J Dub’s 1 Hour Yeasty Rolls is extremely easy. Seriously, who doesn’t want homemade bread in an hour?  When I bake, I use a kitchen scale so that my ingredients are EXACT. I have owned several, but my favorite brand is Taylor. This scale is not expensive and will make your baking results so much better.


375 ml (1 1/2cups ) of warm water

2 1/4 teaspoons Quick Rise Yeast (7 grams) (I use Red Star)

2 tablespoons sugar (24 grams)

4 tablespoons room temperature butter (56 grams)

1 teaspoon kosher salt (6 grams) (I use Red Diamond)

4 cups bread flour (512 grams) (I use King Arthur)

4 tablespoons melted butter for brushing tops

Sea salt to sprinkle over rolls

Directions For Mixing

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer using the whisk attachment, dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water and let stand for five minutes until foamy.
  2. Change out the whisk attachment for the dough hook and turn mixer to low speed.
  3. With mixer running, gradually add the 4 cups of flour and mix until completely incorporated.
  4. Add the salt and mix again.
  5. Add 4 tablespoons room temperature butter to the yeast mixture and turn mixer to lowest setting
  6. Continue mixing kneading the dough until the dough starts to pull away for the sides of the mixing bowl.  This can take anywhere from 4-6 minutes depending on your mixer motor.
  7. The dough will be slightly sticky to the touch when it starts to pull away from the bowl.
  8. Cover the bowl with a warm towel and allow the dough to rest and rise approximately 25 minutes.

Directions for Baking

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  You can also use a 9 X 13 casserole dish lined with parchment.
  3. Sprinkle two tablespoons flour on a cool surface.
  4. Gently punch the dough down in the bowl and remove from bowl to the floured surface. 
  5. Divide the dough into 24 equal portions using the flour you sprinkled on your surface to keep dough from sticking.  I just eyeball the size I want. But, you can use a scale that will help to make sure the dough balls are of equal size.
  6. Place the dough balls next to each other allowing them to touch.
  7. Brush the tops with melted butter and sprinkle with sea salt to your taste.
  8. Allow the balls to rise again for approximately 25 minutes.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
  10. Remove from oven and brush again with any left over melted butter.
