I have so many different Bread recipes pinned lately and it seems like I just don’t get to try them all, sigh. Having too much bread isn’t very healthy they tell me but surely if I make it instead of buy it it is ‘more’ healthy! 🙂

Here is a recipe for some amazing Butterhorns that I have made a few times and they are so good!

food (2)


  • 1 cups milk, scalded
  • 1 package yeast -dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  1. Soften the active dry yeast in warm water.
  2. Combine hot milk, butter, sugar and salt: cool to lukewarm. (Very important to cool or it will kill the yeast if its too hot!)
  3. Add 1/2 cup of the flour.
  4. Add yeast mixture and eggs. Beat well.
  5. Stir in remaining flour or enough to make a very soft dough.
  6. Turn out on lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 5 to 8 minutes.
  7. Place dough in bowl and let rise until double – about 1-2 hours (but will vary based on home temp).
  8. Divide into 3 equal parts. Roll each part on lightly floured board to a 9 inch circle.
  9. Brush with melted butter.
  10. Cut each circle into 12 wedges (like a pizza): roll each wedge, starting with wide end and rolling to point
  11. Arrange rolls, poin down, on greased cookie sheet: brush with melted butter.
  12. Cover and let rise till very light (about 45 minutes).

    Bake in hot oven (400 degrees) 10-12 minutes.

  13. Makes three dozen rolls.

  1. I agree with you, I think when the bread is homemade it’s much more healthy for you – you can pronounce all the ingredients. But I do watch the carb intake. These look so yummy. Perfectly golden brown.
