Step 1

In the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment or a large bowl and hand mixer, combine water and yeast until dissolved (I do this in a small cup). Add sour cream, sugar, oil, salt, egg and 3/4 cup flour. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed.

Step 2

Add remaining 1 1/4 cups flour and mix until all the flour is incorporated, scraping down sides of bowl. The dough / batter will be sticky.

Step 3

Cover and let rise in the same bowl until doubled.

Step 4

Coat the wells of a 12-cup muffin tin with vegetable spray.

Step 5

Scoop the dough / batter into the wells, filling halfway.

Step 6

Cover and let rise until doubled.

Step 7

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Brush roll tops with egg white and sprinkle with poppyseeds or sesame seeds or leave plain.

Step 8

Bake 20-30 minutes or until lightly browned.

Step 9

Turn out of the pans and cool on a wire rack.

These don't really take long to make and I loved the muffin tin trick. I brushed a little melted butter on top before baking and they came out golden brown on top and soft and delicious inside. They went great with our Easter dinner and it's a good thing I doubled them because we ate every last one!
