  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 large eggs


  1. Begin by combining the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. This includes the all-purpose flour, active dry yeast, granulated sugar, and salt. Mix well to combine all ingredients evenly.
  2. Next, add in the wet ingredients to the bowl. This includes the melted butter, warm milk, warm water, and eggs. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to mix everything together until a dough forms.
  3. Once the dough has formed, it’s time to knead it. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead it for 5-10 minutes. This will help to develop the gluten in the dough, resulting in soft and fluffy rolls.
  4. After kneading, place the dough in a large, greased bowl. Cover it with a clean kitchen towel and let it rest for 10 minutes. This will allow the dough to relax and rise slightly.
  5. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  6. Once the dough has rested, it’s time to shape the rolls. Divide the dough into 16 equal pieces and shape each piece into a ball. Place the balls of dough on the baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each roll.
  7. Cover the rolls with a clean kitchen towel and let them rise for 20-30 minutes, until they have doubled in size.
  8. Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Remove the rolls from the oven and let them cool on a wire rack.
  9. Serve warm with butter or your favorite dinner spread. These rolls are perfect for pairing with soups, stews, roasted meats, or any other meal you can think of.


  • Make sure the milk and water are warm but not too hot, or it can kill the yeast.
  • If you don’t have a large mixing bowl, you can use a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment to knead the dough.
  • For a shiny finish, you can brush the rolls with melted butter or an egg wash before baking.

In conclusion, this dinner roll recipe is a crowd-pleaser that is perfect for any occasion. With just a few simple steps, you can make 16 soft and fluffy rolls that are sure to impress your family and friends. So what are you waiting for? Give this recipe a try and enjoy the delicious results!
