Delicious dinner rolls using a bread maker.
Prep Time 1 hour
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 3 hours 20 minutes
Course Breads
Servings 12 rolls


For the dough:

  • * 1¼ cups lukewarm water
  • * 2 egg whites
  • * 1 tsp salt
  • * 1½ tsp sugar
  • * 1 tbsp soft butter
  • * 3½ cups Manny's Choice Flour more may be needed
  • * 1 tbsp yeast active dry

For the egg wash:

  • * 1 egg white
  • * 2 tbsp milk


  • Put all dough ingredients into bread maker.
  • Set bread machine to dough setting. (This will take about 1 & 1/2 hours)
  • NOTE: after the first few minutes of the machine kneading the dough, check that the dough isn't sticking to the sides of the bread maker and has formed a 'ball'. If the dough is sticking, add a tablespoon of flour, let it knead and gradually add more if needed. The dough should come together without sticking to the pan.
  • When dough is ready, remove it from Bread Maker. Place dough on counter that's lightly dusted with flour and gently fold it several times.
  • Form into a roll, about 12 - 16 inches long and then cut into 12 sections.
  • Form each piece into a ball and place onto 2 lightly greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until double in volume, about 45 minutes.
  • About 15 minutes before baking, preheat oven to 425°F. Place an empty baking sheet on bottom rack.
  • When oven is hot, gently brush rolls with egg wash (mixing 1 egg white with 2 tbsp milk). Cut a fairly deep slash in top of each roll with very sharp knife.
  • Place 1 cup of ice cubes on the hot baking sheet in oven just before placing baking sheets with rolls into oven. 
  • Bake for about 18 - 20 minutes or until tops are nicely browned. Be careful when removing the rolls from the oven ... there may be steam that escapes when you open door (from ice cubes).
  • Remove to rack and let cool for about ½ hour before serving.
