 Super simple yeast rolls with homemade whipped honey butter

Can we talk about how much I love homemade bread? When I was growing up, my mom used to get so mad at me, because when we would go out to dinner, I would fill up on free bread and then barely eat my meal. What can I say? Fresh, hot bread is the best food ever.

Now, the only thing that makes bread even better is when it’s slathered in fresh butter. I decided to make my own whipped honey butter because I love the combination of creamy, salty and sweet. It’s basically the best flavor combination on planet Earth. Am I right?


Super-simple yeast rolls recipe

 Super simple yeast rolls with homemade whipped honey butter

Yields 24


  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour (more flour may be needed)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 packet quick active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup warm whole milk
  • 1 large egg


  1. In a bowl of an electric mixer, add 2 cups of flour, the sugar, butter, salt, yeast, warm water, warm milk and egg.
  2. Mix together on low for about 2 minutes, sprinkling in more flour as needed to create a dough that is together and not too sticky.
  3. Flour your counter, and turn the dough out onto the floured area. Sprinkle more flour on top of the dough, and flour your hands.
  4. Knead the dough about 5 minutes, until it is smooth. If your dough is sticky, then add in more flour, and if your hands get doughy, make sure to wash it off, re-flour and then continue kneading.
  5. Lightly spray a large mixing bowl with nonstick spray, add in the dough, cover, and let it rise for 1 hour. At this point the dough should be double in size. Make sure to keep your dough in a warm place for optimal rising.
  6. Once the dough is ready, spray two 9-inch cake pans with nonstick spray.
  7. Punch down the dough, and divide it in half. Cut each half into 12 pieces, and roll each piece into a ball.
  8. Equally space 12 balls into each cake pan.
  9. Cover the pans, set them in a warm room, and let the dough rise for about 30 minutes, until the rolls are double in size.
  10. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, and bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown on top.
  11. Remove the rolls from the oven, and brush with honey butter.
