Soft Rollls

How Big to Make the Rolls?

These rolls are a pretty generous size, if you want more rolls, or if youโ€™d rather they were a bit smaller you could definitely cut them into smaller portions (I might do 5 rows of 4, and shape them into a rectangle instead of a square to cut).

But in my mind, Iโ€™m thinking we each just always have two rolls at my house, so instead, Iโ€™ll just make them bigger. Dinner rolls are usually fairly small so I just decided to make them the size I think their soft, tender goodness deserves.

The first few times you make them it may take a little bit longer than 1 hour, maybe 1 hour 15 minutes but once you get the hang of it theyโ€™ll be a breeze to make.


5 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1pkt yeast (10g)
1 cup boiling water
1 cup lukewarm milk
1/2 cup oil


Mix the wet ingredients and add to the dry ingredients. Knead the dough for 7-8mins. Leave to rise double in size (about 1 hr).
Knead the dough. Make small balls (12-14) and then line a baking pan with baking paper or grease the pan with margarine/butter. Leave to rise for 15mins.
preheat the oven to 180ยฐC/350ยฐF and bake the rolls for 16-18 mins. Brush the rolls with butter/margarine when still hot.
