Golden Honey Pan Rolls Recipe

Golden Honey Pan Rolls Recipe

A cousin in North Carolina gave me the recipe for these delicious honey-glazed rolls. Using my bread machine to make the dough saves me about 2 hours compared to the traditional method. The rich, buttery taste of these rolls is so popular with family and friends that I usually make two batches so I have enough! -Sara Wing, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 1 cup warm 2% milk (70° to 80°)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 egg white
  • Additional honey, optional


  • 1. In bread machine pan, place the first eight ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed.)
  • 2. When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Punch down; cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Divide into 24 pieces; shape each into a ball. Place 12 balls each in two greased 8-in. square baking pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 3. For glaze, combine the sugar, butter, honey and egg white; drizzle over dough. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with additional honey if desired. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: We recommend you do not use a bread machine's time-delay feature for this recipe.

"These rolls live up to their billing. They look fantastic and so appetizing. I made them for Easter dinner and everyone grabbed them before eating anything else. To make them even easier, try using the small frozen dinner rolls made by Rhodes. The only thing you have to remember is to give them about 3-4 hrs to defrost."

"These rolls were delicious. I made them for Christmas dinner & we enjoyed them. My only reservation is that the glaze was waaaay too sweet & sticky for our taste - and I only used half of what I made! I look forward to enjoying them without the glaze next time."

"These were absolutely the best rolls I have ever made. I don't have a bread machine, so I combined all the liquids (minus the eggs) and brought to 120* in a saucepan. I then combined 2 cups flour with the yeast, and stirred in the warm mixture. Then I added the remaining flour and let my dough hook go at it for about 8 minutes. I let it rise, and then shaped as the recipe said.

I only glazed half the rolls, as my hubby and I were unsure what that would be like. My only regret is not glazing all of them!! These were divine! My go-to roll for sure from now on."

"These are fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! I made these for a member of my husband's family when her husband died and the next day when we went through the receiving line, everybody was passing the word down the line that I was the one who had made the rolls. I was asked by four or five people for the recipe. Everybody loved them! They're particularly good with ham because of their sweetness."
