Prep Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Servings: 2 people


  • Oven


  • 7 g Yeast Instant Yeast
  • 120 g Water
  • 20 g White sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt Table salt
  • 50 g Milk powder ( Dry powder)
  • 1 Egg
  • 250 g All- purpose flour
  • 50 g Butter


  • 1 tbsp Melted Butter (Melt in Microwave)


  • Add the yeast, sugar, water in a small bowl and mix well and leave aside for 10 mins until it froths
  • Place flour, salt, milk powder, butter and egg, mix well using a rubber spatula or spoon
  • Once the yeast has froth, then add the yeast mixture into the flour and mix it with a rubber spatula until fully incorporated
  • Add oil to the work surface and transfer the dough on to the surface and knead for about 10-15 minutes ( If you have a stand mixer with the dough hook, then use the dough hook which will help to knead the dough easily)
  • Brush a bowl with oil and place the kneaded dough inside, cover with a cling wrap and let it rest and double in size in a warm area. ( Note: it may take longer than a usual dough as it is a very sticky and has a high moisture content. The resting time will depend on the humidity and temperature
  • Once doubled in size knock the air out by punching the dough and cut it into 6 equal pieces
  • Using your palm in a circular motion, make smooth balls by pressing it downwards and rotating it in one place
  • Place them on a tray leaving small gaps in between and cover. Let it rise for the second time in a warm area until doubled in size ( you don't need to leave it for a long time, this will take half the amount of time it took for the first rise )
  • Preheat your oven to 175 Degrees (conventional)
  • Once the dough has risen ( It may touch each other on the tray) egg wash the top just before putting it in the oven
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes in the middle rack of the oven until the top has a beautiful golden brown colour
  • Serve it warm or cold


You cannot substitute milk powder, as this will affect the quality of the dinner roll
