Flour, yeast, butter and milk is all you need to create these soft and fluffy dinner rolls in less than half an hour! These foolproof 30 minute dinner rolls are so easy to make you’ll never go store-bought again!
I love fresh baked bread just as much as I love chocolate. Lucky for me, my family loves them too, giving me plenty of excuses to spend my day in the kitchen trying a new bread or chocolate recipe ignoring all the other house chores (folding laundry is highly overrated)
I’ve been making these dinner rolls for my family for years now and we just can’t get enough of, but I have to admit, I don’t always have hours to spend in the kitchen waiting for my dough to rise and to rise again. Actually, there are days I don’t have time to let the yeast proof for 10-15 minutes.
Lucky for me, and for you, with this foolproof recipe for dinner rolls, you can have steaming fresh baked dinner rolls in 30 minutes!!!
I’ve been playing around with Red Star® Platinum Superior Baking Yeast® for a while now and have been smitten by it from my very first try. Knowing that I don’t have to wait for the yeast to proof and helps speed up the rising process made my life so much easier lately.
This yeast is a miracle product I’m telling you! If you’re afraid of making yeast bread, give this product a try. You’ll be surprised what it can do!
In addition to the yeast, you’ll also need flour, milk, butter and a pinch of salt and another pinch of sugar. That’s all!
I love using milk in my yeast bread. Milk enriches the dough and produces a creamy-colored, tender crumb and golden crust. You can use whole milk, low-fat or fat-free as you wish. I prefer whole milk.
The pinch of sugar is added to help feed the yeast. Although not required in all bread recipes, it helps speed up the rising process.
Since I’ve been using Red Star® Platinum Superior Baking Yeast® in this recipe, there’s no need to mix the yeast with the lukewarm milk and wait for it to proof. As soon as you scatter the yeast over the milk, you can start making the dough, slowly adding the remaining milk. It should take no more than 3-5 minutes for the dough to make. In fact, I think the most time you spend shaping the rolls.
What I do is divide the dough into 12 balls and gently roll each portion of dough into a ball and place them on a baking sheet, in a 13X9″ baking pan or like I did this time, in an 11″ baking pan.
There’s a little thing I like to do when making dinner rolls. As soon as I take them out of the oven, I love brushing them with butter. It gives them that shiny look, plus who doesn’t love butter on their freshly baked dinner roll?
