About this recipe:I first made these in 2000. These are my favourite dinner rolls! I got the recipe out of a cookbook that famous country singers contributed to. This was sent in by Steve Wariner. You'll have no room for dinner after you start eating these! I make my rolls a bit bigger, so of course my yield is considerably less then recipe states. This recipe has also been tried in a bread machine with perfect results.

Combine 300g flour and yeast in a large mixer bowl. Heat milk, honey, margarine and salt just until warm (46 to 48 C) and margarine is almost melted, stirring constantly. Add to flour mixture; add eggs.
Beat at low speed of electric mixer for 30 seconds; scrape sides of bowl constantly. Beat for 3 minutes at high speed. Stir in as much remaining flour as you can mix in with a spoon.
Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 to 8 mins). Shape into a ball. Place dough in a greased bowl, then turn it once. Cover dough and let rise in a warm place till double (about 1 hour). Punch dough down; divide in half. Cover again; let rest 10 minutes.
Cut each dough half into 18 equal pieces. Roll into balls, and place in greased 6cm muffin tins. Let rise until doubled (about 30 minutes).
Bake in a 190 C / Gas mark 5 oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from tin. Cool on a wire rack.

It was a VERY wet mix. I added the extra 300g of flour during mixing and probably another 150g once turned out to make it kneadable. It was still a very sticky mix so I didn't knead for very long. Once it was ready to divide I added slightly more flour, rolling the balls in it to take the sticky edges away and it baked beautifully in 12 mins. I did one batch in a muffin pan as directed and they came out very nice, the rest I just popped onto a baking sheet and they were just as good. An absolute hit with the family. We thought they were delicious and soft. Only 3 lasted past dinner and they were all eaten hot from the oven. I'll definitely make these again. - 19 Feb 2015
