This recipe is featured at Miss In The Kitchen.


In a mixing bowl, blend together yeast, 1 cup flour, sugar, and salt. Heat milk and butter to 120º to 130ºF; butter does not need to melt. Add to dry mixture; blend on low speed. Beat 2 to 3 minutes on medium speed. Add eggs; beat 1 minute. By hand, stir in baking powder, baking soda, and enough remaining flour to make a smooth, very soft, sticky dough. Place dough in lightly oiled bowl. Cover; let rise until dough tests ripe.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; punch down to remove air bubbles. Divide dough into 4 parts. Divide each part into 2 pieces. Divide each piece into 3 sections. Shape each piece into a smooth ball. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after touching. Bake in preheated 375ºF oven 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter if desired. Remove from pan; cool.



You can substitute Instant (fast-rising) yeast for Active Dry Yeast. Traditional methods- replace 1:1. Expect your dough to rise faster; always let your dough rise until ‘ripe’. Bread Machines- use 1/2 tsp Instant yeast (or 3/4 tsp Active Dry yeast) per cup of flour in your recipe. Visit our Lessons in Yeast & Baking for more information.


Fluffy and tasty


My first time to make this. Though I did the yeast test first as I am afraid I might have stored my yeast wrong. So I have made some revisions on how to add the ingredients but it turns out great. Anyway, i so love that this is so fluffy and tasty. I will surely make this again.

Cut Back on Oven Temp

At 10 minutes (375) they were pretty dark, yet not quite done (a little doughy). Next time I will cut back to 350 and cook for 15 min. Otherwise we liked them.

Best dinner rolls

I made 2 dozen of these for Thanksgiving dinner, they were fairly easy to make & turned out awesome!!

Good post


Rolls are my favorite items. I equally like vegetable as well as non vegetable rolls. Really excited to visit your blog and find these recipes shared here! I enjoy cooking experiments and I am definitely going to try this! what causes snoring

family loved it!

I was an little intimidated about how sticky it was suppose to be before the first rise, but my first batch using Red Star was amazing! I used rapid rise in combination of hand-mixing (I don't have a bread machine :/), and oven rising for both rising stages. For a nice surprise, I added a slice of cheese in the middle for half the batch when I was forming them into balls. Delicious. Definitely will make more in the future.

Angel Rolls

These are the best rolls I've made in a very long time. It's my first try at using Red Star yeast and I must say I'm impressed. My niece told me about it and I bought it at Costco to try. The pkg was very large, but I have no doubt it will get used up very quickly with the recipes here. I was totally surprised at the great gluten free recipes offered and will be using them, as my daughter-in-law is allergic to gluten.

Finally found THE one!

I have been looking for the perfect soft and fluffy roll for a very long time. I bought the Red Star quick rise yeast in the jar at the store last week and thought to check out the red star yeast website for recipes and three days later making these Angel Rolls in a row, I still can't believe how wonderful these rolls are! This is going to be my signature potluck item for all gatherings I go to!

very light and fluffy. Very

very light and fluffy. Very Good. I did have to cut the baking time down to 10-12 min. as you know not all ovens bake alike
