  • 2 to 2-¼ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 (2-1/4 tsp) packet Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Instant Yeast (make sure it’s not expired or it won’t rise)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsweetened, plain soy milk
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter


  1. Combine 3/4 cup flour, sugar, dry yeast and salt in a large bowl, stir until blended.
  2. Combine soy milk, water and vegan butter in a small microwave-safe bowl.
  3. Microwave on HIGH in 15 second increments. If you have a food thermometer, the temp. should be at 120° to 130°F. If you don’t have one, it should be very warm but not hot to the touch. Any hotter will kill the yeast.
  4. Add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
  5. Add 1/4 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in just enough of the remaining flour (1 to 1-1/4 cups) so that the dough will form into a ball. Knead on lightly floured surface until elastic and springs back when lightly pressed with 2 fingers, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  6. Cover w/ a towel; let rest for 10 minutes.
  7. Cut dough into 12 equal pieces; shape into balls using your hands.
  8. Place in greased 8-inch pan.
  9. Cover w/ towel; let rise in warm place until doubled in size, ~30 minutes.
  10. Bake in preheated 375ºF oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan by running a knife around the edges and invert onto a wire rack; brush with additional melted butter.
