Milk Kefir Sweet Rolls

Very similar to King’s Hawaiian rolls, these sweet rolls are a great addition to breakfast, lunch or dinner.
This versatile dough can also be made into loaves and toasted if you prefer.

This yields 2 loaves of bread or 18-24 70g rolls.

  1. 6 cups flour
  2. 4 eggs
  3. ¾-1 cup milk kefir
  4. 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  5. 1 cup sugar
  6. ½ tsp salt
  1. 2 teaspoons dry active yeast
  2. 1 tablespoon sugar
  3. ¼ cup lukewarm water
  1. Stir together the yeast, water and tablespoon of sugar in a cup and let stand 10 minutes to ensure your yeast is active.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the sugary yeast water, milk kefir, butter, sugar and eggs. Once combined add the salt and flour, knead 4-5 minutes with a mixer or 10-12 minutes by hand.
  3. Cover and let rise until doubled, around 2-4 hours depending on the temperature of your home.
  4. Once doubled, place the dough onto a well floured surface and rolls into buns. 70-100 grams in size depending on how large you like your rolls.
  5. Cover and let rise again until doubled. Bake on the center rack of a 375° ;Fahrenheit oven for approximately 24-30 minutes until the tops are golden.
  1. This recipe can also be used to make 2 loaves of bread instead of the rolls.
  2. To get a nice sheen on your rolls, brush the warm rolls right out of the oven with some butter.

  1. These look delicious! I could definitely see myself serving this with a meal at dinner for my family! The probiotics in the kefir are cooked away when it is baked, correct?

    • Yes, the probiotics do not survive the baking process. However if you have extra or even extra sour kefir that may be hard to eat otherwise, it is definitely a tasty way to use the kefir!

  2. This might be a dumb question but is it 1 3/4 cups of milk kefir or 3/4 up to 1 cup of milk kefir? I have never seen it written that way and don’t want to put in the wrong amount.
