Spanish Style Sweet Rolls

Jump to Recipe

What day is it? With the current pandemic, I feel like I’ve been asking myself this question over and over for the last 10 weeks. lol 

Memorial Day Weekend is finally here, though a bit different this year.  This doesn’t mean we can’t bbq! The weather in Maryland is finally changing for the better, warm and sunny.  Finally!

Today I am making Spanish Style Sweet Rolls. These rolls took me right back to my childhood days. Soft, fluffy, delicious… In Spain, we typically eat these rolls with a little bit of butter and ham. Usually jamón dulce, a sweet ham such as honey ham or with the classic Spanish ham- jamón ibérico. Either one is delicious! They are so popular in Spain that almost every bakery sells them. These rolls would also be great as burger buns, or just as they are. My 10-month-old baby loves them. Well, she likes everything I make. lol.  

Ok, lets jump to the recipe!

Course: bread, Breakfast, dinner
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 3 hours 30 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours 40 minutes
Servings: 12 Rolls

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole milk 110F
  • 2 Tbsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 tsp Granulated sugar
  • 2 medium eggs Room temperature
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter Room temperature
  • 4 cups all purpose flour SPOON the flour directly into the measuring cup from the container/bag- DO NOT scoop the flour from the container or bag directly with the measuring cup.
  • 3 to 4 tbsp granulated sugar 
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp melted butter For the Glaze
  • 1 tbsp honey For the Glaze

Instructions

  • Mix the warm milk, yeast and 1 teaspoon of sugar in a bowl or in your stand mixer. Whisk all the ingredients, cover and allow to sit for about 7 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, mix the flour, salt and 3 tablespoons of sugar in a bowl. (If you want the rolls to be sweeter, use 4 tablespoons instead of 3.) 
  • Once the yeast mixture is ready, add the eggs and the butter. Using the dough hook or the paddle attachment, beat on low speed for a few seconds, until all ingredients are combined. 
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, then add 1 cup of the flour mixture. Beat on medium speed for a few seconds, then add another cup of the flour mixture. Repeat with the remaining flour. DO NOT OVERWORK THE DOUGH. This process should take about 2-ish minutes. It will be complete once the dough comes together and pulls away from the side of the bowl. 
  • Knead the dough for 2 more minutes on low – medium speed.
  • At this point the dough will be ready for the first rise. 
  • Grease a large bowl with some olive oil and coat the dough with it. Cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel and let it rise for at least 1 hour or until it doubles in size (it took me 1 hour). 
  • When the dough has doubled in size, punch it down. Divide the dough into 12 pieces and shape each one into a ball. .
  • Cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel and let the rolls rise for 1 hour and preheat the oven to 375F
  • Bake the rolls for about 20 minutes, or until they turn golden brown. 
  • As soon as the rolls are out of the oven, glaze them with butter and honey (or just butter!)
  • Enjoy them and Bon Profit!
     

Notes

These rolls will stay fresh in the fridge for 4 days. I love to warm them up in the microwave for about 15 to 20 seconds.

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
