recipe: quick casserole dish buns

I grabbed this recipe from the Internet when I was in need of a fast recipe that would yield a lot of dinner rolls without using a ton of flour. It’s so easy, and they taste simply amazing! Try it out for yourselves. (And I didn’t even use a “bun in the oven” joke!)

Quick Casserole Dish Buns

Ingredients:
Makes 24

1 cup lukewarm water
1 ½ tbsp active dry yeast
½ cup butter, melted
½ cup white sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp salt
4 cups all-purpose flour

Steps:

1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the water with the yeast. Then set aside for 10 minutes.

2. Using a large bowl, add the butter, sugar, eggs, and salt. Mix well.

3. Add the yeast mixture to the large bowl and stir until well combined.

4. Now add flour one cup at a time into the mixture. Keep adding until the dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl. This will be approximately 4 cups of flour.

5. Remove the dough and put onto a floured surface. Knead for about 5 minutes.

6. Form the dough into a long rope. Evenly cut into 24 pieces, then roll each piece into a ball.

7. Lightly grease an oblong casserole dish. Place each ball of dough onto the dish (6 rows of 4). Cover, and let rise for 60-90 minutes.

8. Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked all the way through. Enjoy!

recipe: vegan avocado & peanut fudge

Avocados are a source of healthy fats, as well as containing over twenty vitamins and minerals. I thought I would try a healthier take on a sweet treat this time round.

Vegan Avocado & Peanut Fudge

1 ½ cups vegan chocolate chips
1 cup coconut sugar
¾ cup coconut milk (place in fridge beforehand and use hardened top and bottom layers)
½ cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp sea salt
2 large avocados
½ cup chopped peanuts

Steps:

1. In a medium saucepan, combine the first six ingredients. Stir over medium heat until completely melted. Turn the heat off, and set the mixture aside.

2. Remove the skin and pits from the avocados. Place in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Then add the chocolate mixture and blend again until well combined.

3. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper. (I tried using tin foil the first time round, and it was a disaster! Use parchment to ensure that the fudge won’t stick to the dish.) Pour the fudge evenly into the dish. Top with peanuts. Place in the freezer for at least 4 hours, and keep the fudge in there until just before serving. The cooler it is, the firmer it is, which makes it easier to cut and to eat! Bon appétit!
