One Hour Large And Fluffy Dinner Rolls

These rolls are the one of the easiest and tastiest breads you will ever eat! They’re so soft and fluffy, you wouldn’t believe that they were done in such a short time. 

The recipe itself is super easy and doesn’t need much preparation. The rolls come out super fluffy and decadent every time, just make sure to let them rise in a warm environment before baking to ensure that the yeast has had a chance to work.

I have made them multiple times and even made a batch sliced in half and filled with turkey and cheese to make pull apart sandwiches. Absolute perfection!

Once you make these rolls, you will find yourself making them again and again. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 3 1/2 – 4 1/4 cupsย  (420 – 520gms) all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup (50gms) granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast

  • 1 1/2 tsp salt

  • 3/4 cup (180mls) warm water

  • 2/3 cup (160mls) milk

  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter, diced into 1 tablespoon pieces, plus more for tops


  • Preheat oven to the lowest temperature. In a bowl, add 1/4 cup warm water with the yeast and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Rest for a few minutes until it starts to bubble. Add in the rest of the water, sugar, milk and butter.
  • Whisk the flour and salt together and add 1/2 cup flour into the liquids. Whisk it smooth. Add in the rest of the flour until a soft dough forms. Knead dough for about 10 minutes, adding more flour if needed. Dough should be lightly sticky but manageable. Cover dough with plastic wrap and rest 5 minutes.
  • Butter and flour a 9 x 13 inch tin. Drop dough onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into an evenly level square. Cut into 16 equal portions (don’t have to be exact). Shape dough into 15 balls, while using excess dough from the 16th portion to add to smaller rounds as needed, and place shaped dough portions into prepared baking dish.
  • Dampen hands with water and brush tops of dough with the water (just so they don’t dry while rising in oven).
  • Transfer to oven, close oven and turn oven off, allow rolls to rise 20 minutes (don’t open oven door). Remove from oven and preheat oven to 180 C (this should take about 5 minutes, so just allow rolls to rest on counter while oven preheats). Bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and run the top of a stick of butter along tops of rolls just to coat. Serve warm.

  4. yummy! Can you substitute the milk for anything?

    1. Hii ๐Ÿ™‚ I wouldn’t recommend substituting the milk with anything because that contributes to the overall fluffiness of the rolls. You probably can however use all water but I’ve never tried that so I can’t tell you exactly how they will turn out. Let me know if you try ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you so much for your sweet comment xx

      1. will do! ๐Ÿ™‚ tyโ™ซ
