Basic Rolls

No recipe image available.A good basic recipe for homemade bread rolls.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon warm water
1 (0.25-ounce) packet active dry yeast, or 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 large egg
3 1/2 cups all-purpose or bread flour

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place sugar, butter and salt in a medium bowl. Scald milk (heat milk over low heat until small bubbles form around the edge of the pan; the temperature should read 180°F to 190°F | 85°C to 90°C). Pour milk over sugar mixture and stir to combine. Set aside to cool to lukewarm.
  2. Meanwhile, combine yeast in a small bowl with warm water (105°F to 115°F | 40°C to 45°C). Add egg and mix together slightly. Pour into the milk mixture and stir together.
  3. Add flour; stir until well mixed and soft dough forms. Cover dough with a plate or towel and set aside to rise until double in bulk, about 2 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a muffin pan; set aside.
  5. Punch down dough and knead briefly on a floured surface, adding more flour as needed to prevent sticking. Knead dough until springy and easily handled.
  6. To form cloverleaf rolls, divide dough into small pieces, shape into little balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Place 3 balls in each section of muffin pan.
  7. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.

Makes 12 rolls.
