Molly's Rolls

So...I love bread any bread!! I can eat an entire loaf when it is warm right out of the oven! I have been blessed with a fast metabolism, but I am sure that when I am no longer chasing 4 boys around all day, everyone is going to KNOW how much I LOVE bread:) Actually now that I am getting older and after recently having baby #4, you can already see that I love my carbs:)

I have never had much success with baking my own bread and rolls. I never seem to get it to rise very well and end up with a roll that is too heavy and just not good!! Anyone that knows me may wonder why I can't make bread when my mother makes such WONDERFUL bread and rolls! Guess I was too busy with other things in high school to really sit down and learn.

I have really been working on my bread making skills and made some bread last night that was SO yummy! Wonderful texture too! I did have one major problem with it though....I put my bread pans too close together to rise and the dough stuck together, so when I pulled them apart and put them in the oven to cook the tops fell. The bread is delicious though, so I will try it again this week and try to get a good picture to share with the recipe.

I got the recipe for these rolls from my friend, Molly, a couple of years ago and have adapted it so that it is a small enough batch that I can make it using my Kitchen-Aid. These rolls are wonderful and believe me when I say that if I can make them.....than anyone can!!

Molly's Rolls


  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 package yeast(2 1/4 teaspoon)
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/2 T salt
  • 1 egg
  • flour

Directions: In mixer combine yeast, sugar, and warm water; let grow until bubbly(about 5 minutes). Add milk and mix. Mix in oil and egg. Slowly add 2 cups flour, mix and then add salt. Add 1/2 cup flour at a time until it comes away from side of bowl. Let rise in mixing bowl for about 30 minutes. Form rolls as desired and place on a greased cookie sheet. Let rise and additional 30 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes. (Rotate pans after 7 minutes.) Brush hot rolls with melted butter.

Have a GREAT evening! I'm off to get kids fed and dressed for Cub Scouts Pack meeting:)
