TIPS FOR MAKING PERFECT HOMEMADE DINNER ROLLS

Measure out all the ingredients before you get started to avoid getting the recipe wrong.

Dough rising takes about 30 minutes. Keep your rolls in a warm place and cover with a tea towel or plastic wrap

Making the rolls the same size ensures an even baking time. You can use a kitchen scale to weigh them.

Check the rolls at 12 minutes. If they are starting to darken beyond what you prefer, put a piece of foil over the top. Always check a center roll for doneness and then tent with foil if they need a few more minutes.

Don’t forget to brush with butter! This is what gives the top of the dinner rolls that golden brown color.

Avoid over proofing your rolls. If they rise too much, you will exhaust the yeast and they can collapse.

 

 

FREQUENTLY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Can I Mix the Dough by Hand?

Mix the dough ingredients together in a large bowl using a wooden spoon or firm spatula. Once it comes together, knead with clean dry hands for about 12 minutes.

What should the dough feel like?

The dough should be slightly sticky, but still very soft. It should just barely not be sticking to the bowl. If you add too much flour and the dough stiffens, your rolls will also get a little stiff.

Can I use another kind of Yeast beside Instant dry Yeast?

Yes, all yeasts will work  perfectly. It’s just knowing how each kind of yeast works and differs. Instant dry yeast can be added straight to dry ingredients and doesn’t require any sitting or proofing.  Active dry yeast is a bigger size of granule and generally needs to be dissolved in a liquid before adding to a recipe.

Can I freeze these?

You can freeze these after you shape them into rolls. When ready to eat, remove them from the freezer and allow to thaw(rest) and rise until double in size before baking.

How do I know when I’ve added enough flour?

The dough should feel sticky and tacky to the touch, but should not stick to clean and dry fingertips. To knead by hand, press on the dough with the heel of your hand, moving in a forward rolling motion. Rotate your dough ball and repeat several times.

 

 

EQUIPMENT NEEDED TO MAKE HOMEMADE DINNER ROLLS

a baking pan

stand or hand mixer

digital thermometer(optional)

kitchen scale (optional)

 measuring cups and spoons

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

3 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon instant yeast

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup warm milk

5 teaspoon butter, softened

1 egg , room temperature

2 teaspoons melted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOMEMADE DINNER ROLLS

Combine the flour, yeast, sugar, salt in a bowl.

Mix together warm milk, vanilla essence, butter, and egg in the bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until well incorporated.

Combine the flour mixture to the milk mixture.  Turn the mixer on to the lowest speed and mix until flour is incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.

Add in flour bit by bit. Increase speed to medium and beat until a ball of dough is formed.

Add additional flour as necessary. The dough should be slightly sticky and soft and pulling away from the edge of the bowl.

Place the dough in lightly greased bowl and cover with a wet towel or plastic wrap. Let rise for 30 minutes at room temperature.

Remove the towel or plastic wrap and deflate the air from the dough by punching down lightly.

Pinch off pieces of the dough and rolls. You can weigh them to keep the rolls close to the same size. Knead the balls, gathering the edges of the dough toward the center to make a taut, round ball with a smooth top.

Transfer the rolls to a lightly greased quarter baking sheet or 9 x 13 baking dish. Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let rise for an additional 30 minutes at room temperature.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake the rolls for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

Remove rolls and brush hot rolls with the melted butter. Serve immediately or store cooled rolls in a plastic bag for up to 3 days.
