Homemade Dinner Rolls

Homemade dinner roll is on the menu today, my kids love homemade bread or rolls. Two of my kids don’t eat store-bought bread, did I hear you say weird? Yes, I know it’s weird…lol but both of the kids won’t rest at the sight of homemade bread or rolls until they’re all gone. Rolls don’t require too many ingredients but require “strength” for kneading if you’re using hands. If you have a mixer, it will do the work for you except for shaping the dough.

Total Time
50 mins
  • 3 Cups All purpose flour or bread flour
  • 1 Cup whole milk (warm) about 110 degrees F
  • 7 Grams Active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 5 Tablespoons Unsalted butter, melted Plus extra
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar (add more or less)
  • 11/2 Teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Egg, beaten lightly
  1. Proof yeast: In a bowl, combine milk and yeast, sprinkle a little bit of sugar and set aside for about 10 minutes until foamy. 

  2. Stir in butter, salt, sugar, and egg in a bowl. If you're using a mixer, mix it on low, add flour gently.  Increase the mixer speed to medium and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. 

  3. Get a large bowl and use oil or butter to grease it. Put the dough into the bowl and cover, set it in a warm place and let it doubled, it will take about 2 hours.

  5. Cut the dough into small pieces (the size you want). Roll each piece into a ball-like shape, and place them into the baking pan, space them while putting them in the baking pan (because the rolls will rise again). Cover and set in a warm place for 1 hour and let them doubled in size.
