Buttermilk milk has been a great ingredient to include in items such pancakes and waffles. Why not include this ingredient in dinner rolls too? This whole idea made me excited to give these one hour buttermilk rolls recipe a try.
When it comes to buttermilk in pancakes or waffles, it usually adds nice tenderness to the texture. It can also add a little bit of a tang to the flavor. I figured it would give similar results if it was used in a dinner roll. It absolutely did just that.
These one hour buttermilk rolls were so soft and tender. There is also just an ever so slight tang to the roll. I love to eat these rolls with homemade jam. The sweet jam compliments that slight tang in these rolls so well.
One thing that suprised me is these rolls turn brown so perfectly. I think the buttermilk just may be why these rolls brown so beautifully. The looked so perfectly golden brown when I pulled them out of the oven.
