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: swiss braided bread

Today I’m going to share a recipe that I am actually quite proud of. Why, you ask? Well because it’s actually my first ever attempt at making bread! In true Emory form, I chose a somewhat complicated route. I also made some of it up as I went along since I have difficulties following instructions when it comes to baking. However, it certainly paid off. This bread was soooo delicious, and you get two loaves out of this recipe. Bonus.

Swiss Braided Bread:

Ingredients

3 ½ cups flour
1 ½ cup milk
1 egg
1 tbsp active dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 ½ tbsp sugar
4 tbsp butter (melted)

Steps

1. Warm the milk. In a bowl, combine the egg, milk, yeast, and butter. Stir. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes, ensuring that the yeast completely dissolves.

2. In a separate large bowl, mix the flour, salt, and sugar. Make a well.

3. Add the wet ingredients to the well. Mix with a wooden spoon until it forms a firm dough.

4. Move the dough onto a floured surface. Knead for approximately 10 minutes.

5. Brush a new large bowl with butter. Place the dough in the bowl. Cover with a dishcloth and put into the oven for 1.5 hours. It will double in size.

6. Remove from oven. Cut the dough in half and place on a floured surface. Taking one half, divide again into three equal pieces. Turn each piece into a long rope, 12” in length.

7. Lay all three ropes side by side. Pinch the end of three pieces together. Now braid. When you get to the end of the first loaf, fold the bottom under. Repeat with the second loaf.

8. Grease a baking sheet with butter. Place both loaves onto the sheet. Butter the loaves, then cover with a dishcloth and place in the oven for 1 hour. They will more than double in size.

9. Remove the loaves, and heat the oven to 400°F. Place them back in and bake for approximately 20 minutes.

10. Once the loaves are golden brown, remove them from the oven. Serve them with a preserve or with any meal.
