Pudding Rolls

Can you imagine a fall-time dinner without dinner rolls?

I certainly can’t.

When I think of dinner this time of year, I think of some good homemade soup, a great soft roll, and maybe a few green beans.

I’m not going to talk about green beans, though. Let’s zoom in on those soft Pudding Rolls. When you pick one up fresh from the oven, you could squish it flat as a pancake because it’s so soft and fluffy. But what’s the fun in that? I like to open mine up and slather on some butter. And maybe some honey. Mmmm.

 Some of you might have a favorite dinner roll of your own. Or maybe you don’t. Maybe you want to try something new, exiting, and different.

This is definitely a different recipe. But a good recipe, none the less.

When my mom pulled out my great grandma’s old recipe, I confess I was slightly skeptical.

Pudding?

In a roll? 

Now remember, I’m a picky eater, so “pudding+roll” might sound good to you, but to me, in my mind, it couldn’t see it tasting good. I’ve learned since we’ve started this food blog that I might actually like something new if I dared to try it.

And I did try these Pudding Dinner Rolls.  And they were good.  And they didn’t taste like pudding! You’d think these rolls would be sweet, but they’re not. They have a mild flavor that makes them perfect for any comfort meal.

Eggless Dinner Rolls

Another unique thing about these rolls: No eggs. Pudding, yeast, milk, butter, water, salt, and flour, but no eggs. So if you have an egg allergy, today’s your lucky day. I have a cousin who is allergic to a lot of things, including eggs, so he will be very happy to know that he can eat these rolls!

Would this recipe do well if I put it in the Refrigerator to rise overnight? This recipe is Awesome”. It will be my go to recipe for dinner rolls. I’m going to see if I can find a pineapple Instant pudding mix, because this would be a great Copycats for Hawaiian rolls. This is a keeper ✴✴✴✴✴‼

I made these exactly as the recipe stated and for me they are a non-repeater. It was way more work than it was worth and there is no sweetness to the taste at all. I was expecting them to to taste more like Hawaiian rolls. I have recipes for similar rolls that are a lot less work and taste much better. I ended up feeding these to the birds after they sat uneaten for 3 days in a house with 3 men who love bread. My advice would be to skip this recipe.
