Bread Rolls

"I've tried many, many bread recipes, and this is the best roll recipe I've come across. It's super fast, super easy, and you'd have to try hard to mess it up. The easiest way to get the perfect temperature water for your yeast is to do 1 part boiling water to 2 parts cold. Perfect every time!"

Ready In:
16 rolls




  • In a small bowl, mix milk with water. Add sugar, yeast, and butter. Stir until yeast is dissolved and set aside for 10 minutes or until yeast has foamed up a bit.
  • In a large bowl, mix flour and salt. Use the lower amount of flour to start with and add more only if the dough is really too sticky.
  • Add yeast mixture to flour and mix.
  • Knead until smooth and elastic. (I use a hand mixer with a kneading attachment.).
  • Place in greased bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.
  • Oil your hands and shape the dough into rolls and place in a well-greased pan. I use 2 round non-stick cake pans.
  • Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise another 15 minutes.
  • Bake at 400 for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Let these cool down before you remove them from the pan or they will likely tear.

    Can you use melted Crisco instead of butter and get the same results?

    My bread becomes dense and shrinks in size after some time. What can I do?

    Amazing bread rolls! Easiest recipe ever and they were gone in seconds. Tip - when you do the second rise they come up quite big so start off small :)

    I used this recipe to make hamburger rolls. Not only was it DELICIOUS, but it was also the easiest bread recipe I've ever made! Thank you!!

    Question Please what is the spoon size measure for 1/4 ounce of yeast. Do I need to melt the butter first

    My family loved these rolls so much, I've been forbidden from trying to make any other recipe. One question though, is the butter melted and then cooled to room temperature or just put in solid at room temperature. I did the latter and clearly, the results were fine but it was harder to mix in the flour and be sure it was distributed evenly.

    Soooo we didn’t have milk. And I used heavy cream instead. Same. 1 cup. Took 30 mins to bake. And they came out thick. So rich and tasty. Very nice recipe. Even when you don’t have milk. :)
