Did you know that rising yeast has festive symbolism attached to it? The rising action of yeast symbolizes abundance and plenty, making yeast rolls particularly meaningful for celebratory occasions.
Here is a simple yeast roll recipient that you can use:Ingredients: - 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) of active dry yeast - 1 cup warm milk (about 110°F or 45°C) - 1/4 cup granulated sugar - 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted - 1 teaspoon salt - 3 cups all-purpose flour Instructions:
- In the bread basket for proofing, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
- In a giant mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and sugar. Stir until well mixed.
- Add the yeast mixture and salt to the bowl. Mix thoroughly.
- Gradually add the flour to the mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time. Stir until the dough begins to come together.
- Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5 minutes until it's smooth and elastic. If it's too sticky, you can add a bit more flour.
- Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it has doubled.
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Punch the risen dough and divide it into equal portions to form rolls. Place the rolls on a greased baking sheet or in a greased baking dish, leaving a little space between each.
- Cover the rolls and let them rise for another 20-30 minutes.
- Bake in the oven for about 12-15 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown.
