These were a big hit at Easter. I used 2 cupcake pans and the batter yielded 19 rolls. They all went! I'm not a baker but I found this recipe to be very reliable. You do need to look for self-rising flour. I thought all flour was self-rising. The one I used is Aunt Jemima brand.

Love this recipe!!! Especially like that it stores in fridge so I can make fresh rolls daily. Just don't store in a tightly closed container like I did over the holidays. As my husband loosened the jar lid warped by the pressure built up as the yeast worked its magic, it exploded, bruising his hand and spewing sticky dough all over the room. It was really funny but we won't have a repeat performance!
