Looking for the best, quick and easy dinner rolls? These are light, fluffy and ready in 90 minutes. Also, a great recipe for the beginner baker wanting to learn to make homemade rolls for scratch!
- 1 1/2 cups Warm Water
- 3 Tbs . Sugar
- 1 Tbs . Active Dry Yeast
- 4 Tbs . room temperature Butter
- 1 1/2 tsp Salt
- 3-4 cups All Purpose Flour
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water.
- Let stand 5 minutes to get foamy.
- Mix in the butter, salt, and 3 cups of the flour with a dough hook.
- Once well combined, add the last cup of flour 1/4 cup at a time until the dough forms a ball, pulls away from the sides of the bowl and is only slightly sticky to the touch. YOU MAY NOT NEED THE ENTIRE LAST CUP OF FLOUR.
- Knead for 3 minutes at medium speed.
- Cover the bowl with a dish cloth and allow dough to rise until doubled. This will take about 20 to 30 minutes.
- Gently punch down the dough and divide into 15 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and place in a 9x13 baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
- Cover and let rise until doubled on top of your stove while your oven preheats to 350 degrees.
- Bake rolls at 350 degrees, for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
- Run a small cube of butter over the tops of the hot rolls. Let cool slightly before serving.
Butter - Both salted or unsalted work fine.
Flour - all purpose flour not bread flour and never self rising flour. If you want to sub some wheat flour see my Wheat Dinner Roll recipe for details!
Eggs - yes, you are reading this recipe correctly. There are no eggs in this recipe. It's a common misconception that bread recipes must have eggs as a binding agent.
