Golden Honey Rolls!

Several of you have been requesting a really good yeast roll recipe for your bread machine.  These delicious "Golden Honey Rolls" are my Aunt Ann's recipe she uses when making rolls with her bread machine.  They are so good, they just melt in your mouth and they couldn't be much easier, as far as homemade yeast rolls go!   Here is what you will need for these rolls:
1 cup milk, heated to very warm
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 Tbs. honey
1  1/2 tsp. salt
3  1/2 cups bread flour (can use all purpose flour)
2  1/4 tsp. yeast  or 1 pkg.
Add warm milk to the bread machine.  To the milk add egg, oil and honey.  Add the flour.  Make a well in the center of the flour.   Add the yeast right into the center of the well.
Add the salt around the outer edges of the flour.  DO NOT let the salt and yeast touch at this point.  Salt added directly to yeast before mixing can inhibit it's growth or even kill it and your bread won't rise.
Set you bread machine on the dough cycle.   Watch to see that it forms a soft ball.  If it does not form a soft ball, add a wee bit more flour.  If it forms a ball that is too stiff, add a tablespoon of warm milk.
When the cycle has completed, roll the dough out and cut as you would for biscuits.  Place on in a greased baking pan and allow to rise for 1 hour.   They will rise best in a draft free, warm place in your kitchen.
Place in a 350 degree oven and bake about 20 minutes or  until golden brown.
***If you don't have a bread machine, you can mix these in a stand mixer with a bread hook using the same directions.  You then let the dough rise in the bowl, that has been loosely covered with a clean kitchen towel, for about 2 hours or until it has doubled in size!  Cut out and let rise again for an hour and bake!


  1. What is the approximate yield for this recipe, and would it work if I halved it? I don't have a bread machine and want to try this, but my small family couldn't eat several dozen rolls before they went stale, and I don't want to waste food.

    1. It doesn't say what size biscuit cutter they are using but from the amount of flour and liquid I would say you absolutely could do half of this recipe and it is still going to give you 12 or more good sized rolls. I am sure they would freeze just fine if you make too many. Good luck.

    2. You should get about 2 dozen so I don't see why you couldn't halve it.

  2. Or...take 1/2 of the rolls and freeze them.
