These dinner rolls smell as good as they taste. You'll never reheat store-bought again! Makes 18 rolls.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 5 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4-oz. package active dry yeast
  • 6 tbsp. melted unsalted butter plus extra for brushing the tops of the rolls before baking
  • 1 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 2 1/2 tsp. poppy seeds or sesame seeds (optional)
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Groceries
  • 2 9-inch Round Cake Pans
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Pastry Brushes
  • Saucepans
  • Spoons
  • Mixing bowls
  • Pour 1/4 c. very warm water (like a hot bath) into a small bowl and sprinkle the yeast into the bowl. Stir gently and let stand 5 minutes, or until a foam rises to the surface.

  • Heat the buttermilk in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until just warm. Remove from heat.

  • Stir in the yeast mixture, melted butter, eggs and sugar.

  • Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in a large bowl and make a well in the center.

  • Pour the liquid ingredients into the well and mix until the dough holds together.

  • Turn the dough out onto a slightly floured surface and knead, adding flour as necessary, until the dough is smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

  • Form the dough into a ball and place in a large buttered bowl.

  • Turn the dough until it is coated with butter, cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let stand in a warm spot until the mixture has doubled in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.

  • Butter two 9-inch round cake pans.

  • Punch the risen dough down and knead briefly inside the bowl.

  • Cut the dough into 18 equal pieces.

  • Place a piece of dough on a work surface and tuck the dough underneath itself, turning as you tuck until you have formed a firm ball.

  • Repeat with the remaining dough and, as you work, place the rolls in the prepared cake pans.

  • Cover the cake pans with plastic wrap and let stand in a warm place until the rolls have doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter and sprinkle with seeds (optional).

  • Bake rolls 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.
