Gourmet Taste, Meager Budget. Quick and Simple Bread Roll Recipe You Can Make at Home in an Hour.

Updated on July 19, 2012

Budgets are tight these days and people just don't have the money they used to for the little extras. Just because you're trying to save money, though, doesn't mean you no longer have gourmet tastes. When I decided to stay home and be a full-time mom, I had to do some serious budgeting. I was used to eating great food in fabulous restaurants but I learned that, if I wanted to make the new situation work, I would have to learn to cook and bake. That was quite some time ago. Now, I'm able to make many different kinds of great tasting meals that don't break the bank.

Baking my own bread is one way to cut costs and, honestly, it's easy and fun. I used to utilize a bread machine to make the dough before I baked it in the oven but it's really not necessary. Most of the time spent making bread is waiting for it to rise so, nowadays, I simply mix it in my Kitchenaid stand mixer and then go find something else to do while the dough rises. Yesterday afternoon, about 5:00, I was making dinner. I decided to make this quick and easy recipe for Buttery One Hour Yeast Rolls that I found in The Country Innkeepers' Cookbook by Wilf & Lois Copping. They turned out great. Buttery and tender, these rolls were done within the hour, with very little effort, and were a big hit with my entire family. And the best part? The entire meal was on the table by 6 pm and only cost a few pennies to make.

5 stars from 1 rating of Buttery One Hour Yeast Rolls

Cook Time

Prep time: 50 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: About 3 dozen rolls depending on the size you make


  • 2 Packages Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/4 Cup Water, lukewarm
  • 1 1/4 Cups Milk
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Use Real Butter
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 4 cups All-Purpose Flour, Sifted (But I never sift.)


  1. Dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Place the milk, sugar, butter and salt in a pan. Heat until lukewarm.
  3. Add milk mixture and 4 cups of flour to the yeast in the large mixing bowl and mix well.
  4. Place in a greased bowl and brush the top with melted butter. Let rise for 15 minutes. The dough will be a little gooey. Don't be tempted to add more flour.
  5. After 15 minutes, turn out the dough onto a floured board. Pat it until it's about 3/4 inch thick.
  6. Cut into rounds with a floured buscuit cutter. Fold the rolls over and press the edges together lightly.
  7. Place on a greased baking sheet. Let rise for 15 minutes.
  8. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 10 minutes. Brush with melted butter and enjoy.

This recipe is just one of the many great recipes I've found in The Country Innkeeper's Cookbook. You can find this book at your local library or purchase it at
