Rolls That Didn't Work For Me


I found a great, easy recipe for rolls and I couldn't wait to give it a try!

Poor Man's Roll

From: Hillbilly Housewife

1 cup of flour
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 cup of mayonaise

Mix ingrediants together. Grease cupcake pan. Pour mixture half way in each portion of pan.
Bake at 350 degrees until brown. About thirty minutes. I use a tooth pick to check. Done if clear.

I followed the directions, except I used my mini muffin pan, instead of a standard one. Since I used the min pan, I reduced the baking time to 20 minutes. I check it and it didn't seem done. I set the timer for 5 minutes more--still not done. UGH. I check with a toothpick and it comes out clean. It didn't rise or brown. Here's what it looked like when I decided to get it out of the oven:

Even though they didn't "look" done, they were. They were just the right size for a toddler to pick up. The toddlers have eaten them a few times with no complaints. They were quite flat for me.

The only thing I can think of is that I was suppose to use self rising flour? I don't keep that on hand, so I can't try that any time soon. Have you made this recipe work for you?

The only thing I can think of is like you maybe it was self rising flour she used. Other then that I am not sure. You could try emailing Hillybillys Housewife and see if she has the answer.

This is simple enough to give it a try soon. I'm pretty sure I have some self rising flour on hand. Thanks for linking to Monday Munchies!

It seems to need some sort of leavening agent which would have been in the sr flour. Perhaps that was the problem. Come share your slow cooker recipes at Crock Pot Wednesday. I would love to see you there. diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com

All you need to do is add some baking powder, salt and baking soda to make self rising flour. Here is a quick recipe for self rising flour:
2 cups of plain flour
1/8 tsp of salt
2 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of baking soda

Thank you Kristi! I didn't think of making my own :) . . . . now you have me thinking!

I think the problem with this recipe is that it needs baking powder and salt.. Try adding 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. The baking powder is a leavening and the salt is for taste so the recipe won't be so flat tasting. Hope this works for you. Geri
