Quick Blender Light Rolls

My family loves bread. When I was little, my mom would make our sandwiches for lunch with homemade bread, and I remember being embarrassed at lunchtime at school because everyone else had store bought white bread. Of course as an adult, I realize how much yummier homemade is compared to store bought, and how silly I was to be self conscious of my thick crusty homemade bread. My mother makes the BEST fluffiest light rolls too, even way better than I do when I use the same recipe. I have posted them before here. That recipe is great for when you have extra time to devote to making them, but when I saw this quick blender recipe in Taste of Homes Holiday 2008 Thanksgiving edition, I wanted to try it to see if it would be a good fast alternative recipe. They turned out beautiful and delicious and no kneading or shaping is involved.

In a bowl combine:
3 1/4 c flour
1 tsp. salt
Then pour the ingredients from the blender into the flour mixture and stir till everything is combined.

You don’t have to knead it, just cover with a towel at this point, put it in a warm, non drafty spot and let raise for 30 minutes.

Divide dough among 12 greased muffin cups, just dropping it in with a spoon.
Cover again with a towel and let raise for another 30 minutes.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes till golden.
Take them out of the pan to cool on a clean towel (or wire rack) so they won’t continue to brown.

  9. Hi Margo,

    I’m visiting from the “It’s a Cinch” party and I love the idea of making rolls by using a muffin pan πŸ™‚ Have you ever tried whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour with this recipe? Just wondering … I’m going to try that myself. I love cooking too and blog about that myself sometimes. I’m your newest Follower.

  14. You had me at bread! I’m convinced I could live on bread and butter alone.

    This looks like a great recipe I can make with my girls!

    My hubs used to walk home when he was in elementary school and his grand mom would make him a huge home cooked Italian meal. The other kids had peanut butter sandwiches and he had pasta and meatballs and a huge salad and rolls…

    He wasn’t embarrassed – he knew he had it made even back then!

    So glad you joined our cinch party.

  15. Thank you so much for this! I would love to make homemade bread, but so often, I read a recipe and it says something like, “Put it in your mixer with a dough hook.” Or to “Put it in your bread machine.” Well I have no mixer, let alone a dough hook, and I have no bread machine and I always felt like there was no way I could make homemade bread. I mean, I know I can do it back like the old days, but I don’t have a baking instinct – I need someone to tell me how to do it. So thank you for this recipe because guess what! I have a blender. So this is totally doable.

  16. Hi! I making these rolls today. After the first rise, I noticed the dough was very sticky. I’m not very good at baking bread. The stickiness doesn’t seem right. I added some flour and placed in muffin tray for second rise. Keep my fingers crossed and wondering about the sticky dough. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
