Quick Dinner Rolls in 30 Minutes
Hot, buttery yeast dinner rolls are nearly impossible to serve with a weeknight dinner... until now. How about light, fluffy rolls that you can have steaming hot and on the table in just about 30 minutes?
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water , comfortably warm, not hot
- 4 1/2 teaspoons yeast
- 3/4 cup buttermilk , room temp
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/3 cup light vegetable oil ( I use peanut oil)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs , room temperature
- 4 - 4 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup butter , melted (for brushing the rolls)
Preheat the oven to 400F
Add the sugar and yeast to the warm water and set aside for 10 minutes
Cover the eggs with hot water from the tap to warm them until needed
Warm the buttermilk so that it is just warm to the touch
Beat the eggs slightly and add them to the yeast mixture with the buttermilk, salt, oil, and baking powder.
Pour the whole mixture into a mixing bowl fitted with the dough hook.
Add the 4 cups of flour and and mix for one minute
Check to see if the dough is too sticky and add more flour if necessary.
Mix for another minute.
Turn the dough out and knead lightly just to pull it together.
Cut it into 18 - 24 equal pieces and shape quickly into rolls.
Brush them with melted butter.
Arrange them on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
Let rise in a warm place for 10 minutes.
Place in the preheated oven.
Bake at 10 minutes, or until done.
Brush with melted butter, again.
