Easy No Knead Dinner Rolls

February 10, 2022Teresa

Oh my gosh, guys, these are the best dinner rolls EVER! The wonderful thing about them is that all the hard work–the kneading–is done in the breadmaker. No stirring or anything! I have made these Easy No Knead Dinner Rolls about ten times since mid-December and everyone always raves over them. I use the same dough for my sweet rolls too. They turn out just as great.

Follow Me On Instagram!

I must thank my daughter-in-law, Candice, and her mother Betsy for this recipe. They have made it so many times and perfected the dough over the years. We visited them in early December and Candice made these rolls along with a Beef Stew the first night we were there. Oh my! We ate the rolls with apple butter. What a treat. A day or two later, Candice, used the same dough but made cinnamon rolls. Gulp! Yes, we cleaned those out very quickly. I begged her to make them again for another meal we were having. That time I wrote down the ingredients and directions on my phone. I also added lots of tips.

Since then, I’ve made this recipe so many times that I have a few more tips to making these rolls just about perfect! My first batch of rolls were only raised about one hour. Subsequent batches I’ve raised 1 hour 15 minutes to an hour and a half. Truly, one and a half hours is the best. The dough raises to the very top of the baking dish in that length of time so they turn out soft, fluffy and so mouthwatering you can make a meal out of them!

I also stretch , roll and pull the dough so that it’s a lot smoother on the tops than my first few batches. But whether they’re pretty or not, these are some of the easiest, best tasting dinner rolls ever. I’ve given them to neighbors, and I’ve made them for our Thursday night Bible study group. I’ve made them for company and just for us. Everyone just drools and drools over these dinner rolls. We sure do. 🙂

I’m kind of a “chicken” in many ways. I’m NOT a risk taker by nature. I’ve had this breadmaker about eight years and I had never used the “dough” setting before to knead dough. Wow. What a mistake. It makes homemade rolls so much easier that you feel like making them often. On top of that, this time of the year, who doesn’t want hot soup and bread for lunch or dinner?

We like to slather the rolls with apple butter or jelly, but even plain butter is wonderful on them. If I have any leftovers I keep them on the counter. Then I cut them in half and toast them the next day. A dollop of apple butter on top is absolutely my favorite way to eat them.

Seriously, if your family enjoys eating homemade rolls, it’s worth having a breadmaker to make these up weekly! Easy No Knead Dinner Rolls are a real treat that your family and friends are going to ask for again and again.

One of my mom’s secrets when making homemade rolls or bread is to brush the rolls with butter before and after baking. That ensures the rolls are soft and not hard and crusty on top.

I like to raise the rolls about an hour and thirty minutes. That way they have enough time to puff up really big. These rolls were excellent with Cabbage Soup too!

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients. You can use any kind yeast, including bread machine yeast, but I recommend sticking with Fleischmann’s as the recipes don’t fail like they do with other yeast brands.

Place salted butter in the bread canister. I usually cut it up in pieces.

Add warmed half-and-half or whole milk. Don’t use any lower percentage fat in the milk. I usually warm the half-and-half about 1 minute 15 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds in the microwave at 50% power.

Add bread flour and sugar. I usually always use bread flour because it has more gluten. My daughter-in-law uses regular all-purpose flour and she has great results with that too.

Add sea salt and yeast. Place in breadmaker and choose the “dough” setting.

Allow the breadmaker to knead the dough. My breadmaker usually takes about one hour 45 minutes.

I cut the dough up into 12 equal size pieces (as much as possible). Roll the dough into balls. Stretch the tops so all the wrinkles are moved to the bottom of the dough.

Grease a 9×13″ glass baking dish with butter. Place dough balls into baking dish. (In subsequent batches of rolls I stretched the dough on the tops so the dough was smoother.)

Brush each roll with melted, salted butter.

Place the heat on the oven for exactly one minute. Turn off oven. Place rolls in oven. (Don’t cover them). Set a timer for 20 minutes. Heat the oven again for exactly one minute. Turn off oven. Set a timer again for 20 minutes. Heat the oven a third time for exactly one minute. Turn off oven. Set a timer for 20 minutes.

If the rolls have not risen to the top of the pan, heat the oven again for exactly one minute. Turn off oven. Set a timer for another 20 minutes. You may have to repeat this one more time before the dough reaches the top of the dish.

I only raised these rolls about an hour at this point. It’s really better to keep raising them about 1 hour 30 minutes for the best results.

Leave the rolls in the oven and turn the oven on to 350 degrees. Set a timer for 25 minutes. The rolls should be done by that time. But check the middle to make sure the insides are not still gooey. Brush the tops of the rolls with additional melted, salted butter.

Serve! This was a later batch of rolls. This is what they look like when you smooth the wrinkles out of the tops of the rolls before raising.

I made the dinner rolls and served them with Georgia Chili. Oh my. Having Apple Butter slathered on tops of the rolls made this a meal made in heaven! 🙂

Here’s the recipe.

Instructions
  1. For best results, please read all the notes below before starting.
  2. Layer ingredients in bread canister in order given.
  3. Slice butter into slivers and place in bread canister.
  4. Warm half-and-half or whole milk in the microwave one to two minutes until milk is warmed.
  5. Pour into bread canister.
  6. Then add flour, sugar, salt and yeast.
  7. Place on dough setting of bread maker.
  8. This will take approximately 1 ¾ hours.
  9. Remove dough from bread canister and divide evenly into 12 sections.
  10. Roll each section into a ball and place in a rectangular baking dish greased well with butter.
  11. Brush rolls with a tablespoon or two of melted butter.
  12. Put in a warm place until the rolls expand, about an hour and a half. (See tips below).
  13. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until rolls are no longer doughy in the middle. (See note below).
  14. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter again before serving.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: For best results, do not use less percentage of fat than whole milk in this recipe.

NOTE: While you can use any kind of yeast including bread machine yeast, I do not recommend any other brand of yeast than Fleishmann’s. Those other brands have a tendency to fail.

NOTE: I usually warm the milk in the microwave at 50% power for 1 minute 15 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds.

NOTE: To smooth the tops from wrinkles, keep stretching the dough and tuck the wrinkled parts under the bottom of the roll (where they won’t show).

NOTE: To raise the rolls: I turn the oven on 350° for exactly one minute. Turn off heat and slide pan of rolls into the oven (uncovered). After 20 minutes, heat the oven again for one minute. Turn off oven. Repeat again every 20 minutes and allow rolls to continue raising until they reach the top edge of the pan. The rolls should warm in the oven for approximately 1 hour 30 minutes to get the dough to raise sufficiently. That is usually enough time for the rolls to be raised enough and fill the pan. Then begin baking. Turn oven on 350° and set timer for 25 minutes. The rolls are usually finished baking by that time, but check to make sure the rolls in the middle are no longer doughy. Then remove from oven.

Buttering the rolls before and after baking makes the tops a lot softer and not as tough. These rolls were perfect paired with my Venison Shepherd’s Pie, too!
