Cake Mix Rolls

I’m a sucker for a good roll! They go along with so many dishes, and they’re just so…deliciously satisfying. I especially love how these Cake Mix Rolls have not only the perfect, soft texture like a roll should, but they also aren’t really sweet, so you can serve them alongside anything! Originally shared a few years ago, but resharing since this is a perfect dinner roll recipe for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any meal!

This is our current situation: we just moved here in January, and are building a house. While that’s happening, we’re living in a small apartment with a one-person-only-or-your-bumping-each-other kitchen. As such, we don’t have visitors/family over very often. Or at all, I guess! My wonderful uncle and aunt, that don’t live terribly far (and on the same street our house is being built on), who live closer to our church building, have made it a habit of inviting us over for dinner after church on Sundays. I can’t tell you how WONDERFUL this is!!! I not only love it because 1. we get to see them and spend time (they have a new baby about 4 months old, and she’s so cute!) and 2. we don’t have to wait longer to eat dinner, but also 3. I get to try out fun new things to bring to go along with dinner, whether a side dish or dessert. LOVE IT!!!

We were having chicken enchiladas one week, and I decided that some rolls would be a great accompaniment. Problem was, I’d never made rolls in my life! I found this amazing recipe on Sugar N’ Spice Gals, and automatically thought ‘Rolls with cake mix…..who could resist that?!’ They turned out so delicious, there was a small discussion over who got the last roll (Wonder Woman ended up with it, I think because she did the cute guilty look thing)!

Cake Mix Rolls / The perfect dinner roll recipe for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any meal! This is a super easy roll recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup Yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 tbsp. Active dry yeast (or one .25 oz. packet)
  • 1 1/2 cups Warm water
  • 3 1/4 cups Flour, plus some for dusting
  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted (for brushing)
  • Oil, for brushing

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix the yeast into the warm water and let it stand about 10 minutes. Add the flour and cake mix and mix until well combined. Spread some flour on a counter or board, then knead the dough until no longer sticky. Add more flour if necessary. Cake Mix Rolls / The perfect dinner roll recipe for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any meal! This is a super easy roll recipe!
  2. Lightly oil a large bowl, and place the dough ball in. Roll it around until all sides are covered with oil. Cover with a wet towel (paper towel is fine) and let rise for about an hour, or until it’s double in size. Cake Mix Rolls / The perfect dinner roll recipe for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any meal!

  3. Place on board and roll into a large rectangle. (I realized our rolling pin was still packed away in storage, but made it work with a cup). Cut rectangles into about 2″ x 4″ pieces. Brush each piece with butter, then roll up short end to short end. Pinch the seam to help it stay closed, then place seam-side down on sprayed baking sheet. Cake Mix Rolls / The perfect dinner roll recipe for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any meal!

  4. Cover with a wet towel (again, paper towels work great) and let rise for about 30 minutes, or until double in size.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Brush tops with more butter and ENJOY!!!

Makes about 1-2 dozen
