There really is nothing better than homemade rolls.

I LOVE this easy dinner roll recipe. A great addition for your Easter dinner. 

For one, it does not require your stand mixer. Dump, mix, rise, shape, rise, bake.

For two, has no oil or butter in the dough.

For three, it’s got avocado.

Most importantly, it’s SOOOO GOOD!! These rolls are amazingly soft when hot. So microwave cold rolls until hot before chowing down. 

The first time that I tested these no knead dinner rolls, it was served to a bunch of teens at home and I passed with flying colors!!! 

No one would ever guess that these fluffy goodness are made with avocados:)

Let us get to the fine details of the recipe – 

  1. Mix yeast with lukewarm water and sugar and let get frothy 

  2. Stir all ingredients together along with bubbly yeast mixture to get soft but not sticky dough. 

  3. Let rise until doubled.

  4. Shape into 12 balls and let rise again until doubled. 

  5. Bake. 

  6. finish with a little melted butter. 

Key factors in creating the best no knead dinner rolls 

  • Dough should be soft but not sticky. Adjust flour accordingly. 

  • Let Rise!!! Do not rush this process. Well risen dough equals softness. Set dough on the warmest spot on your kitchen (near a kitchen window on a bright sunny day) or in the oven during cooler days. Set oven temperature to 170 degrees F (or the lowest that your oven can go to). As soon as the oven begins to heat, let it warm up for 20-30 seconds (don’t let it go to 100 degrees). Turn off oven and place the bowl inside and let rise until doubled. If oven reaches 100 degrees or higher, leave the oven door open for a minute or two to cool down before keeping the dough. 

  • Do not let the rolls get deep brown. Remove when they are golden. 

  • Finishing off with butter ensures softer crust.

To make no knead garlic rolls – brush rolls with a mixture of melted salted butter, garlic powder and dried parsley. Sprinkle freshly grated parmesan. YUMMMM.

To make no knead hamburger buns – divide dough into 6 pieces and proceed with recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons lukewarm water, refer notes
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour + additional 1-3 tablespoons if required
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm milk, refer notes
  • 1/4 cup mashed ripe avocado, about 1/2 medium
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon melted butter

Instructions

  1. Place the yeast, lukewarm water and 1/2 tablespoon sugar in a small bowl. Stir, cover and set aside until it froths (about 10 minutes). 

  2. Add remainig sugar, 1 1/2 cups flour, lukewarm milk, mashed avocado, salt and risen yeast mixture into a medium bowl. Mix well with a spoon. Dough should be soft but not sticky. If dough looks sticky then mix in additional 21-3 tablespoons flour. Switch to your hands and mix dough until well combined.

Rise-1

  1. Cover bowl with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel and rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until doubled in size. (Refer notes for instructions on using your oven for rising the dough). 

Rise-2

  1. Grease a 9x13 inch pan with non-stick cooking spray (you could use a parchment lined sheet pan instead).

  2. Lightly grease the counter with non-stick cooking spray, dump dough onto the greased surface and divide into 12 equal pieces (if dough sticks to your hand then lightly grease your hands too). 

  3. Shape each piece into a ball (gently roll dough between the palm of your lightly greased hands to form a loose ball. Do not press). Place all balls in the prepared baking pan, spacing evenly apart.

  4. Cover pan with a plastic wrap or kitchen towel and let rise for 30-45 minutes or until doubled in size. 

Bake

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Uncover and place baking pan in the middle rack. Bake for 20-24 minutes, until rolls are golden. 

  3. Place pan on a wire rack and immediately brush with melted butter. Serve hot. 

  4. These rolls are best eaten hot. Pop cold rolls in the microwave for a few seconds to re-heat them before serving. 

Recipe Notes

Luke warm water/milkAn easy way to check without a thermometer- sprinkle few drops of water on the inside of your wrist. It should neither feel hot nor cold. 

The dough should be soft but not sticky. If dough looks sticky then add additional 1-3 tablepoons flour. 

During cooler days, I adopt the oven method to rise the dough : Set oven temperature to 170 degrees F (or the lowest that your oven can go to). As soon as the oven begins to heat, let it warm up for 20-30 seconds (don’t let it go to 100 degrees). Turn off oven and place the bowl inside and let rise until doubled. If oven reaches 100 degrees or higher, leave the oven door open for a minute or two to cool down a touch before keeping the dough. 

To make no knead garlic rolls - brush rolls with a mixture of melted salted butter, garlic powder and dried parsley. Sprinkle freshly grated parmesan. YUMMMM.

To make no knead hamburger buns - divide dough into 6 pieces and proceed with recipe.
