Honey-Butter Dinner Rolls

on May 16, 2013

About 8 months ago, I realized how easy and rewarding making bread can be. This is by far my favorite bread recipe because it is so versatile. I use this recipe for dinner rolls and for hot dog and hamburger buns.

– 1/2 cup warm water (105°F-115°F)
– 1 packet active dry yeast (2-1/4 tsp)
– 1 tsp granulated sugar
– 1/2 cup warm milk (105°F-115°F)
– 1/4 cup granulated sugar
– 1/3 cup butter, cut into cubes and softened
– 1 tsp salt
– 1 large egg
– 3-1/4 cups bread flour
– 2 Tbsp butter
– 2 Tbsp honey

Make the sponge: In a bowl or measuring cup, combine water, yeast, and 1 tsp sugar. Stir until dissolved. Set aside until doubled, about 15 minutes. Note that if it does not double in that time, the yeast is probably old.

Make the dough: In a bread machine, add milk, sugar, 1/3 cup butter, salt, and egg. Layer bread flour on top. Pour sponge over flour. Set machine to its dough setting and add flour/water as needed to reach a sticky ball texture.

Make the rolls: Shape the dough as desired. For dinner rolls, cut dough into 18 equal parts. Tuck each into a ball and place into 2-9″ round baking pans, greased or lined with parchment paper (see photo). Cover lightly with greased plastic wrap or a damp towel. Set in a warm place and let rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes – 1 hour. Preheat oven to 400°F.

Make the glaze: Melt butter and add honey. Stir until combined. Brush over the tops of the dinner rolls just before they are ready to be baked.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 18 dinner rolls.

    These look gorgeous! What do you do if you don’t have a bread machine? Will a stand mixer work with a kneading hook?

    • Yes, a kneading hook will work fine. Once the dough forms a ball, knead for about 7-8 minutes and then place in a greased bowl. Cover with greased plastic wrap or a damp towel and put in a warm place to rise for 1 hour. Then proceed to separating the dough.
