A few weeks ago I received an email from Linda from Red Star Yeast. She was inviting me to be part of a promotion for a brand new revolutionary yeast called Red Star Platinum. This is a no-fail yeast that will inspire anyone from the novice baker to the pro. I love Red Star Yeast and have worked with them in the past so I was excited to be approached and even more excited to say YES.
You really need to try this yeast. It’s a no-brainer when it comes to getting delicious and professional results. And if you’re intimidated by bread, well this recipe will change your mind. It’s quick, it’s easy and you don’t need to slave over the floured board for 10 minutes. There’s “no knead” to fret over this recipe. I know, I know, I couldn’t help myself. Here’s some great info from Red Star about their new Platinum yeast:
Red Star® PLATINUM Superior Baking Yeast
- Simple to use. So forgiving it takes the intimidation out of baking with yeast!
- Strengthens the dough and improves dough tolerance to variations in kneading, rising, and flour quality.
- Produces consistent baked products home bakers will enjoy.
- Increases the amount of leavening retained in the dough.
- Decreases the risk of the dough collapsing after proofing or during baking.
So are you sold? I sure was, and they really mean what they say. Although this recipe is on the faster side, the dough rose beautifully and fast and the texture was perfect. With all of this said…would you like the opportunity to win some? Like a VIP package that includes several packages of yeast, an apron and a wood cutting board? Here’s what you need to do: GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!
Alysha from Shes On The Run!! You are the lucky duck! I will be emailing you shortly. Thank you to everyone who entered! I will be giving away a cookbook from Emeril Lagasse in the coming days so stay tuned!
No Knead Cheese Studded Dinner Rolls
An easy no knead recipe for dinner rolls that are quick and tasty.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 package Red Star Platinum Yeast
1/3 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, cut into 1 inch chunks
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup warm water (no hotter than 110 degrees F)
1 tablespoon olive oil

- In the bowl of a food processor (or a bowl) add the flour, yeast, Parmesan, garlic powder, sugar and salt and pulse to combine. In a small glass measure, add the warm water and olive oil and with the food processor running add the water mixture. Continue to run the machine until the dough comes together into a ball. Flour a board and turn the dough out onto the board. Pat into a ball and cover with a medium glass bowl. Allow to rest for 30 minutes.
