The Stir-and-Pour Bread just keeps growing in all its amazing opportunities for easy baking.
First, we figured out that the concept of stirring together ingredients and pouring them into pans to make bread really does work.
Next, we experimented and learned that the recipe actually made a delicious variety of sandwich bread. We vowed to never knead dough again. (Well, not all of us vowed that. Maybe I’m the only one who vowed that. I guarantee that my kneading knowledge will be used less and less frequently from now on.)
Now, I am excited to share that by simply scooping the Stir-and-Pour dough into muffin cups, we can make dinner rolls!
What did we ever do without this recipe?
Stir-and-Pour Dinner Rolls
- 4 cups whole wheat flour (I use freshly ground hard white wheat)
- 2 teaspoons active rise yeast
- 2 Tablespoons sucanat or sugar or honey
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 egg (optional)
- ¼ cup heavy cream (optional)
- 2 cups warm water
- Stir all ingredients together.
- Cover and allow it to sit for 30 minutes.
- Pour contents into buttered muffin tins or silicone muffin cups.
- Bake in a 350° for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Serve right away.
Can it get any easier?
Stir-and-Pour Dinner Roll Quick Tips
- These Stir-and-Pour Dinner Rolls taste best fresh, right out of the oven. That means that while just about everything else on my holiday table will be made ahead of time and reheated while I put these rolls together about an hour before meal time.
- Mix the dry ingredients the day before and set them aside for easy mixing as you prepare the rest of the meal.
- A few hours before your meal, place a stick of butter on a plate to soften to serve with your rolls. You must butter these. It is a requirement.
- The recipe makes 18-24 rolls, depending on how much dough you scoop into each muffin cup.
