Since moving to the cottage for the summer, I have been attending farmers’ markets almost every week. I go for the fresh fruits and vegetables but I have fallen in love with the dinner rolls/buns sold by the local Hutterite colony. They are white, fluffy and slightly sweet…..and addictive. We had company for dinner last week and the last two buns were snarfled down before I could grab one. I almost cried! Who knew that homemade dinner rolls were so much better than store bought?
I decided enough was enough and I needed to find an alternate source to feed my addiction. Off I went to Google “Hutterite Buns Recipe”. Hutterites are a religious group that live in communal colonies throughout the prairies of Canada. Since they share everything, most of their recipes started with a 25 pound bag of flour. While my family loves bread, I wasn’t sure I wanted to make THAT big of a batch. Thankfully I eventually found a recipe on an online board that made a semi-doable size batch. Unfortunately, I didn’t read the instructions thoroughly so I ended up having to bake these at midnight. At least the house was cooler so the heat from the oven didn’t make the house unbearable.
Overall, these buns are awesome. I do think they need a bit of salt so I will be adding some the next time I make them (probably a couple of teaspoons). A schmear of salted butter made up for the lack of salt pretty easily though.
This recipe made 3 pans of small dinner rolls (10 rolls per pan) and ~18 large rolls.

Merry, beautiful! I love homemade dinner rolls. I agree, I'd definitely add salt to the next batch, at least 2 teaspoons. I go through a lot of flour, but there's no place around here that sells it in 25-pound bags. :D

I only use 7 cups of flour and it comes to perfect consitancy. 8 cups will dry the dough out. I also add 3/4 tablespoon of salt. I made it without the salt before and it tasted sweet but plain. The salt will give it a nice round flavor.

The amount of flour totally depends on where you live and how dry it is there at the time. Eight cups worked perfectly for me so it just depends.
