I am asked regularly if my kids eat rice. Yes, my kids  eat rice.  Yes, they eat it almost everyday.  Folks around here  are often surprised by this information because they are under the impression that we, Americans, eat nothing but bread and cheese.  And as much as I wish that was true, it is not.  Cheese is way too expensive and bread has to be homemade and we all know that is a forward thinking process.  Start in the morning to have bread by dinner.  Or is it? Nope, not anymore.  These rolls are done in an hour.  No joke.  I would never joke about bread… or cheese.  These two things are way too important.

10-40-20.  Say it with me.  10-40-20.  Mix for 10 minutes.  Rise for 40 minutes.  Bake for 20.  There you have it.  Hot.  Homemade. Delicious.

One Hour Yeast Rolls

Makes 2 dozen rolls


4 1/2 tsp yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 cups warm buttermilk
1/4 cup sugar, divided
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp salt
4 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 T butter, melted


Dissolve baking soda in milk.  In large mixing bowl dissolve yeast in water, add 1 tsp sugar, stir and let foam.  Add milk, remaining sugar, oil and salt.  Add one cup of flour and mix well with a whisk.  Then add remaining flour and mix with a wooden spoon. Add more flour if needed to make a slightly sticky dough.  Knead in bowl.  With floured hands shape dough into small balls and place into greased cake pans close together.  The rolls will push each other up while rising.  Let them rise for 30-40 minutes.  Brush with melted butter and bake in a 400 degree oven until lightly browned.  About 20 minutes.
