To be more precise, I love homemade bread. I was told by a friend that she doesn’t know anyone who makes bread at home, but I grew up in a household where baking bread is a part of our culture. I’ve shared images on my Instagram, as well as recipes like my homemade plait bread here on my blog and on my YouTube channel in the past, and I’m happy to bring you another amazing bread recipe using Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast, and that is for Sweet Bread Rolls!

I’ve had sweet bread from some of the Guyanese bakeries and have experimented in the past with making my own. I’ve even used the fruit mix from black cake in my dough and it was amazing! This recipe I’m sharing is very easy and approachable for the cook who’s intimidated by homemade bread.   Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast​ makes the process quick and easy! Over the years, I’ve always used Fleischmann’s® yeast for all of my bread recipes, but the Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast version is a game changer. If you haven’t made bread at home, then you are missing out because nothing tastes as good as fresh homemade bread made with Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast​. What makes this bread so easy is that there is no double rise time. You mix the dough, roll out the rolls and let them sit before baking! Baking with yeast can seem intimidating, but it’s not! Here are a few things you can do to ensure success. Be sure the yeast isn’t expired, as expired yeast is less likely to rise. Be sure the liquid that you are using to mix with the yeast is not too hot or it will kill the yeast and the dough won’t rise. I love the satisfaction that comes from making your own baked goods at home! Fleischmann’s has 150 years of experience so you can count on their products and relax and enjoy the process! Be sure to follow the packet instructions. Now on to the recipe! 



  • 2 to 2-1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 2-1/4 tsp packet Fleischmann's® RapidRise®? Yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of cloves

  • Combine ¾ cup flour, sugar, Fleischmann's® RapidRise® Yeast?, salt, cinnamon and cloves in a bowl and set aside. Combine milk, water and butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 15 second increments until the water is warm but not hot, about 120 to 130 degrees. The butter won’t be fully melted. Add finely chopped raisins and orange zest to the milk mixture and mix to combine. Add milk to flour mixture and beat using a mixer for 2 minutes on high. Add ¼ cup flour and beat on high speed, then add remaining flour to form dough, about 1 to 1 ¼ cup flour. Divide rolls into 12 equal pieces and roll into balls then place in a greased 8x8 square baking pan. Cover with a towel and allow to rise for 10 minutes. Place in an oven preheated to 375 degrees and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan and brush the top with melted butter. Serve warm.
