But we know sometimes you need to scroll fast. So now we have a quick sourdough roll for you that is heavenly in its own right and a perfect recipe to keep up your sleeve for those nights when you want to serve hot homemade rolls quickly.
Yeast Options for Rapid Rise Skillet Rolls:
The best yeast to use for making rolls is instant dry yeast. This can also be labeled instant yeast, instant yeast, or instant yeast. Instant yeast works faster and doesn’t require any proofing, making it ideal for easy bread making.
What is instant dry yeast?
Instant dry yeast is very similar to active dry yeast, and they can be used interchangeably in recipes in equal amounts. The difference is that instant dry yeast has smaller particles and does not need to be dissolved in water to be used in recipes. It doesn’t need to be proofed, which means it doesn’t need to be in warm liquid with sugar to start growing. It will start working in recipes right away, reducing rise time.
Pro tip: This recipe uses plenty of yeast to keep the fermentation time as short as possible. If your house is on the cooler end, you may want to create a warmer environment for it to proof or rise. Warm, humid conditions between 80 and 90 degrees are ideal for sourdough bread. If your house is below 70 to 75 degrees, your rolls won’t rise as fast.
Do I need to certify my bread:
This recipe doesn’t require you to proof your bread, but it might come in handy during winter and cooler weather when your house may not be ideal enough to rise quickly. However, if your house is running on the cooler side, the rise time may be longer than 20 minutes.
How to proof bread:
for smaller recipes, like this one, you pop bread in the microwave for a quick rise with a cup of steaming hot water. Close the door and let the dough rise.
for larger recipes, or for those with smaller microwaves, you can proof the bread in the oven. Heat the oven to 150 degrees. Turn off the oven, put the dough in the oven, and close the door immediately. The initial heat wave will cause your rolls to rise quickly, and the oven will continue to stay in the warmer temperature zone, even as it cools, which is ideal for quick rises.
