Plump and Soft Butter Rolls (Using a Bread Maker)

Plump and Soft Butter Rolls (Using a Bread Maker)

These soft, plump, silky-tender butter rolls are packed with butter and have a very milky taste. Let your bread maker make the dough and these rolls will be done in about 2 hours.

Ingredients: 10~12 rolls

Bread (strong) flour
240 g
Cake flour
60 g
Milk + 1 egg
195 g when combined
6 g
30 g
Skim milk powder (optional)
15 g
Unsalted butter
40 g
☆Dry yeast
6 g
☆Beaten egg (glazing)
a small amount
☆Flour for dusting
as needed


1. Put all the ingredients except the ☆ ingredients in a bread maker and start the 'dough' function. Put the dry yeast in the yeast compartment.
2. After the first rise in the bread maker, divide the dough into 10~12 portions with a scraper and roll into balls.
3. To prevent it from drying, cover the dough with cling film and put a moist tea towel on top. Leave to rest for 10 minutes.
4. Roll the dough to into a cone shape (rather like a carrot) then flatten it out with a rolling pin. Roll up the dough from the wider end.
5. Place the rolls on a baking tray with the end of the roll on the bottom and with space in between. I can bake only 6 rolls at a time in our oven, so this is how I placed them on a baking tray.
6. I line a large microwave plate with parchment paper, and place the remaining 6 rolls on it. Cover with cling film and put on top of the oven for the second rising.
7. Put the 6 rolls on the baking tray in the oven, and allow to rise for the second rising for 40 minutes, using the oven's 'bread rising' function.
8. Brush the egg wash on top to glaze. Bake in a preheated 190℃ oven for about 8 minutes. Do the same with the rest of the rolls.

Story Behind this Recipe

I used the butter roll recipe on the packet of bread flour as the base,. I added a lot of butter and milk in the dough to suit our family's tastes. I've tried various ratios to make bread dough, and we like this one the best. Please give this a try.
