30 Minute Yeast Bread Rolls

Anyone who has ever made yeast bread from scratch knows how long it takes. It’s a rewarding process in the end, but you do have to set quite a bit of time aside for creating fresh, soft bread. Until now.

I was really curious when I came across a recipe for making yeast bread in 30 minutes–including baking time! Could it be true?

Well mine took a little more than thirty minutes, but it was still pretty fast and the end result was a soft and fluffy bread that is perfect as a dinner roll or a snack. I couldn’t believe how unbelievably soft these were. They did seem to have a slightly underdeveloped taste because they rise for so little time, but they are still good and perfect for having fresh bread rolls ready in a cinch.

The rolls are a little on the sweet side. Not quite a sweet roll, but if you are looking for a more savory roll you might want to reduce the sugar. The recipe below includes the times it took me to make the recipe. The original recipe had it all timed down to 30 minutes, but like I said, mine ended up taking about 45. Still worth it though.

30 Minute Bread Rolls


1 Cup plus 2 Tbsp warm water (about 100F)
1/3 Cup oil
2 Tbsp yeast
1/4 Cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 egg
3 1/2 Cups bread flour


1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
2. In your mixer bowl combine the water, oil, yeast and sugar and allow it to rest for 15 minutes. Using your dough hook, mix in the salt, egg and flour and knead the dough for six minutes with dough hook on medium to high speed.
3. Form dough into 12 balls and then place in a greased 9 x 13 pan and allow to rest for 10-15 minutes, until dough has risen at least 1 1/2 times original size and begin to press up onto each other. Bake for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees or until tops turn golden brown.
