Light, fluffy, piping hot, easy yeast rolls. Easily and deliciously started in your bread machine, then finished in the oven, for perfect, hot, soft buttery yeast rolls.
Thought it took someone with a PhD in baking to make these beauties? Guess again, I told you when I first started this blog that I am surrounded by people who are excellent cooks, bakers and candlestick makers, okay maybe not the last one, but it sounded good.
This recipe is from my dear friend and awesome cook Julie! She is one of the kindest, gentlest, integrity filled women I know and on top of it all she makes the BEST Chinese food, actually, she makes the best of all types of foods! What I love most about this recipe is that all of the hard work is done in your bread machine!
With Easter coming next Sunday, these are the perfect addition to your holiday menu or to bring to Easter brunch. But honestly, these are delicious and easy enough to do at any time! Who doesn’t want a piping hot, fresh buttery roll with a bowl of your favorite soup?
Here is a picture of them hot from the oven!

Gather your ingredients (plus an egg) which for some reason, isn’t shown.
Place all ingredients in the bread pan in the following order:
- butter, softened
- bread flour
- active dry yeast
TIP: Yeast is temperamental, if possible when placing it in the pan put it next to the sugar, not the salt. Yeast feeds on sugar, salt tends to kill it.
Place ingredients in your bread maker and choose the white, large, dough cycle, not the full bread cycle, but just dough, you will finish them up after the first rise.
After the dough cycle is finished…
Punch down and plop onto a floured surface and divide into 16-24 equally shaped pieces.
Next pinch into round little dumplings
Brush tops with melted butter…
TIP: I like to put my oven setting on 100º, turn off, then place the rolls in to rise. Or if your oven has a “proof” setting use that.
Once doubled in size, about 30-40 minutes, remove from oven and preheat oven to 375º. Bake until golden brown, if desired brush again with melted butter just before serving and sprinkle with a little flaky sea salt.
