  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water , comfortably warm, not hot
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons yeast
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk , room temp
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup light vegetable oil ( I use peanut oil)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs , room temperature
  • 4 - 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup butter , melted (for brushing the rolls)


  • Preheat the oven to 400F
  • Add the sugar and yeast to the warm water and set aside for 10 minutes
  • Cover the eggs with hot water from the tap to warm them until needed
  • Warm the buttermilk so that it is just warm to the touch
  • Beat the eggs slightly and add them to the yeast mixture with the buttermilk, salt, oil, and baking powder.
  • Pour the whole mixture into a mixing bowl fitted with the dough hook.
  • Add the 4 cups of flour and and mix for one minute
  • Check to see if the dough is too sticky and add more flour if necessary.
  • Mix for another minute.
  • Turn the dough out and knead lightly just to pull it together.
  • Cut it into 18 - 24 equal pieces and shape quickly into rolls.
  • Brush them with melted butter.
  • Arrange them on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
  • Let rise in a warm place for 10 minutes.
  • Place in the preheated oven.
  • Bake at 10 minutes, or until done.
  • Brush with melted butter, again.
