I created these quick Buttermilk Rolls to go with my husbands birthday dinner of KEEP YOUR MAN FRIED CHICKEN, & since I had such an ambitious menu, I wanted something that would not take up too much time.

I found this recipe in a cookbook called "COUNTRY LIVING RECIPES" by Jean Wickstrom Liles, it is a paperback book with 106 pages of recipes, & so old that all the pictures are in Black & White but it does have some great recipes in my opinion. This was one of them. We loved the rolls, I like the idea of mixing the yeast with the flour & other ingredients, I will be making them again soon

How to Make QUICK BUTTERMILK ROLLS

Step-by-Step

  1. Using a large bowl add 1 1/2 cups flour, yeast, sugar salt & baking soda, and stir until it is well blended together. pour into a mixing bowl. PREP TIME DOES NOT INCLUDE THE PROOFING TIME FOR BREAD TO RISE.
  2. Using a small sauce pan, add the buttermilk with the water and shortening, & place it over low heat until warm(120 degrees to 130 degrees F) I USED A THERMOMETER FOR THIS, BECAUSE IF IT IS TOO HOT IT KILLS THE YEAST, AND UNDERHEATED THE YEAST WILL NOT ACTIVATE.
  3. Now gradually add the milk mixture to the dry flour yeast mixture, mixing at low speed of an electric mixer.
  4. Increase speed of mixer to medium & beat 3 minutes on medium speed then stir in remaining flour & beat till mixed together.
  5. TURN DOUGH OUT ONTO LIGHTLY FLOURED SURFACE, AND KNEAD UNTIL SMOOTH & ELASTIC ABOUT 5 MINUTES.
    Please NOTE, I chose to use my dough hook attachment for this step, switched to dough hook and Kneaded for 5 minutes, either technique will work.
  6. Now grease a large bowl, add the kneaded dough, be sure to grease the top of the dough in the bowl. Cover with a damp towel free from drafts.
  7. Allow to rise until double in bulk, about 45 minutes or so.
  8. Then punch down and shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. Grease a 15X10 inch Jelly Roll type pan, and place the rolls on pan about 1 1/2 inches apart. Allow dough to rise a second time in in a warm area, about 85 degrees F, an area free from drafts allow to rise about 35 minutes or until rolls double in size.
  9. Bake in a preheated 400 degree F. oven for 18 to 20 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen dinner Rolls. Both my husband & I enjoyed a hot dinner roll fresh from the oven with butter before dinner, just could not resist.
