No-Knead Dinner Rolls

Very nice bun, I liked the texture and the crust wasn’t to soft. I baked them for 30min. at 400 in a gas oven, I also had a pan of boiling water on the lowest rack, not sure if that was necessary, but it didn’t hurt. I just mixed with a wooden spoon until the dough came together, no kneading at all. I just ate one with some butter and yum! I will definitely make them again. Thank you Martha for another fantastic recipe!!


I made these as the recipes directed. I did add garlic salt to the butter to brush the rolls before baking. All while baking they started to look golden brown to early so I put a layer of foil on the rack above to shed them some. I think some people with density issues or thought it called for too much flour didn’t “spoon the flour into the measuring cup. This step is very important, contrary to what many believe. The texture come out tasting more like “bread” but it was very good and I can’t wait to make again.

These were delicious. The texture was nice. I made the. The night before and popped them in the oven for breakfast. Excellent recipe and easy to prepare. I am wondering if you could use this recipe to make bread. I will definitely make these again



I have never had success with making anything with yeast UNTIL TODAY!! I cut the recipe in half, followed the steps exactly and got the most delicious rolls ever! They raised even more while baking. I will never look for another no milk roll recipe again. This one is a keeper!!


easy and simply delicious; I will be making these again and again. I like the idea of using them to make cinnamon rolls as well.


let me tell you, i have been making this recipe since i saw it in 2007. these are the best rolls. i use this recipe to make my cinnamon rolls. everyone loves them. my husband says they taste just like rolls we would get at the chinese restaurant…but mine are even better. if you are a first time bread maker this is a great recipe to start with. thanks martha for such great recipes.



i have made these three times and have had delicious results every time. i’ve never altered the recipe and i’ve always made them the day before, then taken them out of the fridge a good 30 minutes prior to baking (so the pyrex doesn’t explode). tenting is a must and they are done in about 35 minutes. i’m not much of a baker but i do love eating baked goods. these are so easy and fit the bill!


I made this for thanksgiving and it was a hit. Nothing that special – as you can tell from the title – but everyone commented that the bread was good and of course, I thought, much better than store bought. I followed the recipe exactly as it is except I only baked for about 30-35 minutes. I baked two batches in the same oven at the same time. If you are a totally foodie/chef, you might want to try a more interesting recipes but in general this works! Good luck!


Bake @ 400 for 35 to 40 minutes? Only if you want cinders with your meal. That is way too long!!!


5 cups is the most that should be added to this recipe. 6 would make it too dry. Recipe needs to be modified


I tried this recipe for Thanksgiving several years ago and it became a family favorite that I make every year. The recipe is perfect as it is, so posters that say it was dense or crumbly are probably not following the directions, measuring ingredients incorrectly, or using old ingredients. I have refrigerated overnight with no problems. I have doubled the recipe with no problems. I have even baked them and then reheated later. Perfect every time!


This dough NEEDS kneading. It’s super DENSE without it. Good flavor though, so potential to be awesome if can overcome the tiredness that comes with not kneading.


Wow, I just used this and it turned out great!!! I will use this from now on! kids tested and there mother approved!!!


Easy to make but the taste and texture was terrible. Mine came out dry and crumbly. They fell into crumbs when opened to put on butter. I like the concept, but I think it might have been the lack of milk in the recipe, and if it were kneaded just a little bit, it might help with the texture. I’ll try it again, with half water and half milk and on a non-holiday because home made rolls are essential in our family holiday meals and they need to be good.


Mine tasted like tea biscuits. Does anyone know why?


loved these rolls..very easy to make too..will be making these again for Thanksgiving and x-mas.. :))


Great rolls! Easy and delicious!


These are really no-fail and are DELICIOUS! I’ve made them in several sizes. I have bot left them in the fridge overnight. It is just amazing the difference fresh bread makes. It makes me wonder… how do they get supermarket bread so light and tasteless?


Made these for Thanksgiving and they were buttery and soft. I liked the fact that they came out well even after being in the fridge overnight. I will definitely use this recipe again!


Easiest rolls I’ve ever made. Also the best rolls I’ve ever made.


If you want sweeter roles double the sugar. I did it and didn’t have a problem. Also, works equally as well with whole wheat flour.


Don’t know why rest of my comment didn’t show up! I went on to say that I made these LAST min. Didn’t let them rise AT ALL! Mixed them (with rapid rise active dry yeast), made into rolls, put directly into oven. Cooked for 35 mins


Holy smoke, these were amazing! I didn’t have time do do any of the rising the recipe called for, so I just mixed everything in my Kitchenaid, made them into the rolls, and put them in the oven. They rose a ton in the oven, and were the beautiful.

These rolls are the BEST! They were easy, made the house smell wonderful and they’re very tasty! I’ll definitely be making these again!


I made these for Christmas in 2007 and they were such a hit with my husband’s family. It was established that from then on out, I was to bring the rolls to our holiday get togethers. I recommend these to anyone who loves bread, especially homemade.


These tasted great, but didn’t look good. I put them in the fridge overnight and the next morning they looked like a large loaf of bread


these were delicious and easy and of course made the house smell wonderful, thanks


This was easy and good. I think it would make really good cinnamon rolls as well.
