These soft bread rolls are the best and simplest rolls you could ever make! Perfect to serve with any soup, salad or main dish, these easy dinner rolls are super fluffy and light and impossible to resist!
Begin by mixing fresh yeast with warm water until the yeast is completely dissolved. Make sure the water is not hot as this will kill the yeast.
Add sugar and mix well until the sugar is dissolved. Allow the yeast to "feed" on sugar for a few minutes before moving to the next step.
Place the rest of the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix using a whisk.
Make a hollow in the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients, mixing with a spoon until about half the dry ingredients are incorporated into the wet ingredients.
Start kneading with your hands until the dry ingredients are incorporated.
If needed, add more room temperature water, a little at a time until you're happy with the dough texture and tackiness.
Move the dough to a table and knead until the dough is smooth and just a little elastic and tacky but not too sticky; if it sticks to your hands and you can't get it off easily that's considered too sticky. If you have a bread machine, using it for kneading is your best option.
Place the dough in a bowl, cover with wrap and let rise in a warm place until it doubles in size, about an hour. See my tip above for speeding up the rising process.
Remove the wrap and gently punch the dough to eliminate air bubbles.
Start forming rolls with your hands and place them in a baking dish, lined with baking paper.
Cover with plastic wrap and let the rolls rise in a warm place until double in size.
While the rolls are rising, pre heat the oven at 350 F - 180 C
Remove the wrap and place the baking dish in the middle of the oven.
Bake for about 15 minutes or until the crust is golden.
