I made these for a friend of mine. Okay, I made them for dinner and instead of eating the last three myself, I shared. So I wouldn’t eat them all…myself. She like them. Actually what she said was “ridiculously good”. I wish I could take credit for such ridiculously good rolls, but alas, the recipe was from my friend Dawn. Thanks Dawn. So I will share too….
Makes about 20-24 rolls
2 cups water
1 cup oats (I have used about every kind…they all work)
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
Boil water in saucepan. Add in oats, butter and sugar. Cook 5 minutes. Set aside and let cook till just warm.
In mixing bowl add in 1 Tbsp yeast, 1/3 cup warm water and 1 tsp sugar. Let sit 7 minutes. Add in oatmeal mixture and let sit another 3 minutes. Then turn mixture on low and add 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 Tbsp salt and 1 –2 cups AP flour until dough pulls away from sides. Form into rolls and put into greased cookie sheet. Let rise 45 minutes to 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until they just start to get golden on top.
TIP: my mom adds in 2 eggs. It makes them a bit softer, but I like without.
