Ahhhhh, peanut butter, my husbands extreme weakness!  When deciding what lovely Red Star Yeast recipe I wanted to make, this was number one on my list!  I mean seriously- who can’t resist moist bread drenched in peanut buttery happiness?

Peanut Butter Batter Rolls with Red Star Yeast

Have you tried any of Red Star Yeast recipes yet?  Here are a few I have shared here on CafeTerraBlog – Kale Chips, Roasted Garlic, Parmesan Swirl Egg Bread, Butternut Squash Pizza Dough, Chocolate Coffee Pull Apart Bread, Homemade New York Style Bagels, and Grilled Venison and Veggie Pizza.  Any recipe you try will be a success trust me!

I have tried other yeast from my grocery stores, but always come running back to Red Star Yeast!  Their recipes are easy to follow, and the yeast always ensures my bread will provide perfect end results everytime!

Peanut Butter Batter Rolls with Red Star Yeast

Are you nervous around yeast?  Do you shy away from making bread recipes?  Red Star Yeast has a website that is user friendly, and provides guidance through your whole bread making process!

Here is a fun tip shared on Red Star Yeast to check and see if the yeast you have tucked away in your cupboard is still fresh.  All you need is a calibrated thermometer and a measuring cup.  Do you know how to calibrate a thermometer?  Just get a glass of 1/2 water and 1/2 ice, place your thermometer in the ice bath- the thermometer in the ice bath should read 32 degrees Fahrenheit (which, of course, is the freezing point.)  If you have a thermometer that you can adjust- reset it if it is not accurate,  just remember for your calibrated thermometer you can have a (+ or -)  two degree variance.  Once you have a calibrated thermometer, follow the easy steps to see if your yeast is fresh.

Peanut Butter Batter Rolls with Red Star Yeast

The Peanut Butter Batter Buns recipe is from Red Star Yeast, and was very easy and fun recipe to make!  I did get a little creative so that I could have them all cooked together in one pan (it just means you have to add a wee bit more flour to hold each roll together.)  Growing up,  my mom always made delicious pecan rolls in one pan, with sugary pecan happiness drenched on the delicious rolls….soooooo good!!

Peanut Butter Batter Buns
Save RecipeSave Recipe


Bread Flour 1 1/2 cup
Active Dry Yeast 2 and 1/4 tsp
Sugar 2 Tbsp
Salt 1/2 tsp
Milk 1/2 cup
Water 1/4 cup
Butter or margarine 2 Tbsp
1 large Egg
Sugar 1/2 cup
Chopped peanuts 1/2 cup
Peanut butter 1/4 cup
Honey 2 Tbsp
Butter or margarine 1/4 cup


In large mixer bowl, combine 1 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. In saucepan, heat milk, water and butter to 120-130°F (butter does not need to melt). Add to flour mixture. Add egg. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, gradually stir in remaining flour to make a stiff batter. Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled, about 45 minutes. Stir down batter. Prepare Topping by combining all ingredients until smooth; spoon into greased muffin cups. Spoon batter over Topping. Cover; let rise in warm place until light, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Invert immediately onto cooling rack. Serve warm or cold.

You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) in place of Active Dry Yeast in batter/no knead recipes. When using Instant Yeast, expect your batter/dough to rise faster - about 50% faster. Adjust your rise times accordingly. Traditional methods: use equal amounts; Bread Machine: use 1/2 tsp Instant Yeast OR 3/4 tsp Active Dry Yeast per cup of flour in your recipe.
