EASY homemade dinner rolls from SCRATCH that taste AMAZING and are ready in 30 minutes!
Nothing is better than homemade bread, am I right?
As much as I love cooking dinner for my family, I’ve never been great at baking. I do fine with recipes where measurements aren’t important – a dash of this, a pinch of that – those are my jam. But baking? Those recipes have to be exact and I don’t do well with those. Which is why making homemade bread has always been SUPER intimidating for me. Actually, all recipes with yeast intimidate me. (Too many failed attempts over the years or something.) But a few years ago, my friend mentioned a “fail-proof dinner roll recipe” that was not only delicious, it was also easy and fast.”
I was hesitant, but intrigued, and so I gave it a try.
They are fantastic.
I love them, my husband and kids love them. Our Thanksgiving guests loved them. (Yep. I even served them at Thanksgiving!!) These rolls kind of remind me of a Hawaiian Roll – more dough-y than fluffy, and sort of sweet too!
This recipe has become my go-to roll recipe (ok, it’s my only roll recipe!) and I am here to say that if I can make these, you can too! You can make them every day and have a delicious-smelling home all.the.time.
And technically they take just over 30 minutes from start to finish with the rise and bake time (35 minutes, to be exact), but the result is a perfect homemade batch of dinner rolls that tastes just like you’d been slaving in the kitchen all day.
