Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: American
Serves: 14 rolls
  • 1½ cups + 2 cups (or as needed) bread flour, divided
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 (.25-ounce) package dry active yeast (2¼ teaspoons)
  • 1¼ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage, warmed
  • ½ cup oil, plus additional for the tops
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the 1½ cups flour, sugar, yeast, salt, and baking soda.
  2. Add the milk beverage, ½ cup oil, water, and vinegar, and beat until combined.
  3. Stir in enough of the remaining 2 cups flour to form a soft dough.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes.
  5. Cover the dough and let it rise in a warm spot for 1 hour or more.
  6. Punch the dough down, and roll it out to ½-inch thickness. Cut into biscuit shapes with a 2½-inch biscuit cutter. Bring scraps together, reroll, and cut to use up the rest of the dough.
  7. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, cover, and let rise for 15 to 30 minutes.
  8. Preheat your oven to 400ºF.
  9. Optionally spray the tops of the rolls with oil.
  10. Bake the rolls for 15 to 17 minutes, or until golden.
