Bread Machine Yeast Rolls

One thing I have never been able to master is the art of making yeast rolls. I love the soft buttery flavor of them and get so excited when I see them at a potluck because they are so good, but have never been able to manage making them for myself.

That's why when I found a recipe that makes the dough in my bread machine I was so excited to try it...

First time I made these wonderful rolls my husband ate 10 of them all by himself! I thought he would explode, but he just couldn't help it he said. I felt like Betty Crocker and was so proud of myself that I had to make a second batch for Sunday dinner with the family.

They are so light and have a great texture along with a wonderful buttery flavor and the whole house smells like grandma's while you are baking them - best of all they are so easy to make that you will be proud to serve them any time.


  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Warm Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/3 cup Butter or Margarine, Softened
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 cup All-Purpose Flour, (YES, I said ALL-PURPOSE - not bread machine flour)
  • 1 pkg Yeast, (2 1/4 tsp)
  • 1/4 cup Butter or Margarine


  1. Place all ingredients except the 1/4 cup butter into bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. This is usually wet, dry, and last yeast.
  2. Select the dough setting and start the machine.
  3. Once done, take dough out of machine and roll into 20 - 24 balls and place in a buttered baking dish.
  4. Melt the 1/4 cup butter and brush it over the tops of rolls, saving the excess for brushing on after baking.
  5. Cover with a dish towel and set aside in a warm place about 1 hour or until double in size.
  6. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Brush baked rolls with remaining butter.

Other Uses and Ideas:

This dough can be divided into two portions and each rolled into a 12-inch circle; spread each circle with softened butter, cut into 8 wedges and roll up starting with wide end, to make crescent rolls.

Use this dough for cinnamon rolls or sticky buns.

You can even make this dough and shape into hamburger or hot dog buns and bake as directed for great homemade buns.

Another idea, make this dough and then put into a bread pan for great homemade bread!

I hope you enjoy making homemade yeast rolls using this recipe!

Enjoy - And HAPPY EATING!!

      Just been having a go at bread making. As I have never cooked a thing in my life it was a new experience altogether. Enjoyed it very much. Great hub for newbie bakers.
