Mexican Dinner Rolls (Bolillos)


  • 500 g unbleached all-purpose white flour (3 cups + 2 Tbsp)
  • 10 g dry active yeast (1.5 tsp)
  • 10 g Salt (1 tsp)
  • 10 g sugar (1 tsp)
  • 300 ml 110F hot water (43C, 1 1/4 cup)


  1. Add dry ingredients to the bowl of your stand mixer and whisk on low until well combined.
  2. Add hot water (I use the hottest water out of my faucet, as soon as it starts getting too hot for me to keep my hand under the hot running water, that tends to be just right).
  3. Attach the dough hook to the stand mixer and knead the dough for about 15 minutes on low.
