"although easy to make, the appearance and taste of the rolls falls a little short."

"So easy and delicious!"

"I've never been able to make rolls that didn't have the consistency of hockey pucks (and I'm a pretty experienced cook), but these came out great. . . light texture, good flavor, and super quick. I couldn't believe how easy and fast they were, and still taste like you put lots of work into them! Thanks for a great recipe!"

"Upon reading reviews and the recipe, the reserved batter is to use 1 tsp. of batter on top of each of the rolls. The purpose looks to be to give it a "roll" look instead of a cupcake or muffin shape."

"These were easy and super delicious. Plan more time for rising than listed."
