Quick Fluffy Dinner Rolls

Prep Time15 minutes
Cook Time15 minutes
Rise Time30 minutes
Total Time1 hour
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 rolls
Calories: 143kcal


  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or honey
  • 2 tablespoons oil any neutral flavored
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 cups all-purpose flour


  • Turn on your tap water until you have very warm water. Add to the bowl of a stand mixer and sprinkle the yeast and sugar on top. Let the yeast sit for about five minutes or until it gets bubbly. If you have a dough hook attachment on your stand mixer, use it for these rolls.
  • Mix in oil, salt and flour. Start with 3 cups of flour, begin mixing, and add more flour gradually until the dough has pulled away from the sides of the bowl. Knead the dough for 4-5 minutes in your stand mixer. The dough should be soft and smooth but still slightly tacky to the touch. If it still feels really sticky, add 1/4 cup flour and mix again.
  • Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. You can use a food scale if you want to get really accurate. To form the dough into round balls, cup your hand over the dough ball, and move your hand in a tight circular motion while keeping slight pressure on the dough to form a round ball.
  • Preheat your oven to 400℉. Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking pan. Place dough balls in rows of 3 across and 4 down. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and place on your stove. The heat from the heating oven will help them rise. Rise for 30 minutes (can take 45 depending on how warm your kitchen is) or until they look puffy and doubled in size.
  • Bake for 14-17 minutes until they are lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven and brush with butter using a pastry brush. Serve warm and enjoy with your favorite soup, or as a side to dinner.
