READY IN: 45mins


  • 1
    cup water, plus
  • 1
    tablespoon water (70-80 F)
  • 1
    large egg
  • 4 12
    teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 3 14
  • 14
    cup sugar
  • 1 12
    teaspoons salt
  • 2 14
    teaspoons instant yeast
  • 2
    tablespoons melted butter (for dinner rolls only) (optional)
  • 2
    tablespoons shortening (for dinner rolls only) (optional)


  • In bread machine pan, place all ingredients from flour through yeast in order as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Select the basic bread setting.
  • Check dough after 5 minutes of mixing, if needed add 1-2T of water or flour.
  • Bake as normal.
  • For dinner rolls.
  • Mix in bread machine but use only the dough option.
  • Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan (I always use a metal pan).
  • When dough is finished shape into 15 uniformly sized balls. I always grease my hands with shortening to smooth the dough out and it helps keep the dough from drying out.
  • Cover and let the rolls rise in a warm, draft free place until risen to the desired size.
  • I let them about double in size.
  • Bake in a 350° oven about 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
  • After removing from the oven, brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter.
  • Take out of pan and let completely cool before storing.
