Tips on how to make perfect Bread Rolls.

  • Just like on our Pan de Coco post, All ingredients (butter, eggs etc.) should be in room temperature.
  • Make sure to check for the expiry of the yeast.
  • When using dry active yeast make sure that there are bubbles after adding water, if not discard and make new one.
  • Add salt after mixing all ingredients or if you already have a dough as to not affect the activation of the yeast.

  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 3 tbsp powdered milk
  • 1/1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast or instant yeast
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water (or milk)
  • 3 tbsp soften butter (let butter soften in room temperature)
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • If you are using dry active yeast, you need to activate by adding 1/2 cup of lukewarm water and set aside for 5 minutes or when bubbles form. If you are using instant yeast you can directly add to dry ingredients.
  • In a mixing bowl put bread flour, powdered milk, sugar and mix well together. (if you are using instant yeast, you can add it with the rest of the dry ingredients).
  • When the yeast mixture is activated (bubbles forming on top of mixture), add the egg and pour in with the dry ingredients.
  • Using a stand mixer with the hook attachment, mix everything in low speed until well incorporated.
  • Then add butter and salt and continue beating in low speed for 5 mins. When the butter mixed well with the dough continue beating in medium speed until your dough becomes soft and elastic.
  • Removed dough from mixing bowl then place it in another bowl greased with cooking oil and let it rise for 1 hour or depending on the humidity.
  • When the dough doubled in size you know you achieved a good rise. Dump the dough on the table or counter and punch the dough to release the air/gas inside.
    raised dough
  • Divide the dough in two equal parts. Set aside one part and cover with dry kitchen towel.
  • With the other dough, Flatten with a rolling pin and roll into a log shape and cut into small equal pieces (40 grams of dough) or approx. the size of a medium tomato.
    dough rolled
  • Take one piece from the that you just cut and roll it into a shape of an elongated ball. 
    dough with filling
  • Place all the dough on a baking tray with parchment paper and let it rise for 20 minutes. While waiting you can pre-heat the oven (375°F or 180°C°).
  • Before baking apply eggwash (1 beaten egg + 1 tbsp milk) and poke the top of dough with fork.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes depending on what oven you are using or until golden brown. ET VOILA!
