Dinner rolls are a fun addition to the dinner table. I don’t know about you, but I look forward to a soft, buttery, mound of bread to accompany the food on my plate; it’s like that one must have accessory that goes with everything. Bread making, much like baking in general, has always been something I’ve steered away from; mostly because I didn’t want to fail at it. But I’m at a stage in my life, where I absolutely LOVE the trial and error aspects of baking. I’m learning that each “failure” turns into something truly magical, especially after the second, third, fourth and even fifth attempt at it. Today was my day to try something new. And now, I can take bread making off my bucket list. The recipe below is one that I modified to suit the taste buds in my home.


4 c. flour

1 tbsp yeast

1 tbsp white sugar

1 tbsp light brown sugar (optional)

1 tsp salt

2 c lukewarm water (might not use all)

1/2 stick butter cubed


In a bowl, add the flour, salt, yeast, and sugars. Add the butter, using your hands to combine with other ingredients until mixture resembles powder.

Next add the water incrementally to form the dough. Knead for approximately 10 minutes (I stopped after 8 LOL).

Cover with saran wrap and set aside for 45 minutes, then knead again and form the rolls. Place onto a deep baking pan, lightly brushing with melted butter, then place in the oven for 25 mins.

Brush on more butter and return to the oven for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven. Let cool and transfer to a wire rack.

Serve warm and ENJOY!
