Easy no knead homemade dinner rolls are nut, corn, and soy-free, with a dairy-free option. These tender dinner rolls are the easiest homemade rolls I have ever made. I didn’t even use my KitchenAid. An incredibly soft dinner roll so good I actually ended up making them twice in one week.
Substitute the butter and milk with a non-dairy, plant-based product to make dairy-free dinner rolls.
These homemade rolls would be delicious with just about everything. My husband even used one instead of a hamburger bun and was nearly drooling after every bite.
To Make Easy No Knead Homemade Dinner Rolls, You Will Need These Ingredients:
- Dry active yeast ~ for corn-free, use Red Star packets, not in bulk.
- All-purpose flour ~ unbleached for corn-free
- Milk or a non-dairy substitute
- Butter or a non-dairy substitute
The dough will rise twice, once in the bowl and once after they are easily shaped into rolls.
I am convinced these no knead dinner rolls will be requested from now on for every holiday. I sure hope I can come up with a gluten-free version!! In the meantime, you could try this gluten-free roll, one of my favorites; Best Gluten-Free Sandwich Rolls ~ Vegan options.
Melted butter is brushed over the rolls while they are still warm after being removed from the oven.
Easy No Knead Homemade Dinner Rolls ~ Dairy-Free option
- 1 tbsp Slightly rounded dry yeast ~ Red Star packets for corn-free
- 2 tbsp Sugar ~ optional beet sugar if needed ~ unbleached for corn-free
- 1/2 cup Water ~ 100-110 degrees F.
- 4 1/2 cups All-purpose flour ~ unbleached for corn-free
- 1 cup Milk ~ Lukewarm non-dairy if needed
- 1 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/2 cup Butter ~ or non-dairy if needed
- 2 LG Eggs
- 2 tbsp Butter ~ melted for glazing ~ dairy-free if needed
- Add 1 tablespoon sugar and dry yeast to a small bowl.
- Heat water to 100-110 degrees F. and pour into the bowl with yeast stirring just to mix. Let sit 5 minutes.
- In a large bowl add the flour, salt, and remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar. Stir to combine.
- Add yeast mixture, warm milk, melted butter, eggs into the flour mixture.
- Mix well until completely combined using a fork or dough whisk. I used my favorite tool…Mix ‘N Masher.
- Cover bowl with a clean dry kitchen towel and let rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours. If needed rise for 2 hours, but I've never needed to. Sometimes 1 hour is enough.
- Remove the towel and punch the dough down.
- Dust your work area with flour and dump the dough right on top. I use a scraper to help remove the dough, as it tends to stick to the bowl.
- Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Dough will be very soft and somewhat sticky so lightly flour your hands as needed to shape dough into balls.
- Place dough balls into a 9 X 13 inch baking pan lined with parchment paper.
- The dough balls will be touching.
- Very very lightly brush a small amount melted butter (1/2 tbsp)over the rolls to prevent plastic wrap from sticking.
- Cover rolls with plastic wrap leaving room for the rolls to rise. Then cover with a kitchen towel and let rolls rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 390 degrees F.
- Remove towel and plastic wrap and bake rolls for 15 minutes.
- Brush the tops with melted butter. Let rolls sit about 5-10 minutes then remove rolls from the pan by lifting with the parchment paper.
