What do I do when the humidity gets really high? - I make yeast bread. Nothing makes yeast rolls rise faster than a humid summer afternoon. Yeast rolls might be the only thing that likes these temperatures but I figured I would make the best of it and bake rolls today. I tried to take pictures of each step along the way as I made my rolls so that you could literally see how I do it.
2 ¼ teaspoons yeast 1/3 cup sugar
½ cup water 1 egg
½ cup milk ¾ teaspoon salt
½ cup butter 4-4 ½ cups flour
Dissolve yeast in warm water. (Not too hot)
Add milk, butter, sugar, egg, salt and 2 c. flour. Beat 2 minutes on medium in mixer. Stir in remaining flour. Knead 6-8 minutes.
Place in greased bowl, cover and let rise 1 hour.
Divide dough in half and roll each half into a 12” circle. Cut each into 12 wedges.
Roll up from wide end and place 2” apart on cookie sheets. Cover and let rise 30 minutes.
Bake 12-14 minutes at 375. Brush with melted butter while warm.
