Kneading and first rising is done in the bread machine. These rolls are tasty, and are very lowfat and low calorie! Prep time includes rising time.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 9.85 ml yeast
  • 709.77 ml bread flour
  • 7.39 ml salt
  • 177.44 ml buttermilk (I use the dried kind of buttermilk and reconstitute it with water to equal 3/4 cups, reduces fat to)
  • 14.78 ml butter
  • 44.37 ml honey
  • 118.29 ml water
  • 2 egg whites


  1. Put all ingredients except egg whites in loaf pan and use dough cycle.
  2. At the end (on most bread machines the cycle ends after the first rise), remove the dough onto a lightly floured surface.
  3. Separate into 16 equal parts, and form into balls.
  4. Place on a cookie sheet, and cover loosely with saran wrap.
  5. (I usually warm the oven to about 100 degrees, and put it in there for the second rising) Let rise for 20-30 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  6. Remove saran wrap (and remove from oven at this point, if using my technique) and preheat oven to 375.
  7. Brush the rolls with the egg whites and bake until browned (approx 25 minutes).

This was a 5-star recipe for me even though I made several mistakes due to unclear directions and errors on my part. 1.because I didn't read the directions completely, I added 2 egg whites to the batter--however the rolls still were delicious. 2. a word of caution: be sure to grease the cookie sheet to make it easier to get the rolls off the pan. 3. A cooking time is not indicated in the directions, but mine were done in 25 minutes.

Wow! These are wonderful! They are soft, light, delicious rolls! Made a few minor changes, subbed in 1 cup of whole wheat flour, used 1/4 tsp extra yeast, added 1/2 c. extra flour, and didn't use the egg whites. I used the dry buttermilk as you suggested and the were done in 20 minutes. I second everyone's comment that the dough is very sticky. I made 11 larger rolls and baked them on parchment paper after reading ellie_'s review. Thank you so much!!

I made these using regular liquid buttermilk and omitted the egg white wash. The dough was runny and sticky so I added some more flour as it was mixing; perhaps that is why they turned out a bit on the chewy side. My coworkers liked them and they all disappeared. Thanks for sharing.
