In my opinion there is hardly anything more satisfying than a freshly made dinner roll. These are so versatile. They can be used as hamburger buns, dinner rolls, or just served plain with spreads or toppings. They are delicious, not too hard, not too soft, not too sweet, not too salty, not too round, not too flat, in other words, absolutely perfect.Print
Perfect Rolls for Burgers and Dinner
- Yield: 12–18 rolls 1x
- 3 1/4 cup flour (1 cup whole wheat, 2 1/4 cups all-purpose)
- 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon yeast
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 2 tablespoons margarine (plant-based)
- 2 tablespoons all natural cane sugar
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
In a saucepan add all wet ingredients and gently heat until 110F (warm to touch). This happens quickly, so keep an eye on the pot while it heats.
Remove from heat.
Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture. Stir until well combined.
Cover with saran wrap and a kitchen towel and let sit for about 8 hours.
Turn dough unto a well floured kitchen counter or silicon mat.
Add just enough flour to form a nice soft dough.
Cover with saran wrap and a towel. Make sure dough is dusted with flour so the saran wrap does not stick to the dough.
Let rest for about 1 hour or so.
Divide the dough into 12-18 pieces depending on how large you would like the finished product. I recommend 18 pieces for mini rolls, and 12 pieces for regular size rolls.
Use just enough flour to make dough into rolls.
Cover again and let rise for 1 hour.
In the mean time heat oven to 425 F
Bake rolls for about 20 min.
These rolls freeze well.
Dear Chef Ani
I am 11 years old and I LOOOOOOOOVVVVVEEEEE to bake! I really love your recipes and videos! They have been a great blessing to me!
But I was wondering, why does the dough have to sit so long?
Thank you so much for writing me! It is so nice to hear from you!
That is a great question. We let the dough sit so that it will rise and make very fluffy rolls.
I love to bake too! It is my favorite:) Thank you so much for your comment.
