Servings: 12


For Rolls:

  • 1/2 cup plus 5 tablespoons (180 grams) milk warm
  • 2 teaspoons (6 grams) active dry yeast
  • 2 1/2 cups (300 grams) bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon (12 grams) granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (60 grams) butter softened
  • 1/2 tablespoon (6 grams) salt
  • melted butter for brushing


For Rolls:

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the hook attachment add the warm milk and active dry yeast. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  • In the bowl with the milk and yeast add the flour, sugar, and softened butter. Mix on low speed until the ingredients are combined.
  • Add the salt and turn the mixer to medium-low speed for 6 minutes.
  • Spray a medium bowl with non-stick spray and place dough in the bowl. Cover with a clean towel and let sit in a warm place for 1 hour.
  • When the dough has doubled in size remove it from the bowl and divide it into 40-gram pieces. If you do not have a scale just make them as close in size as possible. They should be a little bigger than a golf ball.
  • Roll the dough into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Cover the baking sheet with a clean towel and let sit in a warm place for 40 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees (F). Lightly brush each dough ball with melted butter.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown.
