Buy A Candy Thermometer For The Cloverleaf Rolls

Making sure your water and milk and butter mixture are at the right temperature is a must for this recipe. You can buy a candy thermometer, which is highly affordable to see what the temperature of your water and milk/butter mixture is. If you mix it with your yeast and it is too hot, you will kill off your yeast, and the rolls will not turn out. Having the right temperature of 105 degrees is a must. If you follow that step in the instructions you will set yourself up for success.

What I love about this recipe is it uses basic staple ingredients and takes just 60-minutes to make homemade rolls. They are light, fluffy, and buttery! Now, I recommend using real unsalted butter, you will get a better texture and flavor than using margarine. A no-knead roll that will warm your heart!

Ingredients for Cloverleaf Rolls

  • 1 Packet of Dry Active Yeast 
  • 1/4 Cup butter divided
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup warm water (105 degrees)
  • 1/4 cup warm milk (105 degrees)
  • 2 1/3 -2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 

easy cloverleaf rollsHow To Make Cloverleaf Rolls

First, put 2 tablespoons of butter with your milk and warm it up on the stove or in microwave slowly. Have a candy thermometer handy, and pull it off heat when it reaches 105 degrees.

Add in the sugar and yeast into a bowl, along with the milk mixture and allow the yeast to activate. This takes around 5-10 minutes. You want the yeast to bubble up.

Next, warm your water up to 105 degrees. Slowly pour into the yeast mixture once it has activated.

Follow up by slowly adding in your flour and working it in the liquid. You want your dough to be slightly sticky to the touch. I use a spatula and hand mix my dough, as a stand mixer always seems to overwork the dough and make it tough. You might not use all the flour, just work in a little at a time until it reaches that slightly sticky texture.

Next place in a greased bowl and cover and let stand for 15 minutes.

Follow up by greasing a cupcake pan really well, and then pull out your dough on a lightly floured surface. Pinch off little balls and place three small balls in each cupcake tin hole. Depending on the size you can get around 10-12 rolls.

Cover again and allow to sit for another 15 minutes. While they rest turn your oven onto 425 degrees.

Take the remaining butter you haven’t use and melt it. Before you put these in the oven baste each roll with butter. Pop in the oven and bake for 9-12 minutes or until the rolls are cooked through.

Once you pull them out baste again with the melted butter, and serve. no knead dinner rolls

 Tips For Making The Perfect Yeast Roll

  • Don’t overmix | If you overmix the dough you will get a really tough and hard dough. This will not result in a light and flaky roll. I recommend skipping the mixer and mixing by hand.
  • Watch flour | Don’t add in too much flour. Do a little flour at a time and watch the texture of the dough. Slightly sticky to the touch, that forms a ball when stirred.
  • Bake Time | As you can see my rolls are not absolutely perfect on being golden brown. The reason is I pulled them a little early so they didn’t overcook and become dry.
