I wanted to love this recipe more than I did. But, perhaps I just enjoy a different type of dinner roll.

My son, on the other hand, really enjoyed these Banana Dinner Rolls.

The rolls are more dense than I would prefer a dinner roll to be. And I fully expected that as there were no instructions for allowing the yeast to proof.

My Notes and Suggestions for this Recipe:

If you’d like a more fluffy dinner roll, I suggest: (1) Adding anywhere from 1/2 cup of water or milk up to 1 cup. (2) Adding a teaspoon of Crisco for the yeast to feed on. (3) Warming the liquid and allowing your yeast to proof in the water or milk for 5 minutes before adding to the banana and vanilla mixture. (4) I typically use 1 tsp of yeast per 1 cup of flour. I would suggest increasing the yeast based on the amount of flour used.

Either way that you choose to make this recipe, I hope that you enjoy it and let me know how it went.
