Yesterday was Randal's birthday. We don't usually do much for our birthdays, we go all out for Christmas but the rest of the year for any celebration we just go out for a nice dinner. As his birthday was mid week we did that on the weekend before, then on the actual day I made him whatever he wanted for dinner, this year he wanted Italian sausage spaghetti so as a last minute thing I decided to throw a dough together in the bread machine and make some buttery rolls to go with dinner.
I cannot adequately describe just how buttery and delicious these rolls turned out to be. I could have happily just eaten those for dinner, definitely the best dinner rolls I have ever made!
1 packet dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup warm milk
4 cups bread flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 stick butter, melted
In a small bowl, add the yeast to the warm water and set aside.
Pour the warm milk, sugar and the quarter cup of softened butter to the bread machine pan. Add in the yeast mixture.
Add the 4 cups of flour, salt and set bread machine to the dough cycle.
When the dough cycle is complete, place the dough onto a floured surface. Divide the dough into 4, then divide each section into 4 pieces of dough. Roll into balls and place in a buttered pan. Cover and leave to rise for 45 minutes, or until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 350.
Brush the rolls with melted butter and bake for 20 minutes. Brush the hot rolls with remaining butter as soon as they come out of the oven.
