Sweet Buttery Rolls

Ashley Lemon


I can’t seem to get enough of these sweet buttery rolls. The rolls turned out about the size of a softball, or grapefruit. The crust is very soft, and light. These are amazing with honey butter or just honey. These defiantly put frozen rolls to shame, which is not a easy thing to do. I used half of the batch I made for a bread pudding recipe. It was great the sweetness of the rolls really comes through. Enjoy.

How to Make Sweet Buttery Rolls


  • 1Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar; let stand for 10 min.
  • 2Combine yeast mixture, milk, 1/2 cup sugar and enough flour to make runny batter.
  • 3Add the melted butter, eggs and salt to the runny batter and mix well.
  • 4Add the runny flour mix to the bread machine and select dough cycle.
  • 5After the first kneading cycle is done, add the rest of the flour to make a stiff dough
  • 6Once the dough cycle is complete, punch down and pinch off balls about the size of a golf ball.
  • 7Cover, and let the individual rolls rise for 10 – 15 min or until doubled
  • 8Place on a greased baking sheet, and bake at 350 F for 10 – 15 min. The rolls will be very light in color, so you may think they need more time. Don’t do this! The rolls burn very easily on the bottom. Enjoy!
