If you’re looking for an easy, soft and fluffy dough recipe, look no further! I have it right here for you! This dough recipe can be made in a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment and doesn’t need to be kneaded. You can make cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls or bread out of this recipe.


  • For the dough:
    • 600g Flour (Type65)
    • 10g Active Dry Yeast
    • 10g Salt
    • 50g White Sugar
    • 200g Butter (unsalted & softened)
    • 200g Milk
    • 2 Eggs
  • For the filling:
    • 150g Butter (unsalted & softened)
    • 250g Brown Sugar
    • 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • For the glaze:
    • 1½ cups Powdered (icing) Sugar
    • 1 tablespoon Butter (soft)
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 4 tablespoons Milk


In the bowl of your stand mixer, add the milk, eggs, yeast, flour, salt, sugar and butter. Using the dough hook, mix all the ingredients together on a low speed. Once all the ingredients are combined, turn the speed up to medium and allow the dough to mix for about 8-10 minutes. The dough should come aside cleanly from the side of the bowl once it is ready.

Transfer the dough to a large, clean mixing bowl that is coated with a little flour and cover with cling film or clean tea towel. Allow your dough to rise for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Once it has doubled in size, lightly flour your surface and roll the dough out into a large rectangular shape. The dough should measure about 30cm x 42cm.

For the filling mix the butter, sugar and cinnamon together with an electric mixer or a whisk and spread it onto the dough. Starting with the longer side, roll the dough by slowly pushing the dough forward onto itself and in the end, you should end up with a long, log type dough roll. Using a sharp knife or a pastry scraper, divide the dough into either 12 large or 24 small even rolls.

Place the dough rolls evenly into a baking tray, leaving some space in between each roll and allow to rise again for 20-30 minutes. At this stage you can preheat your oven to 190°C/370°F. Prepare the glaze by mixing the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and milk until you have a pouring liquid consistency.

Bake the rolls for 15-20 minutes (depending on their size), but you will know that they are ready once the tops have turned a nice golden brown. Remove from the oven and pour over the prepared glaze while they are hot.


There is not much more satisfying than making your own homemade soft, fluffy dinner rolls! Lather on some good old butter while they’re still warm and fresh out of the oven. Mmm…it’s the little pleasures in life! So I’m here to share my Homemade Dinner Rolls Recipe with you and I hope you enjoy making AND eating them!


  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/3 cup Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
  • 250ml (1 cup) Lukewarm Water (43°C/110°F)


  1. In a bowl or jug, place the water, yeast and sugar and set aside for about 10 minutes to activate the yeast.
  2. Place the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Add in the yeast mixture, egg and oil and start combining. You can do this by hand or with your stand mixer and the dough hook attachment.
  3. Once the dough has come together, transfer it to a floured surface and knead until it becomes smooth, yet slightly stocky. In a stand mixer, mix until the dough looks smooth and pulls away cleanly from the edges.
  4. Form a ball with the dough and place it in a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
  5. When your dough has doubled in size, remove it from the bowl and place it on a lightly floured surface. You can put some flour on your hands so that the dough doesn’t stick to your hands too much and it makes it easier to work with.
  6. Divide your dough into 12 equal sizes and roll into balls. Grease and line a baking dish and place your dough balls into the dish, covering it with tea towel or plastic wrap.
  7. Let the rolls rise again for another hour, or until doubled in size.
  8. Preheat your oven to 190°C/375°F.
  9. Now, they are ready to be baked! Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on the tops. As soon as they come out of the oven, brush the tops with some melted butter.


Bread doesn’t have to be complicated or intimidating to make at home. There are so few ingredients that go into making bread at home, that you really can’t go very wrong. And it’s so rewarding to make your very own bread in your own kitchen and of course even more satisfying to eat! When you feel that soft dough in your hands, smell the fresh yeast aroma through the house and hear that crispy crunch, you’ll wonder why you haven’t made this sooner!


  • 500g (4 cups) All Purpose Flour
  • 350ml (1½ cups) Warm Water (37°C – not boiling water, just warm to the touch as too hot will kill the yeast)
  • 5g (1½) teaspoons Yeast
  • 2 teaspoons Salt


In a bowl, add the flour, salt and yeast. Add the water and mix with the back of a wooden spoon as it is very sticky at this point.

If you are using a stand mixer, add the flour and salt and then add the yeast and water. Using the dough hook attachment, mix on medium-low speed until the dough becomes smooth and resembles a creamy dough. (the dough is very sticky at this stage)

Brush a large bowl with some vegetable oil and place the dough in the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place it somewhere warm to rise for about an hour or until it doubles in size.

Once the dough has doubled in size, transfer it to a floured surface and divide the dough into 2, 3 or 4 equal parts. Roll each piece into a 30cm/12 inch rope and place them on a baguette pan or baking tray. Cover them with a tea towel and let them rise until doubled in size, around 1 hour.

Preheat your oven to 240°C/460°F and place an oven proof dish or skillet on the bottom rack. Place the baguette pan/baking tray on the top shelf and add 1 cup of water or a handful of ice blocks to the dish/pan on the bottom and close the door quickly.

Bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Let them cool for a little while before serving.
