recipe: mayonnaise rolls

no. it's not a mistake. you aren't seeing things.

that says mayonnaise.

i was looking for a cornbread recipe (to go with the chili i was making) in the few cookbooks i have (ya know because i didn't have jiffy in the cabinet & the hubs continually complains about the cornbread being sweet anyways)....

and everything i found called for buttermilk. which i don't have on hand. and i didn't have the substitute ingredients for buttermilk either.

so i chucked the cornbread idea & thought about making johnnycakes. but i didn't want to have to fry anything. (it was a lazy kinda night. that's why we were having chili in the first place! one pot to clean!)

i came across this recipe in a cookbook my husbands aunt bought me the first year we were married. it's one of those compilation cookbooks a bunch of bank employees put together.

i figured, all these recipes are from women in georgia, there has got to be something bread-like i can get away with making tonight.

well. i never made it to the cornbread.

on the first page i found this recipe for mayonnaise rolls, which kinda end up like muffins... and my husband says they remind him of hoecakes.

either way.
they were good.
fluffy & slightly chewy.
i'm going to play around with adding some other things for flavor, but this was a good trial run.

mayonnaise rolls
(yields approx. 9)

-1 cup self rising flour
-1 cup milk
-1 tsp mayonnaise

1. preheat oven to 400.

2. mix all ingredients until well blended & lump-free.

3. pour batter into muffin tin. (fill about the same as you would for cupcakes or muffins) i didn't spray my pan, but i think i will next time. they came out with a little effort, and didn't stick too bad.

4. bake for 20 minutes or until brown.

5. let cool slightly, remove from pan & enjoy!
