The yeast of my worries

What do you do 44 minutes before dinner is going to be done and you realize that you should have made rolls since this is the only dinner you’re able to sit down with your husband for the weekend?

I googled ‘no rise bread’ and went with the first recipe I saw.  OMG.

Seriously amazing.

They puffed up quite well in the oven too!

2 ½ C warm water
6 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp yeast
2 Tbsp oil
6 C flour (can use white or wholemeal)
2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder

Stir water, yeast, sugar and oil together. Leave for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy on top. Add flour, salt and baking powder. Mix well. Knead. Roll out if making a pizza base or shape for use as buns / bread / loaf. Paint with oil or milk (if you can be bothered). Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

I made 1/2 this recipe, egg washed and salted the tops.  It made 8 good sized dinner rolls.

*I should note that I baked them on a cookie sheet in the oven with my meatloaf at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes then turned up the heat to about 450 degrees for another 5 or so minutes to brown them up.
