8 Weeks of Easy Family Dinners E-Cookbook!
These one hour dinner rolls are soft and fluffy, and really do take only about an hour from start to finish, including rising time. They are the perfect compliment to any meal.
I have always been really nervous to work with yeast dough because it seems so delicate and difficult to work with. But I love bread. I knew that eventually I would need to come to terms with my fears and this was the perfect recipe!
Since getting my Kitchen Aid Mixer, that dough hook attachment has been calling to me. I’ve seriously never used it in the two years I’ve had the mixer! I’m participating in a recipe swap and today I’m sharing this One Hour Dinner Roll recipe from my friend Alicia at The Baker Upstairs. It was the perfect opportunity to break out the dough hook attachment.
Folks, let me tell you – this is a great recipe! It was easy to follow, and the results are these delicious, soft and fluffy rolls that we thoroughly enjoyed. The only thing I did differently was to bake them in my cast iron skillet instead of in a 13″ x 9″ pan. I also did need to use almost a cup more flour than the four cups called for in the recipe, but the quantity is stated as being “more or less.”
The humidity and air temperature (hot, dry day versus a cold and rainy day) can cause difference in the absorption of flour, and can also drastically affect the dough’s ability to rise. I was baking on a cold and rainy day, so I needed more flour, and the rising took a little bit longer than it would have on a hot and dry day. It still works, you just may need to adjust the recipe slightly based on your location and the weather.
Nearly half of the rolls were gone even before dinner time…and there are only a few left now. If you’re a scaredy cat like I was, I think you should give this homemade dinner roll recipe a try. You’ll be amazed at how good and easy it is!
Stand Mixer – This baby is the workhorse of my kitchen and makes bread making a breeze.
Cast Iron Skillet – With a multitude of uses, a cast iron skillet is a great addition to your kitchen. It bakes and cooks evenly and requires minimal effort for upkeep. It also lasts forever!
