and enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece to 12-inch rope. Coil each rope to make "snail" shape. Arrange rolls in a circle on large greased baking sheet with sides barely touching. Place large shallow pan on counter; half fill with boiling water. Place baking sheet on pan. Cover; let rise 15 minutes. Lightly beat remaining egg; brush over rolls. Bake at 375oF for 25 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet; let cool on wire rack.
*To use fresh potato: Follow above directions except decrease water to 1/2 cup and replace potato flakes with 1/3 cup cooked, mashed potato (at room temperature). Stir mashed potato into dough along with egg.
I don't know about you but I could go for something sweet ! How about a Fluffernutter Cake. This recipe came from Cookie Baker Lynn and is outstanding. We start by making a two layer banana cake , then we're going to top each layer with chocolate chips and bake it.
Then we're going to slather it with Peanut Butter Fluffernutter Frosting!
I couldn't cut this cake because this was my son's birthday cake, but trust me it was good and you can find the recipe here.
