Yeast Dinner Rolls

Hi, come on in, I am in the kitchen. Yes that's right you smell bread cooking. Several people have asked me if I would post the Yeast Dinner Roll recipe that is on my Thanksgiving menu and other menu's from time to time. There might be some of my guest that would be unable to eat this type of bread and I will have another Gluten Free bread for them. I would use a recipe for Gluten-Free Whole Grain Sandwich Bread from Amy at Simply Sugar and Gluten Free. I would use the recipe and make it into dinner rolls rather than the loaf. This is the link if you would like that recipe:Gluten-Free Whole Grain Sandwich Bread

Yeast Dinner Rolls
Miz Helen's Kitchen
4 cups sifted Bread Flour Whole Wheat or White
1/2 cup Dry Powdered Milk
1 package Yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup Warm Water, 120 degrees
1/4 cup Salad Oil
1 Egg at room temperature
2 teaspoons salt
  • In a warmed mixing bowl combine 1/2 cup Dry Powdered Milk, 1/4 cup Sugar, 1 package Yeast, 2 cups sifted Bread Flour.
  • Add 1 1/4 cup warm Water at 120 degrees, 1/4 cup Salad Oil, 1 Egg at room temperature, and 2 teaspoons salt. Beat for 2 minutes.
  • Add the remainder of the Bread Flour mix well. With lightly floured hands knead 5 minutes.
  • Place the dough in a bowl and slightly oil (with extra virgin olive oil) the top of the dough. Place in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size about 45 minutes.
  • Punch the dough down and knead for 1 minute.
  • Shape into balls the size of a large egg and place into oiled muffin pans. Let rise until double in size.
  • Bake 350 degrees for 13 minutes remove from oven and brush the tops with butter. Enjoy!

I was trying to remember how long I had been using this recipe and to the best of my knowledge it has been about 40 years. I sure hope you enjoy these wonderful Yeast Rolls and have as much fun making them as I did.  Now you  come back to see me...and don't forget your basket of rolls.
Peace and Joy
Miz Helen

  1. Those are gorgeous rolls. I can just taste them, the aroma of fresh baked bread is like no other. for a short while I had to eat gluten free. During that time I found Better Batter a company that makes gluten free flour. It is a cup for cup flour that you can use in all your recipes. She has a huge archive full of recipes and her test kitchen will convert recipes for you if you have difficulty. It make delicious bread and her site has 100's of recipes. when I was able to eat gluten again the first thing I did was bake some bread I love the process of baking bread and it soothes my soul to feel it beneath my hands. Enjoy your bread making and let the Lord feed your soul.

  14. Wow! Those rolls look so good! Even before they are baked I just wanted to take a big ol' bite. How did you get them to rise so perfectly??

  15. Jackie,
    To answer your question: How did you get them to rise so perfectly? Make sure that your yeast is fresh and not old. Make sure that you set them in a very warm place to rise and cover them with a loose cloth giving them room to rise. If you had been at my house, you would have had to keep your boys from sticking their fingers in the dough and watching it go, what memories.


Your visit has been very special. I look forward to your comments, they are like opening little gifts. Thank you for stopping by and hurry back!
