Homemade Dinner rolls

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 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.
