My family loves rolls! Whose doesn’t?
But I often forget to prepare them ahead of time. No worries with this fantastic recipe for yeast rolls. It will leave you with big, soft, flavorful rolls in just 1 hour! Plus they taste just as good as the ones that take all day to prepare!
I’ve tried dozens of variations, but these Quick Yeast Rolls are easy to make, quick, and delicious!
Yeast RollsPreheat oven to 180 F (it’s that low because it is for helping the rolls to rise, not bake)
Start off my putting milk, water, and butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwaving 1 minutes and 22 seconds; set on counter to cool slightly.
Measure flour, sugar, yeast, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add warm milk to dry ingredients.
Combine ingredients and then mix with dough hook for 3-4 minutes on medium low. (your mixer is doing the work of kneading the dough)
Cover with plastic wrap to rest for 5 minutes. Meanwhile generously butter a 9x13 pan.
Put dough on lightly floured surface and roll into a square. Using a pizza cutter, make into 16 pieces by making 4 rows by 4 rows. (you actually only need 15 rolls, so take the smallest one and add it to other smaller rolls.)
Using wet hands, take each section and form into ball and place in prepared pan. (moist hands will help dough not to dry out)
Put rolls in buttered 9x13 pan. You will have 5 columns and 3 rows.
Put pan in 180 F oven to rise for 30 minutes. Turn oven off and DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR while they rise. Then pull them out and they will look like this.
Preheat oven to 375 F and put rolls back in the oven to cook for 12-15 minutes.
