Easy Homemade Rolls – One rise is all it takes to bake up these beauties! This recipe is unique and delicious! Make these once and you will never go store bought again…they are that easy. And check out the new video we just added below!
Whats the secret to a great one rise roll? Nothing fancy…just simple ingredients put together in a unique way.
How to make Easy Homemade Rolls with only one rise!
Simply mix and knead your dough. Shape into rolls and let rise in a 170 degree oven for 30 minutes. Then crank up the heat to 350 degrees for another 20 minutes, without ever removing the rolls from the oven! Brilliant!
I could probably call these ‘miracle buns’, but I won’t. Tempting though……
This recipe makes 12 rolls. If you need 24, we have that recipe for you! Easy One Rise Rolls for a Crowd!
You certainly do not have to weigh each roll, but if you wanted to be sure you got an even dozen, they would weigh 3 ounces each.
Or you could just roll into a log shape and cut up evenly into 12 pieces….like a normal person.
Place your rolls on a sheet pan or in a buttered 9 x 13 baking dish. Place in your oven set for 170 degrees until double in size. They should look like this after 30 minutes.
Now turn up the heat to 350 degrees without removing them from the oven and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes until lightly brown. Brush with butter and sprinkle with coarse salt if desired.
My Tips for Making Easy Homemade Rolls!
- Serve these the same day you make them for best results.
- We love these with homemade honey butter. One cube softened butter mixed with 1/4 cup honey.
- We used regular yeast, not Rapid Rise.
These rolls would be fabulous with our Beef Barley Soup recipe!
