  • 3½ to 4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Instant Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine 3 cups of the flour, sugar, Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Instant Yeast, garlic powder and salt.
  2. Place the milk, water, and ¼ cup of butter in a microwave safe bowl and heat until very warm (120° to 130°F). Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients and beat for 2 minutes at medium speed with an electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.
  3. Add the egg and an additional ½ cup of the flour. Beat for 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour (up to ½ cup) to make a soft dough.
  4. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. (Or, if desired, place dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and allow it to rest in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours.)
  5. Prepare a 9-inch springform pan by greasing with butter and adding a circle of parchment paper on the bottom. Place a 4-ounce ramekin in the center of the pan and grease with butter.
  6. Divide the dough into golf-ball sized balls. Arrange in rows ¼ inch apart in the prepared pan, allowing room to expand. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
  7. Once rolls have risen, preheat the oven to 400°F. Bake the rolls for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and hollow sounding when you tap on the bottom of a roll. Serve warm and enjoy!


If you do not have a 9-inch springform pan, you can also bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet using a 4-ounce ramekin in the center, and arrange the dough around the ramekin in a ring.
