Soft Dinner Rolls

If you’ve been around All Things Mamma at all, you know that I like recipes that are:

  1. quick + easy
  2. taste amazing
  3. budget-friendly

And these super-soft dinner rolls fit the bill! While they are homemade, the ingredients are most likely already in your pantry and just require a little mixing and kneading (with a stand mixer if you have one!) and ready in under an hour.

Here’s how to Make Homemade 1-Hour Soft Dinner Rolls

Ingredients: 

(full measurements and directions below)

  • water + milk
  • butter
  • flour
  • salt
  • white sugar
  • instant yeast

How To Make Super Soft Dinner Rolls

1. Prepare

Combine the water, butter, and milk in a bowl.

Place mixture in the microwave or in a saucepan over medium heat and heat until the mixture reaches 95-115F. If it is hotter, allow it to cool slightly before proceeding with the recipe.

2. Add ingredients

Stir together 3 1/2 cups of the flour, salt, sugar, and instant yeast in a large bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer.

3. Stir

Add the warm liquid mixture and knead for 6-8 minutes until a soft ball forms and pulls cleanly away from the sides of the bowl. Add the additional 1 cup flour, as needed

4. Rest

Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap and a clean towel for 15 minutes.

5. Grease pan

Grease a 9” x 13” casserole dish and set it aside.

6. Divide

Punch down the dough and divide it into 12 equal-sized balls of dough.

7. Raise

Place the balls of dough in the greased casserole dish and re-cover with plastic wrap and towel for another 15 minutes.

8. Preheat & bake

Preheat your oven to 400F

Remove plastic wrap and towel from the casserole dish and place the dish in the oven for 15 minutes, until puffed and golden brown on top.

If brushing with butter, brush halfway through baking with 1 Tablespoon of melted butter and then again after baking.

FAQ

How do you know if yeast is active?

The easiest way to tell if your yeast is still good is to put a little bit into a bowl of warm water and see if it starts to bubble and foam. If it does, the yeast is active and good to go.

How do you know when rolls are done baking in the oven?

You need to keep an eye on the time that they’re baking and also pull them from the oven once the tops start to turn golden-brown.

How do you store leftover rolls?

Once they cool down, you can store them in a sealable bag or a container with a lid to keep them as fresh as possible.

  1. My family loves these rolls and I love how quick and easy they are to make.

    I brush on butter and sprinkle tops with sea salt for a nice little kick.

  2. Do you have a recipe for making these keto? I know it would need the sugar for the yeast, but what flours could I use? Thank you!
