2 cups of hot milk

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup mashed potatoes

3 (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast

1/4 cup lukewarm water, 105 to 115 degrees

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

2 teaspoons of baking powder

2 teaspoons of salt

6 cups all-purpose flour

2. In a little bowl, melt yeast in hot water. join to ingredients in bowl.

3. Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt onto a piece of waxed paper or baking paper.

5. Once everything is well mixed, cover the container with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise to room temperature for 1 to 2 hours (if you want to bake that day) or let the dough rise overnight in the refrigerator. Since this dough produces enough for about 3 dozen rolls, slice 1/3 of the dough to reach room temperature and put the rest in the fridge .

6. Once the dough has doubled in size, shape balls slightly larger than a golf ball and place them in a greased cake pan. Let rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes to 1 hour.

7. Bake 365 C until golden brown, about 16 to 19 minutes.
