Dinner Rolls recipe

The dough for the homemade dinner rolls also makes excellent cinnamon rolls. The recipe is large enough to make 24 rolls and 20-24 cinnamon rolls, if you play your cards right.

My first try at making hops bread

Dinner rolls


3 cups warm water

2 tbsp + 1½ tsp yeast

1 tbsp sugar

¼ cup butter, melted

¼ cup milk

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1 tbsp + ¼ tsp salt

10 cups all-purpose flour

⅔ cup sugar

¼ cup shortening

Homemade bread in 60 minutes

Dinner rolls


Add yeast and sugar to warm water and let sit for 3-5 minutes.

Add melted butter (cooled), milk, eggs and salt to yeast mixture.

In a large bowl, combine flour and sugar. Stir until combined.

Using your hand, crumble shortening into flour until it is barely noticeable.

Pour liquid yeast mixture into flour mixture.

Using a large wooden spoon, stir until well combined.

When dough starts to come together, ditch the spoon and use your hand to knead the dough for approximately 2 minutes until it comes together in a nice ball.

Cover dough and place in a warm area until it doubles in size.

To double the dough faster, heat the oven to 195 degrees, turn the oven off and put the covered dough in it. This step cuts back on time dramatically. Dough will be doubled in 20-30 minutes.

After dough has doubled in size, punch it down and knead with your hands one more time for 2 minutes. If dough is a bit sticky, sprinkle with flour as needed.

Spray baking pans or sheets with cooking spray.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Form dough into 2-inch balls and place onto cookie/baking sheets or in 9×13 pans. If you want, pull apart rolls, place them close together in 9×13 pans. Otherwise, place them at least 1-2 inches apart on a cookie/baking sheet.

Next, cover and allow formed dough to rise until almost doubled again. Placing the pans on top of the oven while it is preheating will speed the process up, taking usually only 15-20 minutes to double in size.

Bake dinner rolls at 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes.

Serve and enjoy your homemade dinner rolls.
