We serve these rolls with breakfast, but they would be fine as a dinner roll. You can adjust the size of the roll by the quantity that you make–the original recipe made 6 rolls, but the size that your are used to seeing at Grape Arbor, is one half that size. They are a little on the sweet side, as you can tell by the amount of sugar in the recipe, but certainly not a “sweet roll”.
We use potato flour here at the inn, but it may be easier for you to use potato flakes (aka instant potatoes). Give them time to rise, to ensure the light fluffy texture that makes them so good!
Where does the Moravian name come from? According to the original recipe, these rolls were made by members of the Moravian religious sect, which is centered in the Eastern part of Pennsylvania. They were made for “Love” feasts, which would be Easter or Christmas.
