Easy to Make Recipe: Quick Rolls

Updated on April 27, 2013

Hmm Hmm Bread

I don't know about you but I have always been a bread fanatic. Rolls are my weakness.

I used to sit and watch my Mammaw in the kitchen as she made her special recipes. Special because they were made by her of course. My mom inherited the cooking skill too. As for me, I must rely on my mom's easier recipes because I'm handier with a pen than a pan.

My mom has been a wizard of cakes for as long as I can remember; making wedding cakes and birthday cakes for everyone in our little town. The favorite part for me in watching her make these fabulous creations was eating the cake scraps. Even at my age, I still enjoy them. In fact I created a hub called What to Do With Cake Scraps because of those memories with my mom.

But back to the bread before I get off track with memories of cake scraps.

Bread. I love the smell of it as it comes out of the oven. Watching the butter melt the moment it touches the warm bread is makes you look forward to the moment it will touch your lips. The bread practically melts in your mouth as you take your first bite. OK, so that's a romanticized view of eating bread but it's what I long for on occasion.

If you are a bread lover like I am then try this recipe the next time your bread craving hits.
