Prep Time 45 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
- 3 1/4 - 4 cups all-purpose
- 1tsp sea salt (fine)
- 2-3 tbs melted butter (for brushing)
- 1 cup water
- 2 tbs melted butter
- 1/2 milk
- 2 tsp honey
- 1 tbs active dry yeast
- Preheat the oven to 400°F or 200°C. Using nonstick cooking spray, grease a 9x13 baking dish and set it aside.
- In a heat-proof bowl, combine the water and melted butter, then stir in the milk and honey until blended.
- Microwave the butter mixture for 1 minute, stir, then heat for 15 seconds at a time until the butter is melted and it reaches 110°F (you can use a thermometer to check).
- Transfer the warm butter mixture to an electric mixing bowl and sprinkle the yeast evenly on top. Use a fork to gently stir the yeast into the mixture and leave it for 5 minutes until it activates and foams up.
- Combine the flour and salt then add about 3 1/2 cups of this to the yeast mixture. Mix on medium-low speed until the flour is blended in completely. If the dough is too sticky, add a 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of flour (the mixture should not exceed 4 cups ) and mix until the dough stay together and is sticky to the touch.
- Mix for another 4-5 minutes until the dough is smooth, then shape it into a ball and place in a greased bowl. Cover the bowl with a damp kitchen towel and allow the dough to rise for 15 minutes.
- Punch the dough to release the excess air and portion into 15 pieces of the same size. Roll each piece into a ball and place it into the prepared baking dish. Cover once more with a damp kitchen towel and proof the dough balls for another 15-20 minutes or until they double in size.
- Remove the towel and bake for 15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown in color. Move the baking dish to a wire rack and brush the rolls with melted butter.
- Serve warm.
