Do you love the soft and chewy rolls from the supermarket and wish you could make a healthier homemade version for your family?
This roll recipe is so easy you’re going to love it! I get a lot of compliments from people when they eat these rolls. My husband has been known to eat three or four in one sitting. The best thing about them is that they only take about an hour to make and you usually have all the ingredients on hand.
2 cups of all-purpose flour
2 cups of wheat flour
(you can use 4 cups of all-purpose flour if you want white rolls)
1/4 cup of sugar
1 Tbsp of rapid rise yeast
1 tsp of salt
3/4 cup of water
2/3 cup of whole milk
4 Tbsp of butter cut into chunks
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
In your KitchenAid mixer bowl put in the 4 cups of flour, sugar, yeast, and salt. Mix this well with a spoon.
On your stovetop put 3/4 cups of water, 2/3 cups of milk, and 4 Tbsp of butter in a sauce pan on low heat until butter is melted.
Mix the stovetop ingredients with the flour ingredients. Turn your KitchenAid mixer on the stir speed until dough forms a nice soft ball and has picked up all the flour in the bowl. This will usually take 3-4 minutes and you will have to stop the mixer to scrape sides of the bowl to insure that the flour is mixing well with the wet ingredients.
Lightly flour your countertop and roll dough into an approximate 6×12 rectangular shape. Take a knife and cut lengthwise into 3 sections and widthwise into 5 sections giving you 15 squares of dough total. Butter a 9×13 pan. Make dough balls out of the square dough sections and place in the greased 9×13 pan.
Shut the preheated oven off and stick in your rolls in for 20 minutes. After the 20 minutes, take the rolls out and heat oven to 375 degrees. While the oven is heating, melt some butter in a dish and brush it on the tops of the rolls.
Once the oven is heated to 375 degrees, stick the rolls back in and bake for 15 minutes.
