Tender, fluffy, milky and buttery dinner rolls from scratch. Fluffy yeast rolls, make it for your next brunch or may be in Thanksgiving and I guarantee you the best Thanksgiving rolls ever.
These dinner rolls are simple to make with great results each time.
My kids devoured those rolls with some whipped honey cinnamon butter. Great to accompany any meal or as a snack by themselves. This is also great as a homemade buns recipe.
My hubby loves bread, I am not a big fan of the everyday loaf of bread. But for sure I eat bread and love anything bread-y ( which means carb loaded anything). Think donuts, cakes, bagels, cinnamon bread and garlic bread . Recently, bread rolls has been added to this list.
I’m kind of flatbread girl, after all I am a Mediterranean. I have a big list of bread– especially flatbread -recipes on the blog from all over the region but for bread rolls.. it was not my thing. I generally feel somehow intimidated by making bread rolls so this homemade bread rolls recipe was kind of a big deal for me. I’ve made it three times now and every single time I’ve had success.
I’ve always feared that after all this kneading, waiting, punching, and then rolling and waiting again that I will end up with flat, dense little rocks? But this was a winner!
Even if you are not a bread maker this is a great foolproof recipe that will not fail you. Even if you are a weird, no bread roll eater like me you’re gonna become one. No I assure you you’ll become obsessed with bread rolls. BUUUUt not just any bread rolls .
Sooooo let’s see it in action.
In a microwave safe bowl, combine flour and 1/2 cup of milk, whisk to combine. Microwave on high for 25 seconds then stir. Keep microwaving for 15 seconds and stirring until you get a bechamel or gelatin like mixture.
This step can be done in a saucepan over medium heat, just make sure not to overdo it and cook it to a complete hard bechamel we want a loose roux consistency.
Add butter, the remaining milk and stir. Then add eggs and mix well. Butter and milk should be COLD to lower the mixture temperature or else when you add the eggs, you will end up with cooked scrambled eggs swimming in bechamel like sauce :).
In you mixer bowl, combine all dry ingredients well.
Add wet ingredients and knead the heck out of it for a good 15 minutes until it is slightly sticky but not messy.
Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover and let it rise.
Convert the dough onto a clean surface, divide into 9 equal parts and shape into balls.
Arrange balls in your baking pan , cover and let the dough do its final rise for about 30 minutes.
Bake until top is golden brown and brush with some melted butter to add to its awesomeness :). Return to oven for a minute or two more.
Perfectly browned all around, fluffy and insanely delicious bread rolls. I could not wait to finish the shots, the smell was heavenly good. I highly recommend that you double or maybe triple the batch, as 9 is not enough… not even C L O S E.
