1) baking bread from scratch and
2) Baking from my vintage "Joy of Cooking~ 1943 edition" cookbook
Plus with an alternate name such as fan tans, I thought Fan-Tan-tastic!!!
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 *yeast cake or 1 pkg. of active dry yeast
- 2 tsp. salt
|Yeah, I got to use my new digital multi-purpose thermometer!|
Let the rolls rise in a warm place until they have doubled in size.
Then bake at 425 F for 15 to 20 min., until lightly brown and serve!
Note: This recipe is also in the updated 75th anniversary edition of Joy of Cooking under Buttermilk Rolls with very little variation, new edition uses only 1 1/2 C. buttermilk and it has nice illustrations. *yeast cake: I was a little intimidated by this, because honestly I had never heard of a yeast cake, but it is just a different form of the yeast and is actually still sold today, but I have never ran across any!
So, there you go, my first version of Fan Tans, Buttermilk roll style and a recipe from my 1943 Joy of Cooking cookbook, I promise next time to make something that is not in the updated 75th anniversary edition as well, but it was neat to compare the two recipes slight differences and the wording from the two is very different!
I am hoping next time my bread will rise a little more so maybe it is a little more flaky and condensed together vs. such distinct "fans" of bread, but they were still yummy!
So, if your arm needs a little workout rolling out some dough or you have some leftover buttermilk, or you are just craving some yummy, buttery, homemade bread then please give these a try!
Until next time,
