My favorite roll recipe. Makes excellent dinner rolls, or can be used to make cinnamon rolls.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat milk to scalding in microwave.
  2. Stir in butter and sugar.
  3. Cool slightly and pour into bread maker.
  4. Make sure milk is cool enough, then add egg.
  5. Add 3/ 1/2 cups of flour, salt and yeast.
  6. Run dough cycle. Check consistency of dough-it should be slightly sticky, but form a ball in the pan. Add additional flour or milk as needed.
  7. When through with cycle, remove dough from pan, shape as desired and let rise until doubled.
  8. Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes.
  9. (Optional) Remove rolls from oven about 5 minutes before they are done.
  10. Brush melted butter over top, then return to oven until golden brown. This will give you a beautiful golden color on top of the rolls.

Great tasting dinner rolls. I used my KA mixer to knead & after the first rising formed half into love knots & half into butterhorns. After second rise I baked them 18 minutes but could have done 16 or 17. The butterhorns rose higher & started getting too brown on top. But other than that, they were great. Thanks for sharing Dragonfly AZ! Made, enjoyed & reviewed for US Regional Alphabet Tag - March 2008.

Excellent rolls ~ Tall, soft, and nicely sweet! I included about 30% whole wheat flour and kneaded the dough in my KitchenAid stand mixer. After a one hour rise I shaped the rolls, allowed them to rise until doubled, and then baked for seventeen minutes. I'm looking forward to making some great cinnamon rolls next time from this keeper recipe ~ Thanks for posting it!

This was the first time I have used just the dough cycle on my bread machine. The rolls were so light and tasty. Easy way to prepare the dough. Will make again. Thanks Dragonfly AZ. Bullwinkle.
