It is no wonder why I love this No Yeast Dinner Rolls recipe so much. It is super easy to make with just 6 basic ingredients that you are more than likely already have in your kitchen.
In addition, because there is no yeast required, they can be baked and ready to serve in less than 30 minutes. No waiting for the yeast to activate. And more importantly, no waiting for the dough to rise before or after you form the dough balls.
It is exactly because of this reason that they have become my new go-to bread recipe. I even make these rolls on busy weeknights when I am serving a comfort food meal such as Crock Pot Beef Stew or my Instant Pot Chili.
However, it has also become my favorite roll recipe to serve at our holiday meals. As much as I love making Texas Roadhouse Copycat Rolls and my No Knead Dinner Rolls, this recipe saves me so much precious time in the kitchen when I need it the most.
So this year, when you are thinking about what type of rolls that you will be serving or bringing to Thanksgiving, Christmas or even Easter dinner, be sure to consider this easy recipe.
No Yeast Dinner Rolls Recipe
- Unsalted butter, melted
- Baking powder
- All-purpose flour
FOR THE TOPPING
- Unsalted butter, melted
The first step in making these No Yeast Dinner Rolls is to preheat the oven. Then line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a silicone baking mat.
Silicone Baking Mat
*I absolutely love my Silicone Baking Mat. Although it took me a long time to purchase a set for my baking sheets, I would never go back to using Parchment paper again.
I have saved a ton of money not having to buy the disposable sheets of parchment paper. Not to mention, that I also feel better about using a reusable product, and not throwing the used parchment paper sheets away after they have been used.
Prepare The Dough
Once you have the baking sheet lined, set it aside and begin to make the dough.
Gather a large mixing bowl and then add the melted unsalted butter, milk, sugar, salt and baking powder to the bowl. Whisk these ingredients together until incorporated.
Then gradually add in the all-purpose flour and stir it until a dough ball forms. If the No Yeast Dinner Roll dough seems too wet, add additional flour.
Do this by adding one additional tablespoon of flour at a time and mix well. Continue to add more until the dough no longer sticks to the side of the mixing bowl.
Once your dough ball is prepared, remove it from the bowl and place on a clean, and floured work surface.
Make The Rolls
Then divide the dough into 12-14 pieces. I find it is easiest to use a dough pastry scraper/cutter to first cut the dough in half. Then cut each half into 6 or 7 pieces.
Once you have divided the dough into even sections, take one section and form it in the shape of a ball. Repeat until each one is formed.
Then place the No Yeast Dinner Rolls on the prepared baking sheet. Be sure to space them about 2 inches apart from each other to allow for expansion when cooking.
At this point, you could brush the tops with an egg wash mixture to make the rolls dark golden brown in color once baked. However, I prefer to skip this step and brush them with butter once they come out of the oven.
Place the baking sheet with the rolls in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes. They are done when the tops turn light golden brown in color.
Once they come out of the oven brush the tops with melted butter and serve warm with your favorite meal.
