Butter Buns from Make Ahead Bread by Donna Currie.  The easiest dinner rolls I’ve ever made!

Make Ahead Bread by Donna Currie is a must-have cookbook!  I am so proud of my good friend and Virtual Potluck partner of Cookistry!  Donna was already pretty famous for her bread making skills and it comes as no surprise for her cookbook to totally knock my socks off.

Make Ahead Bread has 100 recipes for Melt-in-Your-Mouth Fresh Bread Every Day Plus Butters & Spreads, there is something for everyone.  The recipes have a 2 step process where you mix and knead the bread and then let it rest for a day or so and then you bake it when you are ready.

The recipes are approachable and totally crave worthy! I’m sharing the recipe for Butter Buns.  I made these for Thanksgiving Dinner and they were seriously the easiest rolls I’ve ever made.  They were downright delicious with our prime rib roast.

  2. So hard to choose a favorite. It seems I have a different favorite all the time. A fave for sandwiches, for toast, for eating with soup, etc. I guess I’ll say sourdough today!

  3. ANything soft and warm. Something perfect to have with cheese or butter. A good crunchy baguettes works too.

  4. my all time favorite bread recipe is the simple no knead bread that gets baked in the dutch oven! Reminds me so much of good german, crusty bread!

  5. Wow! Will be making these soon. As for my favorite, no way, I’ve never eaten a bread I didn’t like! Thank you for the GREAT giveaway. Merry Christmas

  6. I have just discovered your website and can’t wait to do some more exploring! These butter buns look amazing! I love to make quick breads, too. This time of year, a good beer bread with chili for dinner is a favorite.
