This is my BASIC ROLL MIX used for several recipes now and in the future. It saves time... and it's adapted from Make-A-Mix Cookery's HOT ROLL MIX.

To make it you will need 1 large container to store it in. I use a large round clear plastic bin - I bought it at Wal*mart in Germany - back when they still had Wal*mart in Germany. Then label it - very important!

20 cups (5 lbs. or 2 kilos) all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups (240 grams) white sugar
4 teaspoons (20 grams) salt
1 cup (116 grams) dry milk powder

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl or in the large plastic container you plan to store it in. Stir together to distribute evenly. I use a large wire whisk for this. Store in cool, dry place. Use within 6 to 8 months. Makes about 22 cups of BASIC ROLL MIX.

To make BASIC DOUGH (enough for 12 sweet rolls):

Combine in a mixing bowl 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast, 3/4 cup warm water - let sit to become foamy. Then add 1 egg, beaten and 1/4 cup melted margarine or vegetable oil. Mix in 3 cups BASIC ROLL MIX and extra flour if needed to make a soft, not too sticky elastic ball of dough. Put into a bowl buttered with oil and turn to coat. Place someplace warm like the oven on it's lowest setting for at least an hour to rise, covered with plastic wrap.
