I’ve tried to bake with yeast all my life … well, practically. I want to make huge, yummy, doughy cinnamon rolls and big, fluffy loaves of bread. Perhaps God knows I shouldn’t become a good baker because I’d be even bigger than I already am!!? I’ve tried various yeasts (packets and jars) and changed up how hard or soft I knead the dough and I’ve let it rise just as the instructions say … but instead, I get not-fluffy, not-light, dense, icky rolls and bread.
Until today!! Today I was lured in by a recipe that promised rolls just like Lambert’s “throwed rolls”. Have you heard of Lambert’s?? There are only 3 locations in the whole USofA … and one is actually fairly close to us in Ozark, Missouri. And yes, they really do THROW rolls at you!! YUMMY, yeasty, calorie-filled rolls.
And today – I – “Cordelia” – an ordinary Hausfrau – successfully prepared and baked rolls very, very similar to the famous throwed rolls!! I think my whole family was THANKFUL they turned out so well.
I knew it was promising when the dough rose just like the recipe said it should!
And the rolls baked up nice & big and fluffy!! The baker, of course, gets to sample the first one!!
LOOK AT THAT ROLL: the recipe
Would you like me to THROW one at you??!
