One-Bite Dinner Roll

One-bite dinner roll

Here is a recipe that made my husband laughed so loud, a one-bite dinner roll. I always make them bigger like a normal size bun. But this time around my husband suggested a little change of routine, to make a mini version of dinner roll. And he was going to eat only one per meal… as a joke. We ate like one row instead.

Although it may seem silly, these one-bite dinner rolls taste as good as their bigger counterparts. They can also be easily pulled-apart and dipped into a fruit jam or chocolate spread.

One-Bite Dinner Roll
Course Breakfast, Side Dish
Servings 1 8-inch (20 cm) square pan


  • 120 ml milk
  • 30 ml water
  • 28 g unsalted butter
  • 260 g all-purpose flour
  • 26 g granulated white sugar
  • 1 ¼ tsp instant yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 25 g egg room temperature


  • Whisk all dry ingredients in a bowl until combined.
  • Combine milk, water, and butter chunks, then heat until warm (warm enough to activate the yeast).
  • Pour heated mixture into the center of the dry mixture. Using a silicone spatula, wooden spoon, or our hand, mix until they come together forming a ball.
  • Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until it becomes smooth, elastic, and not sticky (10-15 minutes). Flour our hands and sprinkle little flour onto the dough if it is too sticky and difficult to knead. The more we knead, the less sticky it will become.
  • Round up the dough and place it in a greased medium bowl. Cover with a damp towel and let it rest in a warm area until doubled in size (about an hour).
  • Knead the dough for another minute. Release all of the air inside.
  • Portion out the dough and place them in a greased pan. I did 10g for each mini roll. Cover and let them relax for another 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°F or 180°C.
  • Brush the top with egg wash. Sprinkle some sesame seeds (optional). Bake for 20-25 minutes.
