Homemade Dinner Rolls with Sweet Milk

Prep Time 2 hrs
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 2 hrs 25 mins
Servings 12 dinner rolls


  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter softened
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup +/- warm water


  • Place all the ingredients but the water in a bread machine pan set to dough option. Or you can use a mixer with a hook attachment.
  • Then add one cup of water and start mixing the dough.
  • Watch it as it mixes. The dough should be ready when it comes together and separates from the side of the bowl. Add more water and/or flour in small amounts, as needed, depending on how the mixture behaves.
  • Allow to rise until almost doubled (about an hour or so).
  • Once it has risen, transfer to a lightly floured surface and shape into a loose rectangle.
  • Using a cutter, cut the dough into 12 equally-sized pieces.
  • Then roll into balls and put into a greased rectangular baking pan, equally spaced three wide and four deep.
  • Finally, spray lightly with cooking spray and cover loosely with plastic wrap to keep moist.
  • Allow the rolls to grow to almost double in size (about 1 1/2 hours).
  • Place in a pre-heated oven at 375° F and bake for 25 - 30 minutes. Or until the rolls are golden brown and sound hollow when lightly tapped on top.
  • Remove from oven and brush generously with melted butter.
  • Serve warm.
