Homemade Dinner Roll Recipe

These dinner rolls are a cinch to make. And did I mention, they don’t require any kneading?

They are simply made by mixing the ingredients together to form a thick batter.

And then dropping them into greased muffin tins.

After baking these rolls, they will come out super soft. And incredibly yummy!

How to Make This Roll Recipe

Begin by mixing the yeast with warm water and honey until dissolved. Then add in half of the flour mixture and mix until smooth.

Next, add in the melted butter and egg until well combined. And then the rest of the flour. Allow to rise until double.

While the dough is rising, I start to prepare the rest of dinner. That way these rolls are the last things to make. So they’ll be warm & fresh out of the oven in time to eat our meal!

These are a drop dough recipe. So you’ll fill muffin pans about half full. It makes 1 dozen delicious dinner rolls.
