Course: Breads
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 24


  • 2 T active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 T warm water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 5 1/2 cups flour, divided
  • 2 tsp salt
  • melted butter for topping


  • In a small bowl (or in the bowl of a Bosch if you are using one) combine the yeast and water. Cover and let yeast dissolve for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat the milk in the microwave until just warm, not scalding.
  • In a large bowl, (or with a Bosch mixer) beat the eggs, sugar, and oil with a whisk. Stir in the milk and yeast mixture. Add the salt, then one cup of flour at a time, mixing/kneading well in between. Start with 4 1/2 cups of the flour and see if more is needed. You want to get a soft, stretchy, tacky dough. Be careful not to add more flour than is needed. Once enough flour has been added knead about 5 minutes (or less if using a Bosch mixer).
  • Cover dough with plastic wrap or with the lid of the Bosch mixer. Allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 2 to 3 hours.
  • Lightly grease a 12x18 inch cookie sheet and set aside.
  • Punch the dough down and turn it onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Divide the dough into 3 equal portions and with a rolling pin, roll each portion into a circle. With a pizza cutter, cut each circle into eight equal triangles, just like you would cut a pizza into eight slices. Roll up each triangle of dough from the wide end toward the point. Place the rolls point side down on the prepared pan.
  • Cover with a clean dishcloth and let rise until doubled, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400° F. Bake for 5 minutes on the bottom rack, then 4-6 more minutes on the center rack. Remove the rolls from the oven and brush with melted butter.

Hi! I'm Amber

I'm obsessed with all things food and a mom to five. Baking bread and using my instant pot are my favorite things to do in the kitchen, and I can't wait to bring all that I have learned to you! Connect with me on Instagram because there's where I basically live these days.
