This started after a conversation with my sister who is planning her daughter’s wedding reception. She said she wanted to serve a roll, a little sweet, with enough flavor that it is great on its own. This is a recipe from recipelink.com using a yellow cake mix to make rolls a lot like King’s Hawaiian rolls. They tasted great to me last night with dinner, but even better this morning when I had one for breakfast! Sweet!
2½ cups warm water (110°)
2 pkg (4½ tsp) active dry yeast
1 (15.25 oz – 18 oz) yellow cake mix
1 Tbl oil
5 cups flour
1½ tsp salt
4 Tbl butter, melted
In bowl of mixer, pour warm water, sprinkle yeast over, then cake mix. Let sit 5 minutes. Add oil, flour, and salt, mix all together. Knead. Let rise 1 hour. Knead lightly again, pat out and cut for rolls and place on sprayed baking sheet or divide evenly into 30 pieces, make balls and place in two sprayed 9″x13″ pans (like pictured above). Can also be made into two large loaves. Let rise until double. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes for rolls and 30-35 minutes for loaves. Brush with melted butter as they come from the oven.
