Yeast Rolls
Lunch Lady Cafeteria Rolls {Step by Step Pictures and Instructions….NO MIXER NEEDED}
Recipe type: Breads
Cook time:  12 mins
Total time:  12 mins
Serves: 48
This dough also makes excellent cinnamon rolls. The recipe is large enough that you can do 24 rolls and 20-24 cinnamon rolls if you play your cards right.
  • 3 cups warm water
  • 2 tbsp + 1½ tsp yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 /4 cup butter, melted
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp + ¼ tsp salt
  • 10 cups flour (can be up to 4 or 5 cups wheat and still get great results)
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup shortening
  1. Add yeast and sugar to warm water and let sit for 3-5 minutes
  2. Add melted butter (cooled), milk, eggs and salt to yeast mixture
  3. In a large bowl combine flour and sugar. Stir until combined
  4. Using your hand crumble shortening into flour until it is barely noticable
  5. Pour liquid yeast mixture into flour mixture
  6. Using a large wooden spoon, stir until well combined.
  7. When dough starts to come together, ditch the spoon and use your hand to knead the dough for approx. 2 minutes until it comes together in a nice ball.
  8. Place dough in a warm area, covered, until it doubles in size. (I do this in my oven. While I mix the dough I heat the oven to 195 degrees. then I turn the oven off right before I put the covered dough in. This step cuts back on time dramatically. Dough will be doubled in 15-30 minutes.)
  9. After dough has doubled in size, punch it down and knead with your hands one more time for 2 minutes. If dough is a bit sticky sprinkle it with flour as needed.
  10. Prepare pans and form dough into 2 inch balls and place onto cooking sheets. I like rolls to be touching so I have to pull them apart when they are done. If you don’t like that place them at least 1-2 inches apart on your cooking sheet. I cook mine close together in 9×13 pans.
  11. When dough is formed into rolls and placed on pans, cover and allow to rise until almost doubled again. I put my pans top of the oven while it is preheating and this step usually only takes 15-20 minutes.
  12. Back at 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
