Light Rolls, Soft Sweet Light Rolls,

These rolls are so yummy! My mom makes them almost every Sunday, and they are just the best! Everyone who eats them just raves over them. I wish I had a picture of when she makes them because they are spectacular looking. This recipe makes about 2 1/2 dozen, and she bakes them all together in a giant cake pan and they all squish together and  look delectable! She got the recipe from a pastor’s wife almost 40 years ago, and we don’t know the original source.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 packages or 2T yeast
  • 1/2c warm water
  • 2 tsp. sugar
    Put in bowl together to let yeast activate

In a separate bowl mix:

  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil

In yet another bowl mix:

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp. salt
  • 7 to 8 cups regular all purpose flour ( Start with 7 cups, then as you’re mixing it add more flour till the dough is just a touch dry, and not too sticky.)

  • Mix two bowls of wet ingredients together. Make a hole in the dry ingredients and pour wet ingredients in.
  • Either mix by hand or mixer dough hook.
  • Rolls will be lighter and fluffier if you use your dough hook.
  • Cover and let rise for 45 minutes in a warm non drafty area.
  • Spray your pan or pans with cooking spray.
  • You need a pan or two with sides like a casserole dish or large cake pan.
  • Roll your dough into golf ball size balls and place about 3/4 inch apart in pans.
  • This should make 2 1/2 dozen rolls.
  • Cover and let raise again for 1-2 hours till they at least triple in size.
  • Bake in 350 degree preheated oven for about 15 to 20 minutes till golden brown.
  • When you take them out you can brush butter over them if you like.
