I volunteered to make some bread for our Relief Society activity night this month. I decided to experiment a little and make some yummy sweet rolls. Not the best time to experiment, but I'm so excited that it was a huge success!
When we lived in
, my all time favorite place to go was good ol' Chuckarama. Seriously, what kind of name is that? We used to call it "Up-Chuckarama". Really though, the food was great. We just liked to call it that. You know like "Snot in the Box" or "Tomatobees" (that one is actually 2 different restaurants. My kids get them both mixed up). Anyway... you didn't come here to read about my random quirks. Back to Chuckarama. I absolutely loved their rolls. And their honey butter... HEAVEN!!! Provo
Not to toot my own horn (Toot Toot). All I could say when I first tried these rolls was "Eat your heart out Chuckarama!" They we SO good!!! I took my Cinnamon Rolls recipe and played with it a little. Try them, you'll love em!
Better Than Sweet Rolls
2 tbsp, saf instant yeast.
2 1/2 C. Warm Water
1/2 C. Canola oil
1 C sugar
1/4 c. milk
1 tsp Salt
9 c. flour approx
Mix 4 cups flour, salt, sugar, and yeast. Add Water, oil, milk and eggs. Mix thoroughly and add flour just until it pulls away from the sides of the mixer. Knead/Mix on Medium speed for 6-8 minutes. Lightly grease a large bowl. Move dough to the bowl. Cover and let rise until doubled, then punch down dough.
Roll into balls and place next to each other on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about 2-3 dozen
Tip: You may need more or less flour depending on humidity and other factors. You'll want the dough to be a sticky as possible but still able to handle. I coat my hands with a little flour, so that I can handle it easier. The less you add, the lighter the rolls will be..
