Quick Rolls

Sometimes time is short, sometimes patience is wearing thin, and sometimes you jus don’t have yeast in the cupboard. Sometimes this happens when you really, really want to have rolls with your dinner. Sometimes you have to make due with the self-rising flour that you do have, and search the web for a means of making rolls.


I like that I found this recipe because the ingredients are things that we normally have in the fridge or cupboard, and that makes it easy. Also total time to make the dish, including clean up of the prep utensils, is less than 20 minutes. Not bad for rolls. Not bad at all.

All you need is self-rising flour, milk, mayonnaise, and a little sugar (you can follow the link above for quantities). I added a dash of garlic powder, although I couldn’t really taste it once they were cooked. To take it to the next level, though, one could add a combination of herbs, cheese, and salt to the dough and maybe make some rolls that remind oneself of a particular biscuit from a seafood restaurant.

That being said, these rolls are more like a dinner biscuit than a yeast roll. That’s okay, though. The moment you have the mix rolled you put in the oven for about 15 minutes, and thats all you do. You can’t complain, they taste great, the texture is good, and they are fast.


I will definitely make these again, they are easy to do in the last minute, and pretty hard to mess up. You can flavor them to match the meal, or you can top them with butter and keep it simple. This is probably going to be a recipe I take back to school with me, and keep it in mind when it’s time to make a dinner for the hall.
