  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Place bread flour, water, sugar, egg, 2 tablespoons softened butter, yeast, and salt into the pan of your bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select the Dough cycle and press Start. When the cycle is complete, remove the dough and press down to deflate.
  3. Divide dough into 15 equal pieces and form into rolls. Place rolls in prepared baking dish, brush with melted butter, and cover dish loosely with plastic wrap; let rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  5. Bake rolls in the preheated oven until the tops are golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Made these last night. Used the breadmaker dough setting. The dough was very wet and sticky, had to add a lot more bread flour to keep from sticking to the sides. Once I punched it down and r...

I'll be making these again, they are so light and tender. I made this into 24 rolls in a 9"x 13" pan. They came out about the size of King's Hawaiian rolls, only a bit taller. I added a teaspoon...

I made these exactly as the recipe is written for Thanksgiving. They turned out really well. I didn't know exactly how to shape rolls, so I divided the recipe into 16 fairly rough balls (using ...

Seriously easy and fast! They came out perfectly. :) I never use my bread machine because it has never turned out a single decent loaf of bread. I wanted some rolls in a hurry and it wasn't ...
