Dinner rolls recipe

Hi Brownysss,
Normally I only put pastry recipes on my blog like cake, cupcakes, cookies etc…. But I also make bread and other brownylicious things like cinnamon rolls, scones etc…. I received a lot of e-mails asking me, to put also these recipes on my blog. From now on I’m going to published more than only pastry recipes. I also want to put pastry recipes from my own culture. From my “Dushi Island Curacao”

So my first out of the box recipe is “Dinner rolls” recipe. We eat bread everyday so lets bake bread!!!!


  • 1 packet of dry yeast
  • ¼ cup of warm water
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 3 tbsp of butter
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 cup of flour


Yeast mixture
Disolve the packet of dry yeast with the 1/4 cup of warm (Not hot water). Let the yeast disolved till it get a little bit thicker.
While the yeast is dissolving, we’re going to get 1 cup of milk, and 3 tbsp of butter and throw it in the microwave for a minute to warm the milk.
When the yeast is disolved we ad the following into the yeast mixture:
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of flour

Add the warm milk/butter mixture(let it cool before adding, otherwise you will kill the yeast).  Add another cup of flour to the mixture. Switch to a spatula and add a third cup of flour. Adding the third cup of flour will transform the mixture to a wet, sticky dough. But it should be dry enough to scrap out on to a cutting board.
Knead the Dinner Roll Dough
On a floured board knead the dough for about 6-7 minutes. You are only going to add flour in when the dough gets too sticky to knead. So make sure your hands are floured.
Knead the dough until you have a smooth and elastic, but still soft and slightly sticky dough. Don’t work too much flour into the dough, only add it if it gets to sticky to work with. Form the dough into a nice smooth ball.
In a mixing bowl, add a 1/2 tsp of vegetable oil and put the dough into the bowl.
Cover the bowl with a towel and let it rise, in a warn spot, until double in size. Should take about an hour to an hour and a half.

Form the Dinner Rolls
After a hour and  a half, put the dough on a lightly floured cutting board. Form the dough into a square shape. Then take a knife and cut it into 12 pieces. Take a piece of dough and roll it into a round shape in your palm.

Put the dinner rolls on a baking pan,  about 1 1/2″ apart. Let the rolls rise and double in size, which will take about 30-45 minutes. The rolls has to sort of touching each other and that’s what going to give them that great dinner roll shape.

Bake the Dinner Rolls
Bake the dinner rolls in a preheat oven  at 350 degrees F. (or 175 degrees C.) for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.  Take then out off the oven and let them cool down for about 10 minutes.

Voila your dinner rolls are ready!!!
