This super soft sourdough dinner roll recipe is absolutely delicious and perfect for satiating your cravings. The glorious pull of exposing a fluffy interior is what makes your efforts worthwhile.

  • Total Time: 16 hrs 35 mins
  • Yield: 16 rolls 1x


  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup active sourdough starter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup softened butter


  1. Add the milk to a large bowl, then add the starter and whisk to combine. Then whisk in the eggs until well incorporated. Place the butter into the bowl, and pinch to combine with the batter.
  2. Add the bread flour and all-purpose flour, sugar, and salt to the bow. Use a wooden spoon, spatula, or your hands to mix, ensuring that the flour is well incorporated. You should be left with shaggy dough.
  3. Cover the dough with a tea towel, and perform 3 sets of stretches and folds over the next hour, at every 20-minute interval.
  4. Place a slightly damp tea towel, and a large plate over your bowl, then set this aside to rise at room temperature for 8 hours or overnight.
  5. If your home is quite warm, then it should take less than 8 hours.
  6. Refrigerate the dough for 2 hours before shaping. Cold dough is much easier to shape.
  7. Dust a work surface with flour, and transfer the proofed dough on to it.
  8. Divide the dough into 16 pieces.
  9. Grease a large baking dish with butter and set this aside.
  10. Take each piece of dough and stretch and fold each piece as you had done with the dough beforehand.
  11. Coat one side of the dough in flour, then stretch one edge, and fold it into the middle of the piece. Rotate and repeat until you have a nice dough ball.
  12. Place the ball onto a clean surface, and use your hands to rotate the ball. Repeat with the rest of the rolls, as this will help create a tough skin so that the dough remains in shape when rising and baking.
  13. Cover the rolls with a tea towel and set them aside for bulk fermentation at room temperature for 2-3 hours, or until they have doubled in size.
  14. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and place your rolls into the oven.
  15. Bake your sourdough rolls for 25-30 minutes or until they’re a wonderful golden brown.
  16. Remove them from the oven and carefully coat the tops with lots of melted butter. This helps soften the baked rolls and adds a wonderful buttery flavor to each moistened dinner roll.
  17. Cool them for at least 10 minutes before serving.
