Sweet Dinner Rolls

Sweet Dinner Rolls


These are the best dinner rolls you will ever bake. They are ginormous and fluffy, the best dinner rolls ever. You will start by scalding the milk, in a heavy bottom saucepan, add in milk over medium heat and stir until it comes to a simmer then take it off the heat and continues to stir while it cools down. Add warm water in a jar together with yeast and sugar, give it a stir then let it sit for ten minutes until nice and bubbly. Once the yeast is activated, you will start the process immediately.


  • ½ Cup (125ml) Whole Milk
  • ¾ Cup (150 grams) Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 4 Tablespoons (56.8 grams) Butter, Melted
  • ½ Cup Water, Temperature of 115 Degrees
  • 2 Packages Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • About 4 Cups (480 grams) All-Purpose Flour
  • Additional Butter to Top


  1. In a small saucepan with a heavy bottom, scald milk by just bringing it to a boil while stirring constantly. Remove from heat once it starts to boil and continue to stir to slightly cool it down.
  2. In a small bowl, combine 2 teaspoons of the sugar, warm water (115 degrees), and yeast. Allow the yeast to proof about 5-10 minutes.
  3. In the bowl of a standing mixer add proofed yeast, remaining sugar, melted butter, salt, eggs, and the cooled milk. Mix until combined.
  4. Once combined, add flour in ½ cup increments mixing as you go.
  5. Keep adding flour until it becomes a ball and is elastic and slightly tacky. Continue kneading for about 5-8 minutes or until smooth.
  6. Place dough in an oiled bowl, cover, and allow to rise in a warm place until doubled in size. About 1 hour.
  7. Once doubled, punch the dough down to deflate it. Pinch off about 2 tablespoons of dough and form into a ball and place each roll onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper making sure to not crowd them to close together.
  8. Cover prepared rolls and allow to rise again for an additional hour.
  9. Place rolls into a preheated 375-degree oven and bakes for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  10. Brush tops with melted butter when they come out of the oven and enjoy
