Moomie’s Buns

A group of my foodie friends have been making and praising these Moomie’s buns for years. It took a lovely gift of yeast from the folks at Red Star Yeast to push me into baking these.  I had a nice stash of Red Star Quick Rise Yeast which worked perfectly.

I was also the winner of a Red Star Yeast giveaway featured on Shulie’s delectable blog, Food Wanderings. I will be baking LOTS of yummy breads. I tracked down the origin of this recipe to these Beautiful Burger Buns shared on the KAF online community. These Yeast Rolls garnered rave reviews plus I noticed this same bread baker also had a cinnamon bun recipe. Those will be up next!

How to Make This Yeast Roll Recipe

Frequently used as hamburger buns, I decided to make dinner rolls from this yeast roll recipe. It was Nick’s last night home from his college spring break, and oldest son, Tom, would join us for dinner, too. I used a technique for making rosettes I saw on this Youtube video to form these yeast roll knots.

Basically, you roll out a snake of dough, at least a foot in length. Tie a knot, then tuck the tail that is coming from the bottom up into the middle of the knot, then tuck the other tail (coming from the top of the knot) under the knot and press into the middle. Gently cradle the bun and pat to round out. Watch the video. It will make the procedure SO much clearer.

Easy Yeast Rolls

The menfolk of the family were dying to dig into these yeast rolls, and there were lots of compliments at dinner. I sent some Moomie’s buns home with both Nick and Tom. I should have made a double batch! Best.Rolls.Ever.

These yeast roll knots are SO quick to make with the instant yeast. The dough is a bit sticky, but don’t give into temptation and add more flour as the recipe produces such a tender, delicious bread as is. Whip up a batch of  these Easy Yeast Rolls for your next family dinner!
