Foodie Friday {30 Minute Yeast Rolls}

I am a HUGE bread fan…it’s one of my absolute favorite foods ever. I could probably live on bread & butter. So when I found these rolls on Your Home Based Mom’s blog I was in shock and disbelief. I mean, yeast rolls in 30 minutes?!?! No way!

In reality it probably takes closer to 45 minutes from start to finish to make these rolls, but it’s totally worth it {and most of that time is allowing the rolls to rest, anyway}. I love the homemade fresh flavor of these rolls – they are so dense and doughy; and the best part is that because this recipe makes 12 large rolls, there are always left-overs! I make sure to save a few for breakfast…they’re so delicious when heated in the microwave, covered in butter & drizzled with honey. Mmm.

I know, I know, by this time you’re just begging to make these rolls instead of reading about how delectable they are…well get going!


1 C. + 2 Tbsp. Warm Water
1/3 C. Vegetable or Canola Oil
2 Tbsp. Active Dry Yeast
1/4 C. Sugar
1  1/2 tsp. Salt
1 Egg
3 1/2 C. Bread Flour {all-purpose works, but bread is better}

Heat your oven to 400 degrees.

Add water, oil, yeast, and sugar to your mixer bowl and let sit for 15 minutes.

With your KitchenAid dough hook, mix in the salt, egg, and flour. Mix with your hook until the ingredients are well-incorporated and the dough is soft and smooth. This process only takes a few minutes, and I always know it’s ready because the dough will cling to the hook in one large ball.

Split the dough into 12 uniform rolls and place in a greased 9×13 pan. Allow the rolls to rest for 10 minutes. I find it’s best to let them sit over the warming oven.

Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

The first time I served these rolls was last Thanksgiving and they were a huge hit with the family. My father-in-law couldn’t believe that I made yeast rolls from scratch and that they tasted so wonderful. Talk about a compliment! And how great is it that whenever the husband requests these rolls I can make them for dinner with no hassle? These are definitely a family favorite, and I plan on serving them every holiday!

    I just made these and they turned out so nicely!! My husband is vegan, so I used a flax egg instead of real egg (1 tablespoon flax+ 3 tablespoons boiling water, whisked until gelatinous). Worked perfectly! Thank you so much.
