  • 200 ml of warm water
  • 200 ml of warm milk
  • 10 grams of active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 100 ml of sunflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 720 grams of wheat flour
  • Butter, for greasing the pan
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten (for the egg wash)


  1. Activate the Yeast: In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm water, warm milk, and sugar. Sprinkle the dry yeast over this mixture and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes, or until it becomes frothy. This step is crucial for activating the yeast, which helps the rolls rise and become fluffy.
  2. Prepare the Dough: Once the yeast mixture is frothy, stir in the sunflower oil and salt. Gradually add the wheat flour to the liquid ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms. You might need to adjust the flour quantity slightly to achieve the perfect dough consistency.
  3. Knead the Dough: Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it for about 10 minutes, or until it’s smooth and elastic. This kneading process is essential for developing the gluten, which gives the rolls their structure and soft texture.
  4. First Rise: Lightly grease a clean bowl with butter and place the dough inside. Cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and set it in a warm, draft-free spot to rise for about 1 hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  5. Shape the Rolls: After the dough has risen, punch it down gently to release any air bubbles. Divide the dough into equal portions and shape each portion into a ball. Arrange these dough balls on a butter-greased baking tray, leaving some space between each roll for expansion.
  6. Second Rise: Cover the shaped rolls with a kitchen towel and let them rise again in a warm place for about 30 minutes, or until they’re puffy and have nearly doubled in size.
  7. Preheat the Oven: While the rolls are rising, preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
  8. Apply Egg Wash: Just before baking, gently brush the tops of the rolls with the beaten egg. This will give them a beautiful golden-brown color and a shiny finish.
  9. Bake: Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  10. Serve: Let the rolls cool slightly on a wire rack before serving. Enjoy these soft, pillowy rolls warm, with butter, jam, or any spread of your choice.
