Quick Dinner Rolls 

Quick dinner rolls

Bread is my one major weaknesses. I could probably sustain on fresh bread and cheese for the rest of my life. Like that is a surprise! So these amazing quick dinner rolls are a blessing for those times when I have a real craving for some bread.

I make these often with great success except for the shape. Since the dough is a very wet one and the proofing time is not much, shaping the dough well is a near impossibility. I am sure it will happen some day. Till then I have to make do with sad photos of a great bread. The amoebic shape doesn’t have too much impact on the taste but I do wish I get the perfect shape for these quick dinner rolls to make a good blog photo. Fingers crossed for next time.

Key pointers for a delicious quick dinner roll

  • I would recommend not to try this recipe with whole wheat flour because it hardly has any proofing time and the rise may not be good with whole wheat
  • Use warm water which aids in quickening the yeast action. Warm means warm to touch but not hot.
  • It will be very tempting to add more flour to this dough and make it manageable. I urge you not to do that. It will adversely impact the softness of these quick dinner rolls
