Roll Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk warm 100 degrees
  • 1 1/8 teaspoon active yeast or 1 package
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus more for kneading
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup butter melted plus 1/4 cup butter, melted (optional) (unsalted is best, salted butter is fine to use)
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Honey Cinnamon Butter

  • 1/2 cup salted butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar


Roll directions

  • In a cup or small bowl, stir together the warm milk, sugar, and yeast. Allow the yeast to proof and begin to activate while you prepare the other ingredients. (This is not necessary, but I prefer this to use milk cold out of the refrigerator). 
  • Using a stand mixer or food processor, combine the flour, egg, 1/3 cup melted butter, and salt. Add the milk mixture and process until you have a smooth dough; it will be stickier and wetter than regular bread dough. Place the dough in a greased bowl, turn the dough to grease all sides, and cover with a towel. Let rise until it has doubled in size.
  • When the dough has doubled, punch it down and turn it out on a floured board. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Roll out the dough into a large, flat rectangle approximately 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 16 portions with a sharp knife and place on a greased baking sheet and let rise again, until doubled. 
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake the rolls for 10 minutes on the greased baking sheet. They will be light brown when removed from the oven. If desired you can brush the tops of the rolls with the remaining 1/4 cup melted the butter before serving.

Honey Butter directions

  •  Prepare honey cinnamon butter by combining butter, cinnamon, honey, and powdered sugar with a mixer until well blended. 


Recipe Tips

  • Use regular white sugar for this recipe - don't use any sugar substitutes or you will compromise the flavor.
  • Use warm milk to make the rolls rich-tasting
  • I also suggest using saf-instant Gold Instant Yeast, 1 Pound Package.  This yeast really helps to improve the flavor of the final result. Regular bread yeast works well, but the gold instant yeast allows the sweet flavors to really peak out and this can really enhance the flavor of these rolls.
  • Use your bread machine to stir everything together.  The machine will knead the dough and it will rise while in the machine.  Then you can remove it and cut it before baking in the oven.
