Quick Rise Cast Iron Honey Rolls

I can’t explain it at all. There’s no rhyme or reason to my cravings – they just happen.


  • 1 cup Warm Water

  • 2 packets Quick Rise Yeast

  • 2 tbsp. + ½ cup Honey, Divided

  • 2 Eggs

  • 1 stick Room Temperature Butter

  • 4 cups Bread Flour

  • 1 tsp. Salt

  • 1 stick Room Temperature Butter

  • 2 tbsp. Honey


  • In a measuring cup, combine water, yeast, and honey. Whisk with a fork until all combined. Set aside.
  • Get your stand mixer out and add eggs. If you forgot to let the butter come to room temperature first, just throw it in a bowl and microwave it for 12-15 seconds. Add it to the mixer along with the ½ cup of honey. By now the yeast should have a good ½” foam layer on top. If not, toss it and start the process again. If it is good to go, add it to the mixer as well.
  • Fit the mixer with your paddle attachment. Turn the mixer on low to allow the ingredients to come together. Slowly add each cup of flour and let it incorporate before adding another cup. Before you get to the last cup, add the salt. *You want to add the salt at the end because it can kill your yeast.*
  • When all the flour has been incorporated, allow the mixer to knead the dough for 3-5 minutes or until it is smooth. It will still be sticky to the touch.
  • Grease a cast iron skillet liberally. Flour your hands to prevent the dough from sticking. Grab a small handful of dough and roll it into a ball. Place the dough ball into the cast iron skillet and continue this same process until the rest of the dough is rolled into balls and arranged in the skillet.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 F. Place skillet on the stove while the oven preheats. Once the oven is preheated, bake them for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the honey butter by combining the butter and honey in a bowl. Place back in the refrigerator to cool off.
  • When the rolls are finished, remove them from the oven and slather the tops with the honey butter. Serve them piping hot with the remaining honey butter.
