This can be made into bread or rolls, and is really only 60 minutes from the time you start mixing to the time they come out of the oven! My husband's family will not let me make anything but these for holiday get-togethers.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

If you've never made dinner rolls before and are intimidated, give this recipe a try. It's a very simple roll recipe made in a stand mixer. The dough only rises once so this is a time-saving recipe. Once baked, the roll is dense yet soft and fluffy. There's a slight sweetness to them.

NOTE: We used 2 cups of milk while making this recipe and it worked quite well. If your dough is still a little too sticky, slowly add additional flour. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1/4 c
    warm water
  • 2 Tbsp
    white sugar
  • 2 pkg
    yeast
  • 2 c
    milk
  • 1/2 c
    butter or oleo (1 stick)
  • 3
    eggs
  • 2/3 c
    white sugar
  • 2 tsp
    salt
  • 5-7 c
    white flour

How to Make 60 Minute Rolls

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix the yeast, 2 Tbsp sugar, and the warm water in a 2 cup glass measuring cup or small bowl. Set aside to proof (not only starts the yeast working, but you will know your water was not too hot or your yeast dead, as well).
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat the milk and the butter/oleo. DO NOT LET BOIL; you just want it warm.
  3. Beat the 3 eggs, 2/3 cup sugar, and the salt together with a mixer set on medium for about 2 minutes.
  4. Add the milk/oleo mixture and stir. Make sure this is not too hot or else you'll end up cooking the eggs.
  5. Add the yeast mixture and stir.
  6. Attach the dough hook to your mixer. Slowly add the flour and mix until a stiff dough forms.
  7. The dough will pull away from the side of the bowl. You may or may not need all the flour. Sometimes it takes more, sometimes less (no idea why). IF MIXING BY HAND, ADD FLOUR UNTIL A STIFF STICKY DOUGH FORMS. EMPTY BOWL ONTO A FLOURED SURFACE AND WORK/KNEAD IN FLOUR UNTIL A SMOOTH DOUGH FORMS.
  8. Grease whatever pan you will be baking in, be it a loaf pan or a 13X9 cake pan. Form your dough into either 2 loaves of bread or a bunch of rolls (depends on how big you make them) and set aside in a warm, draft-free place to rise. Cover with a damp dishtowel for more draft protection.
  9. When the rolls/bread has doubled in size, bake in a 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until the tops are brown.
  10. Bread is done when you thump the top with a knuckle and it sounds hollow.
