1 Tbsp yeast
1 cup canned milk (or regular milk plus ¼ c sugar), scald until boiling in microwave
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup oil

Soften yeast in water and sugar and set aside. Add sugar, oil, and salt to scalded milk in large bowl. Cool slightly. Add eggs and stir well. Fold in yeast mixture. Add half of flour and mix well with wire whip. Add rest of flour and mix with wooden spoon. Dough will be very soft. Cover and let raise for 2-3 hours! (It can also go in fridge to raise, but it will take longer to raise after it is rolled into rolls.) Roll out on floured surface. Shape into desired shape. One way is to cut with round cutter, dip in butter, and then fold (using finger to press firmly through folded roll). Cover and let raise ½ hour. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. Makes about 18.

6-8 cups flour
Mix sugar and shortening, add warm water, potatoes, salt, eggs and 2 cups flour, add yeast and mix for 1 minute. Add remainder of flour to make soft dough. If using a bread mixer, add flour until dough pulls away clean from the sides of the bowl. Mix or knead for 4 minutes. Raise until double (1 to 1 1/2 hours). Roll out and let rise to desired height. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. For bundt pan rolls, melt a cube of butter and pour into a bundt pan. Roll out dough and cut with a biscuit cutter, stack around bundt pan, raise and bake.
This dough will refrigerate up to 2 weeks. It makes great scones and cinnamon rolls. Let refrigerated dough rise for an hour.
Queen Muffins by Grandma Thelma Mendenhall
¼ cup margarine
½ cup sugar
1 unbeaten egg
½ cup milk
1 ½ cup flour – before sifting
2 ½ tsp baking powder pinch salt

To make scones, you can heat the oil in whatever pan you want. I have never owned a deep fat fryer. Be careful not to let the grease get too much hotter than 350 degrees before cooking the scones. I tend to let the grease get too hot and then it starts smoking. Don’t fill the pan to high with oil, or it can boil over and ignite on the burner. Call me sometime so I can tell you about oil fires. I made scones with homemade bread dough, but the easiest way for you with only two people, is to buy Rhodes Bake and Serve Dinner Rolls or bread. They may even make scones, I don’t know. Look in the freezer section to see if there are pre-made scones. I know I’ve seen some, but don’t know the brand name. Just defrost the dough before frying. Heat the oil between med. and med. high heat until 350 degrees, or until the dough bubbles when you place a bit in to test it. When browned, flip in onto the next side until cooked. Drain on paper towels.
They can be doughy on the inside if cooked at too hot a temperature, or not long enough, so cut one open to see if it’s done. I’ve messed up a lot on these, so don’t give up!

ORANGE ROLLS by Kmberly Allan
2 Tbsp yeast
1/2 cup warm water (be careful not to get too hot)
2 cups milk (scalded) (I use reconstituted powdered milk)
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/3 cup orange juice
2 beaten eggs
7-8 cups flour (not sifted) (Or use half white whole wheat flour)
grate peel of two oranges
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter (not margarine)
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp. melted butter
1 Tbsp frozen orange juice concentrate
enough milk to make a spreadable consistency
I use this recipe for dinner rolls, dollar rolls (for shower sandwiches), and sweet rolls. Most Sunday’s I make this recipe for as many dinner rolls as I need, and use the rest as sweet rolls.Nothing beats a microplane for grating orange peel. When oranges are plentiful, I grate the peel before I use the oranges and freeze the zest to be used for these rolls. You can double recipe and still fit in a Bosch.
Scald milk and margarine in microwave (high for three minutes). You want to cool the milk mixture before adding the yeast. To that end, I add ingredients to milk mixture in this order: sugar, salt and orange juice. Add a few cups of the flour. Add eggs. Dissolve yeast in warm water and let sit for a few minutes. Add yeast mixture and remaining flour. Don’t overbeat. Mixture will form a very soft dough. Cover with cloth and let rise until double (about 40 minutes).
Spray cookie sheets with oil. Roll out to one half inch thick in rectangle. Spread with sugar mixture. Cut into strips about 1 inch wide and 6-7 inches long using a pizza cutter. Pick up strip (and lay on rest of sugared dough as a working surface). Twists and pull into a loose knot. Put on cookie sheet. Cover with cloth or saran wrap and let rise until doubled (about thirty minutes). Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes. Remove from pan and spread with citrus glaze. Can be frozen for about 3 weeks. (When serving, do not thaw, but warm directly in microwave.)
Can make into cinnamon rolls by omitting sugar mixture and spreading with 4 1/2 tablespoon butter; melted, and placing 1 cup brown sugar and 4 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon on top. Then, roll and slice into ¾ in slices with knife. Cover with cloth and let rise until doubled.
For dinner rolls, I cut in three inch circles, dip in melted butter, and place into a pan with two inch sides. If I make the rolls in the morning, I cover and place in fridge (without waiting for them to rise again) until I’m ready to bake them after church. They will rise in fridge. For dollar rolls, I cut into a one inch circle. They can be frozen until you need them for the shower.
