Homemade Dinner Rolls Recipe
Prep Time: 3 Hours
1 1/4 cups warm Water
1 packet (1/4 oz) Rapid-Rise Yeast
2 tablespoons Sugar
1/4 cup Vegetable or Olive Oil
2 teaspoons Salt
3 1/2 – 4 cups Bread Flour
Melted butter for brushing, optional
In a small bowl, whisk together water, yeast and sugar. Allow to sit at room temperature 10 minutes or so until the mixture begins to foam.
In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, oil and water mixture. Mix until a loose ball forms, adding more flour by the tablespoon if the mixture is too wet.
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 7-10 minutes, until dough is smooth, elastic and passes the window pane test.
Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with oiled plastic wrap. Leave in a warmer place in your home (maybe near a stove or sunny window) to rise until doubled in size – about 1 1/2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350F and grease an 8×8 baking pan. Punch down dough to deflate. Divide dough into 9 portions and into
smooth rounds; place side by side in prepared pan. Let rise a second time, 30-45 minutes, before baking.
Bake rolls for about 15-25 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter while warm, if desired. Serve in bread bowl!
