Classic recipe for soft buttery Dinner Rolls
I was craving bread the other day…thoughts were running through my head about how its been soooo long since I’ve had homemade bread. I was craving, almost drooling thinking about how a warm buttery piece of bread or a hot dinner roll with butter slathered all over it sounded so good. I’m happy to say I finally got my fix last night. I decided to make some good old fashioned dinner rolls to go with my meal. And you can bet that I ate 3 with my dinner and 2 more today as I’m writing up this blog post. :)
You can mix this bread by hand, use a mixer with a dough hook or a bread machine. You basically just need to make sure the dough gets kneaded for about 5-10 minutes & that its not too dry & not too wet. You want it to form a nice round ball that’s not too sticky. This recipe will make a 9×13″ pan of rolls which should produce about 18 rolls depending on what size you make them.
Dinner rolls are definitely best served warm & fresh from the oven but they also taste pretty dang good the next day if you warm them up in the microwave.
- 2 teaspoons (1 packet) dry active yeast
- ¼ cup warm water
- 1 cup warm milk
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened (I used salted)
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 4-4½ cups all purpose flour
- Add yeast to bowl. Add in warm water. Heat milk in microwave for about 30 seconds to warm it up, add to yeast.
- Add softened butter (you can warm it in the microwave for a few sec. if its cold).
- Add remaining ingredients: sugar, salt, egg, & start with 1 cup of flour. Stir ingredients together. Add in remaining cups of flour one at a time, kneading dough until dough forms a soft ball that is no longer sticky. (I'd start with 4 cups of flour & add up to ½ cup more if the doughs too sticky)
- Place in a greased a bowl and let rise until doubled in size. About 45 minutes to an hour.
- Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface. Divide in half and then roll into a “log”. Cut into portions for shaping. (I divided into 18 rolls)
- Shape dough into balls. Place on greased baking sheets or greased pan. I used a 9x13" pan.
- Let rise until doubled in size.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 15-20 minutes or until they are turning a light golden brown on top. Brush with melted butter if desired.
