Dinner Rolls in 30 Minutes
Summary: Hot, buttery yeast dinner rolls are nearly impossible to serve with a weeknight dinner… until now. How about light, fluffy rolls that you can have steaming hot and on the table in just about 30 minutes?
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water, comfortably warm, not hot
- 4 1/2 teaspoons of yeast
- 3/4 cup buttermilk, room temp
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/3 cup light vegetable oil ( I use peanut oil)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 4 – 4 1/2 cups flour
- 1/4 cup butter, melted (for brushing the rolls)
- Preheat the oven to 400F
- Add the sugar and yeast to the warm water and set aside for 10 minutes
- Cover the eggs with hot water from the tap to warm them until needed
- Warm the buttermilk so that it is just warm to the touch
- Beat the eggs slightly and add them to the yeast mixture with the buttermilk, salt, oil, and baking powder.
- Pour the whole mixture into a mixing bowl fitted with the dough hook.
- Add the 4 cups of flour and and mix for one minute
- Check to see if the dough is too sticky and add more flour if necessary.
- Mix for another minute.
- Turn the dough out and knead lightly just to pull it together.
- Cut it into 18 – 24 equal pieces and shape quickly into rolls.
- Brush them with melted butter.
- Arrange them on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.
- Let rise in a warm place for 10 minutes.
- Place in the preheated oven.
- Bake at 10 minutes, or until done.
- Brush with melted butter, again.
