Sweet Dinner Rolls

What you need: 

2 tablespoons yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup margarine (Earth Balance is the best for this)
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 teaspoons Ener-g egg replacer
6 tablespoons warm water
4 1/2 cups flour

What you do: 

1. Mix yeast and 1/4 cup warm water in a small bowl, set aside. In a saucepan, melt margarine, water, sugar, and salt. Let cool.
2. In a large bowl, mix egg replacer and warm water with a whisk until blended. Add the yeast mixture and the margarine mixture, stir to combine.
3. Add the flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing as you go. It will create a sticky dough. Let rise, covered, until doubled in size. Punch it down, cover with a damp cloth or saran wrap, and place in refrigerator overnight or for at least 3 hours.
4. Roll out flat and cut into circles for traditional rolls or roll into balls and place 3 balls into muffin tins to create clover rolls.
5. Shape and let rise until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 12-17 minutes (check frequently after 12 minutes), until lightly browned on top.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I'm going to try this recipe, again.  It's great! I'm still going to use the bread machine and probably the same amounts of the other ingredients.  If I change something, I'll let you all know.  The main change is the use of oil instead of Earth Balance.  Earth Balance is a little pricey.  I'm going to see if I can get similar results as before.  I've found some information online about substituting oil and butter; so, hopefully I'll measure that ingredient correctly.

Okay, I made the dough in my bread machine as I did the last time.  Instead of water I used plain soymilk.  I did use 6 tablespoons of oil instead of the Earth Balance.  I used a tablespoon of instant yeast (I think I need just a little bit more - maybe a teaspoon or so because it took a little while longer for my dough to rise the first time - the same thing happened with my other recipe modification, too).  I realize that by using the dough cycle on my bread machine, the machine is kneading the dough and so this is definitely not a no knead adaptation.  I also didn't refrigerate the dough, but used it right away and shaped the rolls. I did melt some Smart Balance Light and put some on the rolls while they were doing their second rise, too. I used a mix of all purpose and bread flour, too. The rolls were so fluffy and delicious. 

In summary:

Substitutions:
6 tablespoons of (I used canola) oil (instead of the Earth Balance)
1 cup of plain soymilk (instead of the water)
1 tablespoon of instant yeast (instead of 2 tablespoons; however, I may have a little bit more because it did take my dough a bit longer to rise)

Order of ingredients in my breadmachine:
1. wet ingredients go first (water/soymilk, "eggs," sugar, salt, oil/melted margarine)
2. flour
3. make a well in the flour to add the yeast

I'm going to add a second picture to the photo album for this recipe.

These were really good!!! I changed the recipe so that I could make the dough in my bread machine.  Also, I didn't refrigerate the dough, but used it right away after it was done rising in the bread machine.  I used only a tablespoon of instant yeast (I'm almost positive, but just use any yeast that's appropriate for bread machines.  The reason that I'm not sure is because I threw away the bulk packaging from BJ's; so, I'm not 100% sure that it wasn't another variety of yeast that's appropriate for bread machines.).  Judging by other bread machine recipes that I've seen, I don't think that you need as much yeast for bread machine recipes.  I didn't mix the yeast with water, but added it as the final ingredient on top of the flour.  So, I dropped the water that would have been mixed with the yeast.  I also added a little bit more flour because I was concerned that it would be too sticky.

Addition:  a little bit more flour
Subtraction: 1/4 cup of water that would have been mixed with the yeast & 1 tablespoon of the yeast

Order of ingredients:
1. Liquids first (that's the margarine, sugar, salt, water, and "eggs")
2. Flour
3. Make a well in the flour to add the yeast

I had a very hard time accepting that kneading was not part of the instructions and resisted the urge to add the extra elbow grease. And guess what - they were just fine! Definitely worth making.

Had to laugh, coz I couldn't resist the urge and kneaded the flour into the dough the last cup and a half. Still turned out fantastic! Wonderful recipe. Well worth the time and effort. :-)

Yum. I was having a craving for sweet yeast rolls yesterday and I found these. I have to add here that I am thankful for the simple, descriptive title the poster used which made it easy to choose this recipe. Anyway, these were nice and sweet and incredibly easy. I had a very hard time accepting that kneading was not part of the instructions and resisted the urge to add the extra elbow grease. And guess what - they were just fine! Definitely worth making.

These rolls were so good!!!! They had a perfect amount of sweetness to them and were as fluffy as a cloud! They were the best rolls I have ever made vegan or not! I used a different powdered egg replacer from this website and it worked outt beautifully! Thank you so much for the recipe! Defineitely making these again!

These were excellent for Christmas dinner--everybody at the table loved them and there were none left over.  I had to add about 1/4 cup more flour to make a manageable (but still sticky) dough.  I forgot to take a picture unfortunately, turned out really cute as clover rolls.  Will make again for special occasions.

Ooops, I just realized there is a typo in my recipe. Ignore the part where it says "melt butter with margarine." There should be no butter in this recipe. This is a roll recipe that I worked hard to veganize. The original recipe used butter, but this one tastes great with earth balance margarine instead.
