One Hour Dinner Rolls


  • 1 cup water To activate your yeast you will need liquid.
  • 2 tbsp. butter Ensure that your butter is at room temperature before beginning the recipe.
  • ½ milk Milk enhances the flavor and texture profile of your bread.
  • 4 cup flour One of the most essential and base ingredients in every bread recipe.
  • 1 tsp. salt Salt imparts the delectable flavor that a dinner roll requires!
  • ¼ cup sugar Sugar helps in the raising of the yeast and tenderization of the dough.
  • 2 tbsp. yeast Instant/rapid yeast simplifies this recipe considerably.


  • Stir butter and milk into the water in a large microwave-safe bowl and heat until hot but not hotter than boiling. If it’s hotter, let it cool before continuing. Alternatively, you can perform this step over medium-high heat in a saucepan.
  • In a large bowl or the stand mixer bowl, whisk 3 ½ cups flour, salt, instant yeast, and sugar.
  • Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and knead for 6 to 8 minutes until the dough comes together into a soft ball and doesn’t stick to the sides of the bowl at all. If needed, add some additional flour.
  • Put the dough in a greased bowl. Cover the bowl with cling film or a clean kitchen towel for about 15 min. Grease a baking tray/dish (9 x 13-inch) and set it aside.
  • Punch the dough down and divide it into 12-15 equal-sized balls after 15 minutes. Arrange them in the prepared baking dish and cover them again with cling film and a towel for an additional 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 400F while you wait.
  • Remove the cling film or towel from the baking dish. Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until it’s puffed up and golden brown on top.
  • Brushing with melted butter is totally optional, but it should be done twice: once halfway through baking and once more after they’ve finished baking. Enjoy!


The leftovers can be stored at room temperature for up to a week if kept properly covered with plastic wrap.
