Perfect Yeast Rolls Tips & Recipe

My enthusiasm for sharing things that really work is at an all time high right now.
Whether it is gardening ideas seasoned with joy, perhaps a simple decorating tip or a tried and true scrumptious recipe.
I'd like to share them all with you and today I am sharing a recipe for Perfect yeast rolls!
Are they picture perfect...no but they are mighty tasty.
I know this for certain, the more time that I spend with my hands in the garden soil or in a cup of flour the more I know that I have truly reclaimed my passion, renewed my purpose and have revisited skills and hobbies that I have always enjoyed and found to be productive.

Perfect yeast rolls tips:

1. You can use active yeast or compressed yeast in your recipes. Both take 5-10 minutes to soften.

2. Add the correct amount of sugar, it is the raw material from which yeast manufactures the leavening gas and also adds flavor and aids in browning.

3.Don't skip on the salt it is added to the dough for flavor, but also helps to control fermenting.

4. On day of high humidity dough may require up to one more cup of flour than recipe states, you will know by the stickiness of the dough.

5. Let dough rest before shaping to regain elasticity. Cover during this resting period so surface with not dry.

Sharing some behind the scene facts of why your bread goes from dough to buns!
For more of the science behind the bread you might enjoy Serious Eats

Scalding Milk
Milk that has been heated to 82 degrees (nearly to boil) then cooled down.
Scalding the milk is more of a scientific purpose for bread. The whey protein in the milk can weaken gluten and prevent the dough from rising properly. Scalding the milk deactivates the protein so this doesn't happen.

Rising

This is the most dramatic transformation the dough will go through.
Rising is a process of respiration.

Yeast
Fermentation and a type of fungus.

Basically three types of yeast:

*Fresh Yeast (block or cake)
*Active-Dry Yeast
*Instant Yeast

    1. Carole,
      This recipe has been passed down through the ages and is pretty much fail proof.
      Time and staying precise to the ingredients is really a sure fire way to have success when baking! Glad you enjoyed them too:)

  2. They look and sound scrumptious, Jemma. Isn't it so refreshing to be happy doing the things that make one feel passionate about their life? I also love to bake, but have to admit that yeast has always intimidated me, even though I have baked with it.

    Have a lovely week!

    1. Yes indeed Poppy staying true to ourselves and living our lives with that passion creates an environment of rich living. I have struggled a bit as all of the children have left home now and finding my own space to grown and thrive has been daunting. By I am getting there.
      Baking is a science and staying steady with the recipe creates a successful product!

    1. Cindy,
      I am just like you in the bread department, I can take it or leave it, except with these tasty little delights!
      They are just the right sizes because they are sort of mini's :)

  4. Oh, my word! These look amazing! It is probably a bad idea for me to learn to make them, though! LOL! Bread is definitely my weakness. Thank you so much for sharing!!

    3. They are super good Liz! So many different way to shape them as well which makes them doubly versatile. I love knowing the science behind baking-that is what makes cooking and baking so different! Baking you must follow the recipe-cooking you can experiment:)

  9. These look so delicious! I can just imagine eating one right now...hot out of the oven and with just a smidge of butter. Oh yummy.

    Would you believe I have never baked with yeast? For some reason it is intimidating to me. I will definitely have to try these in my new kitchen. :)

  10. Bread is my weakness!! I am not a baker, but I love to eat it. Although this recipe looks fairy doable. I may have to give it a whirl. Fingers crossed!! :)

  11. These rolls look so Yummy. Unfortunately, I have to watch my yeast intake though. There's nothing better than homemade bread or rolls warm from the oven with a little butter. These do look good, Jemma. And I really like the quote on here today, it spoke to me.

    A happy week to you, my sweet friend.

    love, ~Sheri

  12. hey look wonderful and so appetizing. Nothing better than home baked goods. My husband loves bread so this would be heavenly to him. xo

  13. Oh Jemma, I love this, not only for the wondrous taste of these, but for the tried and true methods and ingredients that take me back to my mother's flour-dusted kitchen. In this world of unpredictable circumstances, it is VITAL for us to keep a consistency, a routine of joy-making. You got it spot on. LOVE YOU!

  14. Yummy! They look delicious Jemma! I made some hot cross buns for Easter and they didn't rise during the first rise. The second rise was minimal but they baked fine and tasted good. Don't know what happened but I had a panicky moment when they looked exactly the same 1 1/2 hrs during the first rise. I'll have to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing with us!! Have a nice day! xo Linda

  15. Well, I'm going to try these as I still have some yeast left over from making Hot Cross Buns on the weekend. The buns I made didn't rise properly, and I'm wondering if using skim milk was the reason. I might incorporate these tips into my own recipe for the hot cross buns to see if I have better success. Thanks for your advice Jemma.
    It's so nice to hear how happy you are now in your life. Moving to the country and starting your garden sounds like it was the best therapy for you. Hugs!
