Jeanne's Story

I found this recipe that I had written down some years back. I like to make it because it is an easy bread recipe and I love hot dinner rolls.

Ingredients

2 to 2 1/2 c
all purpose flour
2 Tbsp
sugar
1
envelope rapid rise yeast
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 c
milk
1/4 c
water
2 Tbsp
butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, combine 3/4 cup flour, un-dissolved yeast and salt. Mix well.
2
In a smsall sauce pan, heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120 to 130 F)
3
Add the warm liquid into the flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of an electric mixer, scraping the bowl occasionally.
4
Add 1/4 cup flour and beat 2 more minutes. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make soft dough.
5
Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes. Cover and let rest 10 to 15 minutes.
6
Divide dough into 12 equal portions and shape into balls.
7
Place in a greased muffin pan.
8
Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
9
Bake at 375 F for 20 minutes or until done.
10
Remove from pan and brush with additionl melted butter, if desired. Serve warm.

Cake flour is a low gluten flour.
Gluten is a wheat protein that gives the bread structure and stiffness.

Self-rising flour is just all-purpose flour with baking powder (or other leaveners) mixed in the flour.

Has any one every tried heating your micro-wave with a cup of water and placing the bread,rolls & ect. in the micro-wave to rise (with door shut of course)? Just warm the mirco-wave till the water starts to boil. Be careful and take the water out. Shove the bread or rolls in the micro and shut the door. Watch them rise! I have lots of luck using this method. Just don't start the micro-wave!
