These yeast rolls are so soft and yummy. With the help of a bread machine, they’re a cinch to throw together! I find myself alternating between this recipe and my mother-in-law’s dinner rolls. Both are delicious, but this recipe uses more basic ingredients than the latter. A big shout out to Running Upward for sharing this recipe on her blog for all of us to enjoy!
Light and Fluffy Bread Machine Yeast Rolls
- 1/2 c. warm water
- 1/2 c. warm milk
- 1/3 c. melted butter, plus 4 Tbsp
- 1/3 c. sugar or Sucanat
- 1 egg
- 3 3/4 c. unbleached flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (= 1 packet)
Place the ingredients in a bread machine, starting with the liquids and ending with the flour and salt. Make a well in the flour and pour in the yeast. Turn the bread machine on to the dough setting, and allow it to do all of the kneading for you.
Grease a 9×13 casserole dish with coconut oil. Lightly flour a cutting board or surface. When the dough is finished, dump it onto the floured surface and turn to coat lightly with flour. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 15-20 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball, and place them seam-side down in the greased dish. Allow the dough to rise for about 45 min, or until they’ve doubled in size. The balls of dough should be touching each other.
While the rolls are rising, get the oven preheated to 375*. Melt 4 Tbsp butter in a small dish. Bake the rolls for 15-18 minutes, or until browned on top. Remove from oven and brush the tops of the rolls with the melted butter. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
We enjoy these yeast rolls with whipped honey butter. YUM. They’re also delicious alongside our favorite Herb Roasted Whole Chicken. Enjoy!
