“Another one from my very old 5-Roses book. Please note that these can be readied the night before and stored in the pans in the fridge overnight and baked in the morning. If you are on a real health kick, just pass over this recipe. Don't look! The recipe says the yield is 16, but most muffin tins are only 12. You can cut them a bit thicker and increase the baking time a bit.”
12-16 rolls
