Baking buns at home is an integral part of any meal involving soup or stews, but even more important when it comes to holidays and special event dinners. This buttermilk potato rolls recipe will help you to fulfill all your dinner rolls needs, because it is an easy no-fail recipe for buns, as long as you follow the instructions carefully and use fresh yeast. Bun and bread recipes don’t always work, and one of the reasons could be that the yeast isn’t fresh enough. Packages or jars of yeast have a best before the date on them that should be followed strictly and when they are opened, should be refrigerated to keep the remaining yeast fresh. If you aren’t certain that your yeast is still alive, place some in warm water and allow to sit for ten minutes. If your yeast dissolves and foams, it is still alive and can be used for your buttermilk dinner rolls recipe.

There is almost nothing better than baking homemade bread and having the smell of fresh baking bread in your house, but homemade bread is also more natural than store-bought bread and is often better for you. Like any baked recipe that you do from home, you can control what goes into your dinner rolls recipe and feed your family foods that you feel good about. Grocery store bread require other ingredients to make them shelf-stable, and these aren’t necessarily bad for you, but if you have your doubts about consuming ingredient additives for the purpose of preserving bread, baking homemade bread is a terrific option to limiting your intake. This bun recipe uses a combination of whole wheat and white bread flour, too, so you can feel good about eating a higher fibre bread since most whole wheat flour brands have double or more fibre than white flour.

The best baking recipes are often the ones you don’t have to spend a lot of time standing over. This bread recipe is like that because a stand mixer does your mixing and there are several periods of resting the dough. If you don’t have a stand mixer, preparing this bun recipe is still possible to do by hand; just use a wooden spoon to stir all the ingredients together and knead the mixture by hand on a floured surface until the dough is smooth and elastic. Resting of the dough is important to this buttermilk bun recipe because it helps develop the flavour through fermentation and relaxes the gluten in the flour, producing a tenderer roll. This roll recipe is so delicious and easy; it will undoubtedly become a go-to bread recipe whenever you need bread to have alongside a hearty dish.

Another excellent fact about this fluffy potato roll recipe is that it is the perfect canvas for whatever mix-ins you want to use. Consider stirring some grated cheddar cheese, roasted garlic, and parmesan into the mix for a cheese bread version or pack it full of chopped herbs, like rosemary and thyme for a more fragrant version.
