My family loves bread. When I was little, my mom would make our sandwiches for lunch with homemade bread, and I remember being embarrassed at lunchtime at school because everyone else had store bought white bread. Of course as an adult, I realize how much yummier homemade is compared to store bought, and how silly I was to be self conscious of my thick crusty homemade bread. My mother makes the BEST fluffiest light rolls too, even way better than I do when I use the same recipe. I have posted them before here. That recipe is great for when you have extra time to devote to making them, but when I saw this quick blender recipe in Taste of Homes Holiday 2008 Thanksgiving edition, I wanted to try it to see if it would be a good fast alternative recipe. They turned out beautiful and delicious and no kneading or shaping is involved.

, Quick Blender Light Rolls,

Blender Light Rolls
1 c warm milk (not too hot or it will ruin your yeast)
1 pkg. yeast or 1 Tablespoon
1/4 c sugar
2 eggs
1/4 c oil
Put these 5 ingredients in a blender and blend for 30 seconds on low.

, Quick Blender Light Rolls,

In a bowl combine:
3 1/4 c flour
1 tsp. salt
Then pour the ingredients from the blender into the flour mixture and stir till everything is combined.

You don’t have to knead it, just cover with a towel at this point, put it in a warm, non drafty spot and let raise for 30 minutes.

Divide dough among 12 greased muffin cups, just dropping it in with a spoon.
Cover again with a towel and let raise for another 30 minutes.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes till golden.
Take them out of the pan to cool on a clean towel (or wire rack) so they won’t continue to brown.
