Easy Yoghurt Bread Rolls

Yoghurt Bread Rolls

I have been making these Easy Yoghurt Bread Rolls for good few years now and they never disappoint. I usually go through phases with these, making them almost every day only to stop for a while. Too much of a good thing I guess. 🙂

The great thing about these rolls is that they are oh so light and delicious. They also keep their freshness for good couple of days. This way you can enjoy them for longer although in our house they are usually gone the day they’re baked!

In case you don’t eat a lot of bread, they also freeze well. Simply take them out of the freezer couple of hours before you need them and they will thaw nicely in room temperature. If you are in a hurry, simply slice them in half before freezing and pop in your toaster straight from the freezer for delicious and quick brekkie/lunch.

These soft and almost sweet tasting rolls are perfect as part of your weekend breakfast. They go oh so beautifully well with jam and honey but also simply buttered with the side of scrambled eggs and a slice of smoked salmon. You know my choice of Sunday brekkie now. 🙂 Any filling sweet or savoury goes well with these Easy Yoghurt Bread Rolls so don’t let your imagination stop there and use whatever you fancy.

Yoghurt Bread Rolls

Easy Yoghurt Bread Rolls

Yield: 12 rolls


  • 500g bread flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar (caster or granulated)
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 7g (1 sachet) dried yeast
  • 200g natural yoghurt (regular type or Greek)
  • 120 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 60g unsalted butter (softened)
  • Additionally you will need 1 egg (lightly beaten) for brushing your rolls with before baking and seeds of your choice (sesame, pumpkin, poppy etc.).


  1. All ingredients should be at room temperature. Milk should be ever so slightly warmed up in the microwave as that will help to activate the yeast.
  2. Put all ingredients in the bowl of your food processor. Make sure you put yeast and sugar on a different side of the bowl to salt initially as salt "kills" the yeast.
  3. Knead using the hook attachment of your food processor or by hand until the dough is springy to the touch and no longer sticky. You shouldn't have to add any more flour but if you do make sure it is very little if you don't want your rolls to come out heavy.
  4. Place your dough in a bowl, cover with clean tea towel and let it prove (rest) until it doubled in size (approx 1.5hrs)
  5. Deflate proved dough with a good punch and divide it into 12 roughly equal pieces.
  6. Shape into rolls and place on prepared baking sheet or two lined with baking paper.
  7. Cover with clean tea towel again and let the rolls rest to plump up a bit for about 40 minutes.
  8. Preheat the oven to 200C.
  9. Once rolls had their second prove, brush them gently with beaten egg and sprinkle your seeds of choice.
  10. Bake for 12-15 minutes until nice and brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  11. Let them cool and enjoy with your choice of filling!

If you are into baking why not trying some of my super tasty and really easy sweet bakes like this Wholesome Banana Bread or perhaps slightly different Nutty Pumpkin & Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips? They are consistently popular in our house and also on the blog. 🙂

      Thank you Jenny 🙂 They are gorgeous and even smell of yoghurt. My boys really love them especially when they are still warm, with a little bit of butter 🙂 Simples 😉

    Ooooh these rolls look perfect! I adore homemade bread but find I cannot stop eating it which is not great for the diet! I would definitely like a few of these when warm with melting butter on! Thank you for sharing with #CookBlogShare x

      Thank you Kirsty 😊 I know what you mean, freshly baked rolls and butter are hard to resist and these are worth the diet sin if I can say so myself 😀 x

    I love that you have incorporated yogurt into the dough recipe for your rolls Jo, and they seem to easy to make which I love too. I bet they were so good to eat when served warm!

    These look so good Jo – i love the sheen that you’ve got on them from the beaten egg. I love making home made bread (the smell is amazing isn’t it) but I have to admit that i’ve not made any for a while for one reason & another. But these really are tempting me to get the bread flour and yest out of the cupboard.

      Thanks Julie 🙂 It does make all the difference plus I believe it keeps them fresher for longer too! If they last that is 😉

    These rolls look delicious! I do think nothing beats homemade bread and I also go through phases of making a lot of it and then none at all for months. Thank you so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice.

      Thank you lovely lady! It’s funny isn’t it? That bread baking inactivity and then the spurt of baking the same thing over and over again only to get tired of it again. That’s the sign of passionate home baker I say! 🙂
