Deliciously fluffy butter rolls!

Hello, everybody! Mary Jane here with a great butter roll recipe. My only caveat with this is that you MUST leave room for them to rise while baking.
See, a little squished together so they didn't turn out as perfectly pretty as the picture.
Mix 1TB yeast,1/2 tsp sugar with 1/4 cup warm water and let rise for ten minutes. 
Add one cup warmed milk, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 cup sugar and mix with a wooden spoon.
Add one cup of flour to the second bowl and mix well. Add two eggs and beat until smooth. Add the yeast and mix well.
Now add 3-4 cups of flour. I used 3 1/2, just until it was firming up, but was still sticky.
Cover and place in a warm place to double in size, usually about two hours.
When ready, take a lump of the dough and lay on a heavily floured surface. The dough should be very springy and full of air bubbles. Add a sprinkle of flour as needed.
Roll about 1/4 inch and cut in triangles. You can make them as large or as small as you wish.
Brush butter on the rolls and on a baking sheet. Place in a warm area and let rise for about an hour.


Yup, they really did come out perfectly buttery and fluffy! They would have been even prettier if they hadn't grown into one giant roll, but hey, live and learn!

Until next time! Be sure to stop by my author pages at Mary Jane Hathaway and Virginia Carmichael for all my newest book news. 


  1. Oh. My. It's been so long since I've had soft homemade rolls like these! I don't care if they squished together, they look delicious!

    I might just have to think about making bread today...

    1. We make bread so often that I've had to put a moratorium on the bread making!

  2. I immediately think of Peter's Grandmother in Heidi and her love of soft rolls. LOL

    So, I'm going to a potluck on Monday night. Main course is chili -- dare I attempt these to bring along?????

    1. HAHA, I'd totally forgotten about her!

      And did you try them? How did they turn out? I've never had them fail me...

  3. Oh my goodness, my mouth is watering! These look amazing!
