Cornbread Yeast Rolls

I love love love these rolls! A cross between cornbread and yeast roll, and so very delicious. The original recipe can be found at I did change it up a bit here on my site because I didn’t have self-rising cornmeal, a substitution had to be made. So if you have regular cornmeal you can use this recipe here, if you have self-rising cornmeal you can use the original recipe. They really are uniquely wonderful, trust me I know, I ate a lot of them today ;o).

    1. I know, I didn’t either. Will definitely be looking next time I am at the store. Maybe a higher demand for it in the South?
