I’m teaching you how to make homemade dinner rolls. These are the best homemade dinner rolls I’ve ever had and it all starts with a straightforward 7 ingredient dough. I make these rolls whenever I get the chance and even brought a pan to our friends who just welcomed a baby. They’re pillow soft with the most delicious flaky and buttery texture. Everyone will demand you bake them on repeat.
5 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1pkt yeast (10g)
1 cup boiling water
1 cup lukewarm milk
1/2 cup oil
Mix the wet ingredients and add to the dry ingredients. Knead the dough for 7-8mins. Leave to rise double in size (about 1 hr).
Knead the dough. Make small balls (12-14) and then line a baking pan with baking paper or grease the pan with margarine/butter. Leave to rise for 15mins.
preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F and bake the rolls for 16-18 mins. Brush the rolls with butter/margarine when still hot.
