Trisha Yearwood no other side knows that screams comfort food more than homemade buns. Eaten warm and spread with butter, jelly or both, enjoying this side dish always puts a smile on your face. Yearwood’s mom, Gwen, came up with a buttermilk bun recipe that’s reminiscent of a time when life seemed a little simpler. When gathering around the table was important and eating bread for dinner was the norm.
According to Yearwood, these buttermilk buns remain a family favorite
Yearwood and her sister Beth showed how to make these delicious buns.
The title of the episode was “Shoebox Memories”. In this special edition of Trisha’s southern kitchenYearwood and Beth took a walk down memory lane and reminisced about theirs Mom’s favorite family recipes from the shoe box.
The menu features Yearwood family favorites like Buttermilk Buns, Creamed Spinach Bake, Oven Grilled Chicken and $100 Caramel Frosted Cupcakes.
Yearwood told it once Southern living that she learned to cook out of necessity after moving to Nashville to start her music career.
“I learned to cook after moving to Nashville. I was homesick and missed my mother’s kitchen, so I tried to make her potato salad. I cried when it tasted like hers. That memory of home was comforting,” she explained.
The ingredients for buttermilk buns
The ingredients for buttermilk buns are simple.
Many are pantry staples that most have handy.
These include buttermilk, butter, sugar, and baking powder.
You will also need a pack of dry yeast, flour and salt.
If you don’t have buttermilk, don’t fret.
To make buttermilk, pour milk into a measuring cup and take out a tablespoon to return to the container.
Replace that tablespoon with white vinegar and mix well.
The milk curdles easily and thickens. This mixture becomes the buttermilk substitute.
How to put together this comforting side dish for dinner
Heat the buttermilk, butter and sugar in a saucepan until it comes to a slow simmer. Stir in baking soda quickly as it will activate. Take it from the stove and let it cool off.
In a separate cup, add lukewarm water and stir in yeast. Allow the yeast to activate before stirring it into the buttermilk.
In a larger bowl, mix together the flour and salt. Add liquid and mix until the dough comes together. Knead until smooth, then cover with cling film and allow to rise.
Grease a rectangular baking dish before slicing the south into 12 pieces.
Roll each into a ball before placing in the bowl. Cover with cling film and let rise again.
Once fully risen, place in the oven to bake. Buns are made with brown on top.
