Mom and I spent our day laughing and singing Christmas songs while baking bread for the school’s Christmas dinner tomorrow. When it came to holiday rolls or biscuits, my aunt had her ways. I thought her very creative for trying something out of the blue like this–I admire her cooking skills for this also.
After my aunt tried it, so did my mom and her other sister. Now it’s very common in our family.And now I wanted to share the recipe with y’all.
- 4 cups of all purpose flour
- 2 cups warm water
- 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp yeast
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2-3 tsp salt
Put flour in a bowl. Go to the sink and get one cup of warm water, pour it in the bowl with the flour. Retrieve another cup of warm water, this time set it aside and fetch the yeast and sugar. Then combine the yeast and sugar with the cup of warm water. Pour the combined ingredients into the bowl. Then add the vegetable oil with the flour, water, sugar and yeast. After that add the required salt. (I personally measure with eye estimates, therefore i don’t have the exact amount of salt. Go by your own judgment.) Knead dough and let rise for an hour.
After that knead it down again.
After the next hour is up, cut dough down into handful sizes. Hint: a good way to do it is to grab a hand full of dough and cut it.
- After you have cut all the dough, roll the pieces into equal sized rolls.
- Once you have done that, divide the roll into three pieces and repeat the same process.
- Finally, when you have three even sized rolls, place them in a greased cupcake pan.
When that is done, set them aside and let rise for an hour to an hour and a half. Note: The longer you let them rise, the fluffier they will be.
Bake them at 400 degrees until golden brown. This should make from fifty to sixty biscuits.
“Whatever you do, do it with love.” I will forever remember how Mom and I flicked flour on each other and shared old time stories, while the cat napped on the floor. <3
