I have such good memories tied to the comforting smell of fresh baked bread.  What’s any better?  A loaf of bread cooling in Mama’s kitchen on a Fall day,…piping hot rolls in the oven at Nanny’s house on a holiday,…and when I was little, around 7 years old, on Daddy’s first day of delivering bread, he brought the fully loaded truck by the house around 3:00am for us to experience.  You could smell the fresh browned crust of buttered split top wheat bread, honey buns, and cinnamon rolls, and that started my obsession with breads of all kinds.  

Something made from the heart means so much, and will leave lasting memories.  Comforting aromas and love will fill your kitchen when you try this recipe.  Follow the recipe in this easy step by step video, and let me know what you think.  And remember, bake with love!

Easy No Knead Dinner Rolls

Simple Ingredients. Just stir, shape, rise, and bake!
Servings 15


  • 1 1/2 c. warm water
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. active dry yeast
  • 1/2 stick melted butter (plus 3 more Tbsp. to brush on tops)
  • 3 1/4 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. salt (if using unsalted butter, use a heaping tsp. salt)


  • In a mixing bowl, add warm water, sugar, and yeast. Whisk together until combined well. Allow to rest, uncovered, for 5 minutes for yeast to bloom (will become foamy/frothy on top).
  • Add melted butter, flour, and salt. Stir until all flour blends in. No kneading required! Cover the bowl. Let rise for 30 minutes in a warm, draft free area (such as near your oven or cooktop.) For extra help during rising, place a simmering pot of water nearby to create extra warmth.
  • Transfer dough to a floured surface. Fold dough over itself 4 times, and create rough square. Divide dough into 15 equal pieces using a bench scraper or knife. Roll each piece into a tight ball and pinch to seal. (See video)
  • Place dough balls in a 9x13 pan lined with parchment paper. If you don't have parchment paper, lightly grease your pan. If you don't have a 9x13 pan, you couls use a cookie sheet. Leave a little room between rolls to allow for rising. (See video)
  • Brush tops of rolls with a generous amount of melted butter, cover loosely, and rise for an additional 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Uncover, and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 20-22 minutes, or until nice and brown. Baking times will vary depending on your oven.
  • Enjoy!
