No-Knead Dinner Rolls & May's Give-Away Apron

I know, from experience, that making yeast bread (rolls) can be daunting and challenging.  So, when I come across a recipe that's easy to make with successful results, I thinks it's my duty to pass it on.  These dinner rolls are no-knead and except for a lengthy rise of 1 1/2 hours, are easy and fool-proof.  Perfect accompaniment with dinner and my friends that know me, know that I've been on a mission for years to show how easy baking can be and eliminating preservatives from our daily lives since our daughter passed away from breast cancer. Here's a link to read on the dangers of preservatives and additives: http://www.healthguidance.org/entry/9987/1/Dangers-of-Food-Additives-and-Preservatives.html

No-Knead Dinner Rolls

4 1/2 cups (600g) Bread Flour
1 T dry yeast
1/2 cup (125g) warm water
1 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 1/2 T (50g) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup (250g) milk

Additional unsalted butter, melted, for baking dish and brushing the tops of the rolls.

First, in a 1 cup glass measuring cup, whisk the yeast into the warm water, adding about 1 tsp of granulated sugar (from the 1/4 cup called for in the recipe.)   Allow to rest 5 to 7 minutes until it becomes foamy.

In a large bowl (I used my large stainless steel bowl) mix together the flour, salt and remaining sugar together.
In a 2-cup glass measuring cup, melt the butter, then add 1 cup of milk and the two large eggs. Whisk together and add to the dry ingredients.


I stirred the dough with a rubber spatula, but you could also use a wooden spoon.  Don't worry, it will look shaggy--remember, no-kneading!
Cover the bowl with a cotton towel you've dampened with very warm water, then set the bowl in a warm place to rise for 1 1/2 hours.  My screen-in porch on an 85-degree day was perfect!
When the dough has doubled, turn out onto a floured board.  This is where you can lightly knead it into a semi-smooth log.
Divide the dough into quarters, then each quarter into thirds for 12 rolls.
Shape the rolls into a round ball, pinching the bottom of the roll to come together.


Place the shaped rolls into a 9" x 13" baking dish which has been brushed with melted butter. Brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter and cover with plastic wrap.  Allow to rise another 30 to 40 minutes.  Preheat oven to 375F-degrees (190c).


Place risen rolls into the preheated oven and bake 16 to 18 minutes, until golden brown.


Easy, right?  Serve these and your family will be very happy...enjoy!

Now, hold on to your hats...I actually have May's Apron sewn!  The pattern caught my eye at my local quilt store~Wish Upon A Quilt and the pattern is "Save the Bees."  As a gardener, I not only love flowers, but I too am concern with the bee population being diminished by pesticides and pollution.  This is our planet and we need to leave it in good shape for future generations.
When you comment on a post, you will be eligible to win this month's apron.  Good Luck!

  1. I love the dinner rolls and would eat the entire pan full of them. Shame on me. Have to watch my carbs. and food as I am on blood thinners.

    I buy the frozen one by Bridgeford Foods. I used to work with them on the big product seminar for their sales personnel. Would always leave me a lot of product. Since it's just me only use a few. You also have to let them rose too.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe - will try it next time I have friends over for dinner.

    Have a terrific week.

  4. I wish I didn't love bread as much as I do! Your rolls look so very good and moreish. I would love some for my Jumbleberry Jam.
    I have an affinity with bees, my name is Hebrew for bee, and I seem to have many mugs with bees on them and have been thinking about writing about this soon.

    1. Jumbleberry Jam sounds wonderful! My name in Hebrew means Lily...that's why I love flower.

    2. Jumbleberry Jam is easy! I freeze my fruit crops through the season, then through the winter make up fresh batches of jam every so often. At the end of the season I just throw all the small amounts of left over berries into my preserving pan and make up Jumbleberry Jam using my favourite berry jam recipe. Very easy and very delicious.
      I love your name meaning Lily!

  19. Just last night I made honey butter in order to use some honey that had crystallized. I was thinking that I needed a really good yeast roll recipe so we could slather on the honey butter. I think yours looks like the one!
