A while back I had posted on a no knead bread roll recipe I had tried. One of Oprah’s recipes. I thought that it had turned out pretty good. The problem was that it was way too much for two people. And unless you we having a party, I think that it was too much for a regular family. Even with my cutting the recipe in half. I loved being able to get the rolls on the table in less than two hours. The crumb of the rolls were great! So I tried the recipe again, but this time, I only made 6 rolls. It turned out great! This is enough for at least two meals for us. Here is the recipe, if you would like to try them:
Servings: Makes 1/2 dozen rolls
1/2 cup warm (105 degree to 115 degree F) water
1 package 1/4-ounce active dry yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
1 egg , lightly beaten
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon unsalted butter , melted
Pour water into a large bowl and sprinkle in yeast. Let stand until yeast softens, about 5 minutes. Add sugar, eggs, 1 tablespoon oil and salt and stir to dissolve yeast. Gradually stir in enough flour to make dough soft (you may have to use your hands to work in last additions). Work dough in bowl to make a smooth ball. Lightly brush top of dough with additional oil. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap.
Let stand in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour. Brush an 8-inch round cake pan lightly with melted butter. Punch down dough and cut into 6 pieces. With floured hands, form each piece of dough into a ball. Arrange balls of dough, smooth side up, in the pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let stand in a warm place until almost doubled in volume, about 35 minutes.
Meanwhile, position a rack in the center of oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Brush tops of rolls with remaining melted butter. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let rolls stand in pan for 5 minutes. Remove rolls from pan and break apart. Serve rolls hot or warm.
