Super Soft White Dinner Rolls

I really love fresh warm bread. We were making all of our own for a while, but I bread maker is no longer working, so I haven’t been baking very much. I thought I would make a loaf of white bread for sandwiches today, but we still have a lot of bread from the store and I don’t want to waste that. I thought that instead, I would make nice soft white pull apart rolls.

These made the kitchen smell so nice and I got to eat them straight out of the oven with just a little bit of peanut butter for lunch. So Yummy!

Baking your own bread always takes a bit of time because dough needs to prove, but it is so worth it. The nice thing with this recipe is it doesn’t require a lot of work to make a really nice result. I got this recipe from a blog here and I definitely will be checking out some of the other bread recipes there.

  • 2 Tbs granulated sugar

  2. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, egg, sunflower oil, sugar, and salt and whisk together.
  3. Add the liquid mixture to the stand mixer and combine with the yeast.
  4. Add the flour and beat with dough hook on low for 10 minutes. The dough should be only slightly sticky, smooth and soft.
  5. Cover the mixing bowl and let dough prove for about one hour in a warm area until it has doubled.
  6. Line a baking tray that is roughly 8″ x 10″ with a sheet of baking paper that comes over the edges on two sides.
  7. Place dough on a lightly floured work surface and divide into 12 equal parts (mine were not totally equal).
  8. Take each piece of dough and fold the edges into the bottom to cream a nice smooth domed top, then roll between your hands to make a nice round ball.
  9. Place the balls in the baking tray in 3 x 4 layout.
  10. Let dough rise again for 40 minutes until the balls are touching each other.
  11. Preheat the oven to 190 C.
  12. Melt the butter and brush over the tops of the buns.
  13. Bake the rolls for about 18-20 minutes, until light brown on the tops.  dsc_0234
  14. Remove from the oven and use the baking paper to lift the rolls out and place on a wire rack to cool.

Now you can pull them apart and enjoy!
