30 Minute Roll

I’ve been meaning to make my own bread so when I’ve found this 30-minute dinner roll recipe I did not have any second thought and tried it last weekend. Recipe from “Your Homebased Mom” site

1 cup plus 2 Tbsp warm water
1/3 cup oil
2 tbsp yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3 1/2 cup bread flour (seems to work better but all-purpose flour will also work)

Heat oven to 400 degrees.
In your mixer bowl combine the water, oil, yeast, and sugar and allow it to rest for 15 minutes.  Using your dough hook, mix in the salt, egg, and flour.  Knead with hook until well incorporated and the dough is soft and smooth. (Just a few minutes)
Form dough into 12 balls and then place in a greased 9 x 13 pan and allow to rest for 10 minutes.  Bake for 10 minutes at 400F degrees or until golden brown.

I don’t know why this is called “30 Minute Roll” because I finished everything in more than 30 minutes and it was not successful because I can’t form dough balls. The dough is really sticky, I don’t know if I need to use flour on my hands to form dough balls. I went back to her site and read some comments and I was not alone. Next time I will put some oil on my hands so I can form dough balls. I found a video and it looks so easy.

But I was having a hard time last weekend so I put the whole dough in the baking dish and increase the baking time. Hehe! The bread was too dense and some parts are not fully baked. It doesn’t look good but it was edible. We spread some butter, cream cheese, and sardines omelet. 


  1. .. at least edible pa din... practice makes perfect daw.. :D

  2. tuturuan kita paguwi ko. usually pag sticky, it means you have to add more flour. wag oil, di mo ma roll pag oil. Ganom mga recipe. kulang and flour. pero siyempre kung di ka pa sanay mag bake, di mo alam. hayaan mo pag uwi ko, gagawa tayo ng marami. hi hi
