Dinner Rolls

Rating: 3.5 stars 1119
These warm, buttery rolls only take a little hands-on prep (the yeast does all the work), kids love to help shape them, and they fill the house with a delicious aroma. Even better, the same dough can be used for Cinnamon-Nut Buns.

Chocolate Cinnamon-Swirl Bread

Rating: 5 stars 2
End brunch on a sweet note by slicing into a loaf of this rich, babka-inspired swirl bread. Enriching the yeasted dough with eggs and milk produces a super tender crumb once baked, but not before becoming the canvas for a cinnamon-spiked chocolate filling. To make sure the filling is infused into every pillowy bite, the dough is braided together before being placed in the loaf pan to proof and then bake.
