A delicious dinner roll that is made from beer, honey, and a slight pinch of cinnamon. Excellent with turkey, roasts etc. Different beer may be substituted, but be advised that a highly hopped beer will create an astringent bitter taste. The unique taste comes from the malt used in making the beer.

Added Poppy and Sesame seeds on top. Outside came out a little hard but nice and soft on the inside. Not bad but not outstanding either. Read More

I have made this recipe into rolls and also baked it as a loaf in the bread machine. Either way it turns out great and my husband loves it! Read More

I made these for Thanksgiving I found them to be super easy. Using the bread machine cut a lot of time off of it too. My family really enjoyed them but said I should make them smaller next time. Read More

There were absolutely delicious! If I could give it 100 stars I would. I used light beef and left out the cinnamon since I was serving the rolls with beef stew. I did use 12 oz. beer and had to add at least 1/4 cup more flour. I also did not brush the tops with butter due to diet issues. Read More

good rolls made in the bread machine in no time at all. I was in a hurry and skipped the flattening of the beer sparkle: they were ok just as well. They freeze well too. Read More

These turned out perfectly! And it was my first time using my bread machine to make dough so I wasn't sure if I was doing anything wrong. I used MGD for that's all I had. I can see where this would have been better with a darker beer. But since we were going for more of a plain roll it was perfect. I melted the butter with a clove of chopped garlic and spread on top of rolls before baking then sprinkled rosemary and sea salt when they were done. Delicious! Read More
