This Dinner Rolls Recipe is a great option for any occasion, it will make your house smell like a bakery. This recipe will make about 22 small rolls.
– About 4 cups of bread flour
– 1 tablespoon of white sugar
– 1/4 teaspoon of salt (if you like the bread a little saltier add a little more salt)
– 250 ml of warm milk (might need more or less)
– 1 egg
– 2 tablespoons of cooking margarine (you can use butter or coconut oil)
– 2 teaspoons of rapid dry yeast (1 package, 7g)
– about 2 tablespoons of melted butter to brush rolls
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Add warm milk to your Kitchenaid Mixer bowl, the temperature has to be around 110-115F, or warm to the touch. Add sugar and yeast and give it a quick mix, cover the bowl with a kitchen towel and let it rest for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, you mix should be bubbly on top and foamy, if not, you need to check the expiration date of the yeast or the temperature of milk.
With the KitchenAid mixer hook attachment on, start your mixer on speed 2 and give it a quick mix. Add the egg, margarine and salt, and then start adding the bread flour, 1 cup at a time. The trick with the flour is, it will vary depending of temperature, humidity and altitude from where you live. What I do is I add flour 1 cup at a time until it forms a little ball and starts cleaning (not sticking) on bottom of bowl, then I turn off my mixer and I touch the dough, if it sticks to my finger, I add a little more flour until my finger comes out clean from touching the dough. Once you achieve the right consistency, let your KitchenAid Mixer work the dough for about 5-8 minutes.
Roll the dough into a rectangle. Then, cut it into 3 strips, then into little squares. Form little balls with your hands and set it aside.
Spray vegetable oil in a cake pan (I used two 10 inches cake pans), bottom and sides, then add the little rolls, leaving space in between (they will rise). Cover the pan and set it in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour.
Once rolls have doubled in size, preheat the oven to 350 F.
Once oven is at 350F, bake the rolls for about 15-20 minutes.
Once golden brown, take the pans off the oven, and brush the top of the warm rolls with melted butter.
Enjoy your dinner rolls!
