30 Minute Dinner Rolls

With Easter 2 days away, I wanted to share these 30 Minute Rolls, I found over at Real Mom Kitchen, with you. I discovered these one day, when I had made a stew and I had totally forgotten to get the ingredients for bread dough, into my bread machine. I decided to search for a quick dinner roll recipe and the photos on RMK hooked me and I made the rolls. I had my reservations about a recipe for rolls that could be made in 30 minutes, though. Would they rise enough, or would they be totally dense? I was also a bit worried about the amount of yeast. Would they taste to bitter, or yeast like?

The trick to these rolls is that the dough isn't like regular bread dough. It is a bit more wet, therefor sticky. I'm sure if more flour was added to make the dough nice and smooth, these totally would not work in 30 minutes. So, don't worry, sticky slightly wet dough is good! These baked up beautifully and were fluffy with a pillowy soft inside. The kids absolutely loved these, and I'm very happy that I have an awesome quick dinner roll recipe, for when it is super hectic in the kitchen, like during the holidays.

30-Minute Rolls
found at Real Mom Kitchen

1 cup plus 2 Tbsp warm water
⅓ cup oil
2 Tbsp yeast
¼ cup sugar
½ tsp salt
1 eggs
3½- 4 cups flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish or 12 cup muffin tin.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine water, oil, yeast, and sugar. Allow mixture to sit for 15 minutes. With a dough hook, mix in salt and eggs and 2 of the cups flour until combined. Add remaining flour ½ cup at a time; until a somewhat sticky dough is formed. Spray your hands with cooking spray and shape dough into 12 balls and let rest for 10 minutes.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes until tops are golden brown. Makes 1 dozen.
Original recipe from Suzie Roberts author of "Girlfriends on The Go"

I'd love to make these buns.... but why always use cups as measurements? Is the meaurement of a cup just a recipient, any "cup"?
For us Europeans and other countries, grams would be nice ;-)
