Step by Step Instructions:
- Step 1 – Mix together water, sugar and yeast. Let stand about 10 minutes, or until yeast begins to activate (small bubbles will form).
- Step 2 – In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, slowly add in oil, salt and flour. Mix until well incorporate and then continue to knead for about 2-3 minutes.
- Step 3 – Oil sides of bowl. Remove dough from mixing bowl and place in glass bowl, turning to coat with oil. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rise for about an hour or until doubled in size.
- Step 4 – Spray an 8″ x 8″ glass baking pan with cooking spray. Divide the risen knead dough into 9 similarly sized balls.
- Step 5 – Arrange in the prepared dish, leaving some space around each ball to allow for rising. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise about 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.
- Step 6 – Once risen again, bake rolls in 350 degrees oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from oven and immediately butter the top of each roll. Enjoy these warm, fluffy melt rolls.
- Fresh Ingredients – Make sure when making homemade bread recipe that your yeast has not expired.
- Prepare Baking Dish – Prepare the baking dish by spraying with cooking spray. This helps to easily remove the homemade Hawaiian Rolls easily.
- Combining Ingredients – We recommend using the dough hook to combine the ingredients. It is much easier using the stand mixer than doing it by hand.
