45 Minute Rolls

Ok…so this recipe was originally called “30 Minute Rolls” when I first tried it, but it bugged me that it actually takes 45 minutes to make them. 🙂 Regardless, these rolls are super fast to put together and absolutely delicious. We like to use the leftover rolls for sandwiches or hamburger buns.

45 Minute Rolls

1cup plus 2 Tbsp warm water (1 1/8 cups)
1/3 cup oil
2 Tbsp yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3 1/2 cups bread flour (all-purpose will work if you don’t have any bread flour)

Heat oven to 400°.

Combine water, oil, yeast, and sugar in the mixer bowl and allow to rest for 15 minutes. Using a dough hook, mix in the salt, egg, and flour. Knead with the hook for a few minutes–until flour is well incorporated and dough is soft and smooth.

Grease a 9″x13″ pan. Grease your hands and pinch the dough into 12 balls. Place the dough balls into the pan and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

Bake for 10-12 minutes at 400° or until golden brown.


These rolls are Michael’s new favorite recipe. I make them at least once a week unless I want to risk a cranky crew at home! Please let me know if you try them.

  1. Just devoured my first roll hot from the oven! They are nice and tender and really did only take 45 minutes to make. I’m hoping the glorious smell will distract my hubby from the fact that dinner didn’t get made . . .
