Double quick dinner rolls and buns
I've had this little cookbook for about 35 years. The price sticker says $2.50! It has some great bread recipes.
One of my favorite recipes from the book is:
Double Quick Dinner Rolls (and buns)
I was also able to find the recipe on the Betty Crocker website
2 1/4 cups all-purpose or unbleached flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 package regular or quick active dry yeast
1 cup very warm water (120°F to 130°F)
2 tablespoons shortening (I use oil)
Mix 1 1/4 cups of the flour, the sugar, salt and yeast in large bowl. Add water, shortening and egg; beat with spoon until smooth. Stir in remaining flour until smooth. Scrape batter from side of bowl. Cover and let rise in warm place about 30 minutes or until double.
Grease 12 regular-size muffin cups. Stir down batter by beating about 25 strokes. Spoon into muffin cups. Let rise 20 to 30 minutes or until batter rounds over tops of cups.
Heat oven to 400ºF. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Hamburger buns variation
Increase flour to 2 3/4 cups. After stirring down batter, turn unto floured surface. Divide into 12 equal parts (24 for slider buns). Shape each part into a smooth ball with lightly greased fingers. Place about 1 inch apart on greased baking sheet. Beat 1 egg yolk and 1 tablespoon water slightly; brush over buns. Sprinkle with finely chopped onion, sesame seed, or poppy seed (egg wash and topping is optional). Bake as directed for rolls.
