Servings 16


  • 1 pkg active dry yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 Teaspoon sugar divided
  • 1/4 cup warm water at least 110 degrees
  • 2 1/4 cups flour plus more for kneading
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons butter melted


  • 1. Combine the yeast packet, 1 Teaspoon sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small bowl. Let sit until foamy.
  • 2. Sift the flour,salt, and baking soda together.
  • 3. Heat the buttermilk on low heat, add the 1/4 cup butter to the pan, plus the 1 Tablespoon of sugar. Cook and stir JUST until butter is melted and sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat to cool slightly. Mixture should only be lukewarm.
  • 4. Place the yeast and buttermilk in a large bowl, stir to combine. Add the flour to the bowl a half cup at a time while beating on low speed. The dough will be slightly sticky. Place dough on a floured surface, knead for 5 minutes, adding flour as you knead to make a slightly tacky dough. Grease a large bowl, turn the dough to coat, cover with a cloth and let rise until doubled in a warm draft free place.
  • 5. Punch the dough down, form into balls. Place the dough balls on a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled in a warm draft free place.
  • 6. Bake the rolls at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown, brush with melted butter.
