Serves: 14 rolls

  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 cup warm unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk beverage
  • 3-1/2 cups bread flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 oz or 2-1/4 teaspoons) quick-rise yeast
  • 1-1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons warm water

  • Dairy-free margarine, for serving

  1. In a measuring cup place 1 tablespoon vinegar and fill up to 1 cup line with the almond or
  2. coconut milk.
  3. Heat in microwave for about 40 seconds.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, salt, and baking soda.
  5. Add the milk and vinegar mixture, oil and water; beat until moistened.
  6. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  7. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes.
  8. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  9. Preheat your oven to 400ºF.
  10. Roll out to a ½-inch thickness; cut with a 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter.
  11. Place on a greased baking sheet.
  12. Spray tops with a small amount of cooking spray to help them turn golden brown while baking.
  13. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden.
  14. Serve with dairy-free margarine.

You can also use this amazing dough as a crust for savory dishes or appetizers; or as a substitute for crescent rolls!

    Sorry, but many of these recipes don’t look like they have been made in a test kitchen (ie by anyone other than the entrant). These rolls look sad, like biscuits that didn’t rise.

      Hi Andrea, this is an entry in a recipe contest. If you would like recipes from my test kitchen, see these recipes:

      In terms of the rise on these dinner rolls (they aren’t biscuits) the author chose to do a quick rise. You can let them rise for longer (30 minutes to an hour) and do a double rising, if you would like fluffier, taller rolls.
