Heavenly Yeast Rolls

A few years ago, my hubby bought me a bread machine for my birthday.

I was thrilled!  There’s nothing like the smell of bread baking in the oven.  There’s a satisfaction of being able to bake your own bread.  When I bite into a warm yeast roll fresh from the oven, there’s a certain sense of accomplishment.

I went on a search for the perfect yeast roll.  This recipe was the best and easiest and with a name like Heavenly Yeast Rolls, what could be better?!

Heavenly Yeast Rolls

1 cup milk
1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 cups bread flour
2 eggs
2 1/2 teaspoon rapid rise yeast

Place the  ingredients in your bread machine in order recommended by the instruction book and use the dough cycle.

Remove the dough from the machine and knead gently on lightly floured surface.

Divide and shape into 24 – 30 smooth round balls.  Place the rolls about 3/4 inch apart on a greased cookie sheet.  Cover with a cloth and allow to double in a warm place.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 18 minutes.  Brush them with butter after baking to keep the tops soft.

*You can also substitute 1 cup of wheat flour for one cup of the bread flour for wheat rolls.

Optional: Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese before baking (see first picture.)

Serve with butter and jam.

  3. The rolls look heavenly and I bet they taste delicious! I do have a question. You say to roll the dough into small balls and let rise, but the picture on the baking sheet looks like the dough was rolled out and cut with a pizza cutter? Is that how you “divide” the dough, or did you let the dough rise like that? Sorry, just wondering??

    Please e-mail me at robbing@brydonlaw.com. Thanks!

    • I responded by email but will answer here as well. That’s how I divided the dough. Sorry to be so confusing. I was trying to take pics of the steps but missed one where they were in the pan rising. Sorry. You can take the squares and roll into a ball or fold like Parker House Rolls and put into or on your pan to rise. I thought that was a neat way to divide the dough, so I tried it that way instead of pinching the dough off or spooning, etc.
