Butterhorn Bread Machine Rolls

"My daughter's number one favorite food I make are these soft, buttery rolls from "Bread Machine Magic." I have made these a million times and could do it in my sleep. The dough is a cinch to work with and they turn out exactly the same every time. Leftovers are great with jam. This bread dough makes a delicious kid-friendly pizza crust, too. Cooking time does not reflect the rising time. Recipe from "Bread Machine Magic.""

Ready In:
24 rolls


  • 34 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teasoon salt
  • 13 cup oil (can use shortening, too)
  • 13 cup sugar
  • 2 14 teaspoons yeast (or what your bread machine uses)
  • 1 12 tablespoons melted butter


  • Place all ingredients except melted butter in pan.
  • Select Dough Only setting and press start.
  • When dough has risen long enough, the machine will beep.
  • Remove dough from pan.
  • Divide dough into 3 equal balls.
  • Roll out each ball, one at a time, into a 9 inch circle (don't worry if you can't get it exactly 9 inch).
  • (Note: I always start rolling my dough and let it rest for awhile and resume rolling. The resting helps relax the dough).
  • With pizza cutter (works great!)or sharp knife, divide each circle into 8 wedges, as if cutting a pizza.
  • Starting at the wide end, roll up each wedge toward the point.
  • Cover and place in a warm oven (turn oven onto warm setting for 2 minutes and turn off, to make a good environment for dough).
  • Let rise for 30 to 40 minutes until doubled.
  • Remove sheet from oven to preheat oven!
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Brush rolls lightly with melted butter.

  1. These were FANTASTIC! I must admit that I made a few changes though. I added 2 tablespoons more milk. I originally started by using my machine recipe which called for 7/8 then I switched to this one. I also added less sugar, more like 1/4 for personal preference. Lastly, I used bread flour. I used olive oil for the oil bit. The dough came out perfect. Not too dry, not too wet.literally perfect. I added garlic to my butter topping and the kids gobbled them down. The were so fluffy and yummy. I just had to register to give this 5 stars. Best bread recipe I've tried to date.
  2. Best bread recipe EVER. With this recipe, my husband thinks I'm an awesome breadmaster! Actually thanks to my breadmaker and this recipe, I feel like the bread master! The only changes that I did was used bread flour and skim milk. I forgot to brush the tops with butter but it doesn't need it. Try it if you want a tender, soft, buttery roll. I made hot dog buns with half of the dough and the other half is sitting in the freezer.. Don't know if I'll make rolls or cinnamon rolls next...
  3. I agree these need 10 stars, I made them for Thanksgiving and I was sooo happy !!!! Thank You so much for sharing...I appreciate it.
  4. These deserve 10 stars. Everyone loves them. I am constantly printing the recipe for people.
  5. These rolls are delicious and easy to make. My family has made them several times. Thanks for posting such a great recipe!


Hi everybody, I’ve been using “Zaar” website for the last year but ready to commit myself to adding my two cents worth (including some photos). I live with my DH and two great kids and one crazy dog in the foothills of Colorado. We have a great view with lots deer and red rocks. I come from a food-loving family, including my nearby sister who is willing to discuss "what's for dinner" first thing in the morning! I’ve loved cooking every since I was a teenager. I don’t work so I have lots of time to cook my latest craving. I love to try and duplicate dishes I enjoy from restaurants. I have a lot of cookbooks, but now use mostly “Zaar” recipes and from “Cooks Illustrated.” I love reading cookbooks (library) and like the old classics from Betty Crocker to backs of food labels. I love to research lots of recipes before I decide which one to make.
