Buttermilk Dinner Rolls

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by John S.

This is a wonderful Dinner Roll recipe that we use for holidays and special occasions. Much better than store bought! I have copied it from a since not remembered cookbook and kept using it for years. We can't get through the holidays without it!

Top Review by Chef Tweaker

I chose this recipe because I had a suspicion that the bad experience of the previous reviewer was from user error or bad ingredients. I was right... I made these into rolls and even skipped most of the raising because I ran out of time. They still rose well in the oven and I used half the dough the next morning for cinnamon rolls. Yummy! Sorry I couldn't give 5 stars... see my ratings on my page. If half-stars were available hubby's vote was for 4.5 stars.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve yeast, honey and buttermilk by stirring together.
  2. Stir in melted butter.
  3. Mix in 2 cups flour, baking soda and salt. Beat well, cover. (Hint- put saran wrap directly over dough and then cover with towel.)
  4. Place near warm area such as heated oven and let rise 2 inches up the bowl. (Approximately 25 minutes.).
  5. Stir down, then add enough flour to make soft dough, attempting to get in the remaining 3 cups. Start by stirring the flour in, then try kneading as much of the remaining flour in as possible.
  6. Lightly oil a clean bowl and place dough into it. Cover, place in warm place and let rise until doubled. (Approximately 30 minutes.).
  7. Punch down.
  8. Divide into 24 pieces. Form into well-rounded smooth balls.
  9. Place 1 inch apart in oiled pan.
  10. Cover, place in warm place and let rise until doubled. (Approximately 30 minutes.).
  11. Bake for 20 minutes in pre-heated 400 degree oven.
  12. For softer, even better rolls, butter top of rolls after removing from oven.
