***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!
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
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!
