Soft and fluffy homemade bread rolls, ready in about 30 minutes!


  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp unsalted butter divided
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. 

  2. In a small saucepan, melt ¼ cup butter. When butter is melted, add in buttermilk. Bring mixture to 110°F.
  3. Add yeast and honey to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with dough hook attachment.
  4. Add buttermilk mixture to yeast and stir until everything is combined.
  5. Stir in salt and egg until evenly mixed.
  6. Add in 2 ½ cups flour. Set mixer to low and allow mixer to mix and knead dough.
  7. Continue adding flour, 1/4 cup at a time, until dough pulls off the sides of the bowl. Dough will still be sticky, but it should have formed a ball that is no longer sticking to the sides of the bowl. You will only need about 3 ½ cups to 3 ¾ cups of flour total. Save the rest for flouring your board.
  8. Flour pastry board and hands with leftover flour. Knead dough a few times on board and then divide into 12 equal pieces. (If you want to be very precise, you can weigh out the dough pieces on a scale.)
  9. Shape dough into smooth round balls. Place balls into baking pan. Cover with a paper towel or plastic wrap and let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  10. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until tops turn a light golden brown.
  11. Melt remaining 2 tbsp butter. Brush over surface of warm rolls. Serve immediately.
