So just a quick post to put up some johnny-on-the-spot rolls. You might want to remove some of the sugar from these babies, they are just a bit too sweet for me, but very good, and as advertised, no rising time. They puff up just fine, due to the yeast and baking powder. By the time the oven is preheated, you are done making them.

1 1/4 cups warm water

1 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp= 3 tsp) yeast
1 Tbsp oil
3 C flour (can use white or wholemeal)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
Stir water, yeast, sugar and oil together. Leave for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy on top. Add flour, salt and baking powder. Mix well. Knead. Shape for use as rolls into 8 rolls. Paint with milk or butter. Bake at 400 degrees F for 13-15 minutes, preferably on a baking stone, but cookie sheet will be just dandy.MODIFICATIONS 6.29.2011**
FOR FLOUR, USE 16 OZ ALL PURPOSE AND 1 OZ VITAL WHEAT GLUTEN (adds chewiness and a big improvement in texture- it's what makes bread flour bread flour)
Sprinkle oregano and parmesan cheese before baking, after brushing with butter or milk.
