30 Minute Rolls and a Giveaway

***Giveaway is now closed***
I have some exciting news for you today! I have been lucky enough to have been given a chance to review Real Mom Kitchen's Cookbook and the publishing company (Cedar Fort Books) has been kind enough to give a copy away to one of my lucky readers!!!  

I have been very impressed with Laura's cookbook so far.  It is one that I could see myself cooking my way through (yes, each and every recipe).  Each recipe uses standard ingredients (nothing weird) and the majority are fast and simple!  Her instructions are numbered and easy to follow.  Not to mention - her photos are amazing!  Some recipes are from scratch while others use packaged ingredients.  She also has several that are exclusive only to her cookbook and you will not find on her blog.  I would recommend this cookbook to any person wanting quick and easy meals!  It will be released on August 8, 2011!      

How To Enter My Giveaway (two possible entries):
1.  For one entry: You must be a follower of Eat Cake For Dinner (on the right hand side of my blog).  If you are already a follower, just leave me a comment and let me know!  If you are a new follower, leave me a comment and let me know!


2.  For a second entry: Visit Real Mom Kitchen and leave me a separate comment with which of her recipes you would most like to try!


Giveaway will end Wednesday, August 3rd at midnight (winner will be selected at random) and the winner will be announced August 4th!  Winner must contact me within 48 hours or a new winner will be selected!  Good Luck to Everyone!  


I was thrilled when I saw that Laura included this 30-minute roll recipe in her cookbook.  I have been making this recipe for a few years now.  I absolutely LOVE them and they are by far the best QUICK rolls I have ever tried.  These are so easy that you can whip them up on a weekday, after work, in no time!  I think this is a no-fail recipe and would be great to try for beginner bread makers!!   
30 Minute Rolls
adapted from: Real Mom Kitchen

1 c. plus 2 Tbl. warm water
1/3 c. vegetable oil
2 Tbl. active dry yeast
1/4 c. sugar 
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
3 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine warm water, oil, yeast and sugar; let rest for 5-10 minutes or until frothy and bubbly.  With a dough hook, mix in salt, egg and 2 cups of flour until combined.  Add remaining 1/2 cup flour at a time (dough will be sticky).  Spray your hands with cooking spray and shape the dough into 12 balls.  After shaped, place on lightly greased cookie sheet and let rest for 10 minutes.  Bake for about 10 minutes or until tops are lightly golden.  Yield: 12 good-sized rolls.  You can also use this same dough for cinnamon rolls!

  24. Gosh, that IS easy! Who wouldn't want fresh, homemade yeast rolls with their dinner? My father's father's father owned a bakery & so the bread making gene has been passed down through the generations. I can't wait to try such a simple method!!

  25. Holy Crimoli...I just came back from Real Mom's Kitchen blog! I didn't have to go past the first page of postings to find SEVERAL recipes that I'd love to try. Those "Easy S’mores Bars" are calling my name. I never got to go to camp & never got to have the REAL smores, done over a campfire, so these are going to be a treat.

    Thanks again for letting me enter your giveaway & for telling me about Real Mom Kitchen.

    I'm off to explore your blog now. :-)

    fondly,
    Rett

Wanted to enter your give away so I am now a follower.

  66. I just went to real mom's kitchen. I am looking forward to trying some of her recipes... the ones i will probably try first is the different popcorn ones. I really want to learn how to make kettle corn so that peaked my interest, plus I have a great caramel corn recipe but I have to cook it over the stove and then in the oven. Would love to try hers in the microwave to see how it compares. Would be nice to have a movie night alternative these hot summer months.
