Maple-Oat Dinner Rolls Recipe

Even though I'm in my 80s, I still love to bake for our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. These hearty rolls are one of our favorites.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • 1/2 cup warm strong brewed coffee (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Add the coffee, oats, sugar, syrup, egg, shortening, salt, remaining water and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch down dough. Turn onto a floured surface; divide into four portions. Divide each portion into six pieces; shape each into a ball. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Brush rolls with butter. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen.

"I tried this recipe for a dinner party during the holidays and it was a huge hit. I would make again and love the "Parker House" roll look in the 9x12 pan."

"These are so good. I used my bread machine for the dough and then baked them as instructed. The coffee and maple flavors were so subtle and added so much to the taste. I served them at Thanksgiving and got many compliments."

"I used the dough cycle on the bread machine putting the ingredients in in the order you normally would for a bread machine recipe. I baked the 24 rolls on a cookie sheet and we had them with our Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone loved them. easy (using dough cycle on bread machine) and delicious!!"
