  • Yield: about 36 2-oz rolls


Light, fluffy dinner rolls, perfect for any occasion. 


  • 2 lb 10 oz Bread flour (or AP, if you don’t have bread flour)
  • 24 oz (3 cups) water, 60-65°F (16–18°C)
  • 1/2 oz (by weight) instant yeast
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 4 oz sugar
  • 2 oz dried milk
  • 4 oz softened butter

Ingredients for rolls


  • Combine all dry ingredients, including instant yeast, in the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment.
  • While on low speed, pour the water into the dry mixture.
  • Continue mixing on low speed for 4 minutes.
  • Stop the mixer and add the softened butter. Mix on low speed to combine. Dough will loosen and become sticky.
  • Mix on medium speed for about 4 minutes, or until the dough tightens up again and become elastic.
  • Transfer to bowl sprayed with cooking spray and ferment, covered, at room temperature for about 45 minutes, or until doubled bulk.
  • After fermenting, turn dough out onto a work surface and scale into 2 oz. portions (about 36 portions).
  • Round rolls and arrange on parchment-lined sheet pan. Lightly spray tops of rolls with cooking spray and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Proof rolls for about 30-45 minutes at room temperature to reach full proof.
  • For increased browning, gently brush with milk or egg wash (optional) before placing in oven.
  • Bake in a 365°F (185°C) oven for about 25 minutes to an internal temperature of 200–205°F (93–96°C)
  • Cool rolls and serve! If not serving immediately, wrap in plastic and store in the freezer.
