No Knead Dinner Rolls or Buns - NOTE CORRECTION

I do enjoy baking bread and rolls/buns but sometimes I'm just not in the mood for all the kneading. Actually if it wasn't for the kneading process I'd be baking a lot more bread. Well one day I searched and found a recipe for some yeast buns that do not require any kneading. It soon became one of my favorite yeast recipes.

Here it is:

1 1/4 c white flour
1 c whole-wheat flour
2 T sugar
1 t salt
2 1/4 t yeast
1 c hot water
2 T vegetable shortening
1 egg (slightly beaten)

Mix all but one cup of flour together with the sugar, salt and yeast in a bowl. Add the water, shortening and egg. Beat until smooth with a spoon. Stir in the rest of the flour. Mound batter in the center of the bowl and let rise in a warm place for about 1/2 hr or til double in size.

Spray 12 regular muffin tin cups w/cooking spray. Stir down batter by beating 25-30 strokes. Spoon into muffin tins and let rise about 20-30 min until the batter rises over the tops of the cups.

Bake in 400 degree oven for about 15 or until golden brown.

If you want you can add a bit of ground flax seed or wheat germ to the mix or sprinkle a bit of wheat germ on the top before popping in the oven. These taste best when slightly warm.

Oh, I make no-knead bread all the time! I love it. It tastes so different for some reason. More rustic. And yummy.

That sounds interesting - I will have to give it a try.
