This recipe from my new Taste of Home magazine is a real keeper. I love making rolls from scratch and these have such a wonderful flavor. They would be excellent to serve for breakfast or brunch, they have a lot of flavor all on their own. -Sarah
2 1/4 t. yeast
1/2 cup warm (110-115 degrees) water, divided
1/2 cup warm (110-115 degrees) coffee
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 T. shortening
1 t. salt
3-3 1/2 cups bread flour
- Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Add the remaining water, coffee, oats, sugar, syrup, egg, shortening, salt, and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface and knead about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning to grease top of dough. Cover and let rest until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Punch dough down, turn onto a floured surface and divide into about 15 balls, placing in a greased 9x13 pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
- Bake at 350 degrees about 15 minutes. Brush with melted butter if desired.
