  • 1 cup warm water (110°F or 45°C)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour


Step 1: Prepare the Dough

  1. Activate Yeast: In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm water, vegetable oil, yeast, and sugar. Let it sit for 5 minutes until the mixture becomes frothy.
  2. Add Egg and Salt: Add the egg and salt to the yeast mixture and stir to combine.
  3. Mix in Flour: Gradually add the flour, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. The dough should be soft but not sticky.

Step 2: Shape the Rolls

  1. Knead Dough: On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for about 3-5 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  2. Divide Dough: Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and place them on a greased baking sheet or in a greased baking dish.

Step 3: Let the Rolls Rise

  1. Rise: Cover the rolls with a clean kitchen towel and let them rise in a warm place for about 10 minutes. They should puff up slightly.

Step 4: Bake the Rolls

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) while the rolls are rising.
  2. Bake: Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until they are golden brown on top.

Step 5: Serve

  1. Cool and Serve: Allow the rolls to cool for a few minutes on a wire rack before serving. Enjoy your warm and fluffy 30-Minute Rolls!

Cooking Notes and Tips

  • Water Temperature: Ensure the water is warm (about 110°F or 45°C) to properly activate the yeast. Water that is too hot can kill the yeast.
  • Kneading: Kneading the dough helps develop the gluten, which gives the rolls their structure and texture. Don’t skip this step!
  • Rising: If your kitchen is cool, you can let the rolls rise in an oven that has been preheated to 200°F (90°C) and then turned off.


Garlic Herb Rolls

Add 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1 teaspoon of dried herbs (such as rosemary or thyme) to the dough for a savory twist.


Cheesy Rolls

Fold in 1 cup of shredded cheese (such as cheddar or mozzarella) into the dough before shaping the rolls.


Sweet Rolls

Add 1/4 cup of honey or 2 tablespoons of cinnamon and 1/4 cup of raisins to the dough for a sweet variation.


Whole Wheat Rolls

Substitute half of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour for a heartier roll.
