Homemade Parker House Rolls

Updated: Aug 11, 2023

I was pleasantly surprised that these homemade parker house rolls were so easy to make, and they came out amazing. Golden on the top and fluffy on the inside with a hint of honey. And just like the rolls you buy at the store, they’re perfect for freezing.

Homemade Parker House Rolls


  • 1 1/2 cups milk

  • 1 stick unsalted butter

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1 package active dry yeast

  • 1/2 cup warm water

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 6-7 cups all-purpose flour


  1. In a saucepan, add the milk, butter, sugar, and honey. Stir the mixture on a low heat until dissolved.

  2. Once melted, take off the heat and let cool until lukewarm.

  3. In a small bowl, combine the yeast and warm water. Let sit for 5 minutes.

  4. In a large bowl, add the eggs, salt, yeast mixture, and milk mixture. Using the dough hook attachment on a stand mixer, begin to combine the mixture, gradually adding the flour until the dough forms a ball.

  5. Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and kneed for at least 5 minutes.

  6. Place dough into an oiled bowl, cover, place in a warm place, and let rise for a least an hour.

  7. After the dough has doubled in size, shape rolls on a floured surface.

  8. Place rolls on a parchment paper lined pan, leaving space between each roll to rise. Cover rolls and let sit for an hour.

  9. After the rolls have doubled in size, bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees until the rolls are golden.

  10. Top with butter, and serve while warm.
