Biscuit Like Rolls Recipe

No Yeast Roll: 

 

I discovered this recipe years ago when I was desperate for a quick homemade roll. On the way home from church, and way beyond the supermarkets…I realized I had no rolls for the Sunday Roast! That’s a tragedy, y’all. I mean, part of the magic of a Sunday Roast is scooping up all of the gravy with some kind of warm, yummy bread.

No Yeast Rolls

Back at home, panic set in. I ransacked the cabinets and came up empty. With no time to run to the supermarket, I researched a No Yeast dinner roll and found this lifesaver. The kicker is that there’s only five easy to find ingredients. The extra kicker is that this recipe is mixed all in one bowl. No need to mess up two dishes. Oh, happy day!

Now….after a few people have tried this recipe, I have come to the realization that it’s either a “love them or hate them” reaction. Those looking for the flavor and texture of an all-day yeast rising bread are very disappointed and have very strong feelings in their Pinterest comments. Those that are happy to have a more dense bread roll that is very similar to a homemade biscuit and only 20 minutes in the kitchen – have my reaction. They love them. If you are looking for a melt in your mouth, yeast roll flavor, then this is probably not the recipe for you. On the other hand, if you are excited about the bread and want to come back to leave the recipe a rating and a comment, then please, please do!

    Can I use a flat cookie sheet instead of muffin pan?

    • Yes, you can! I actually just tested it out for you. It worked perfectly, and the kids were thrilled to have warm biscuit like rolls for jelly! What a treat. The batter is a cookie dough consistency, so you’ll want to treat the rolls like cookies. Give some space between each spoonful of batter to allow for some spreading. Also, I would suggest using parchment paper, so they don’t stick. If you want the biscuit like rolls to have a uniform look, you’ll want to use a large cookie scoop (one that holds about 2 Tbsp.). If you do less than 2 Tbsp. you’ll want to adjust your baking time accordingly. Otherwise, your rolls will have a crunchy bottom.

    • I don’t see why not if it spreads out a bit though it’s going to make a mess or they going to be more like biscuits instead of rolls

  2. Can the dough be formed into rolls and then frozen? Then thawed and baked at a later date?

    • I don’t see why not. 🙂 Form it into rolls, like you mentioned. You can freeze the dough balls placing them a little ways away from each other on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Then, place the frozen dough balls into a freezer bag. You can freeze them for months this way. When you are ready, take the dough balls out and place them, while they are still frozen, into muffin tins. Let them thaw and warm up to room temperature before baking.

    I was excited to find your recipe but I must have done something wrong. I followed the recipe and it is not cookie dough consistency. They are heavy and strong flour taste.

    Do I just use all-purpose flour?

    5 Stars! I have made this recipe 2 times and it is very good! I have shared this website with some of my friends, also. This is a recipe every beginner baker should try, they would be pleased with the biscuits and continue to bake, for themselves or their family.

    • Oh my goodness…What an amazing comment to wake up to! I actually really needed that, today. Thank you so much for coming back to share your experience with the recipe. I’m so glad that you are enjoying it and that it’s been a success! Thank you so much for sharing the site, as well. I’m so incredibly grateful to you for sharing. Have a wonderful day.

  6. Made the recipe and they turned out very dense, I feel like they dough would make excellent bread sticks. Not quite what I wanted for a dinner roll though

    • Yes…It is dense. It really reminds me of a biscuit. It’s a nice substitute when you have no time to let the yeast do its thing. If you are looking for a delicious, melt in your mouth, yeast type roll – then this is probably not the right recipe.

      • This recipe was amazing! I wanted to make a nice meal for my family and my littles love rolls! I have never attempted homemade rolls before and realized I had no yeast in the house. That is when I found this recipe and it did not disappoint! Adults and kids all enjoyed it and it paired wonderfully with the roast I made!The best part is how easy and quick it was! I will definitely be making this again.

        • Aww…You have no idea how much I love hearing this! I love that it turned out for you. Thank you so much for commenting and the 5 stars! Yay!

    Just finished a batch drizzled a touch of honey on the top & they are great! Might add raisins the next time but love the basic ‘re pie!. Thanks

    • Oh my goodness. This makes me so happy and hungry at the same time! I love biscuits and honey. Yum!

      • Reduced salt to 1/2 tsp, used self raising flour (because thats all I had) and still added baking powder. The biscuits turned out very light when compared to a regular biscuits.

        • Thank you for sharing the substitution. I’m sure most people, at this point, are running out of All-Purpose flour.
