You can’t get a recipe any easier than this one!  These little rolls are so quick to make and they are good, too.

2 cups self-rising flour
4 tablespoons mayonnaise or Miracle Whip salad dressing (can use either)
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon sugar
Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl about two minutes with a spoon.  Spray muffin tins.  Fill tins 2/3 full; bake in preheated 450 degree oven until golden brown or about 10 to 12 minutes.  Makes about 12 muffins.  Delicious!  Enjoy!

  1. When I was a teenager I learned to make these in home ec class. We put half the batter in the muffin tin, then added a teaspoon of jam or jelly and covered with the other half of the batter. Great for breakfast.

  2. Do these have to be refrigerated

  3. Just did these… Amazing!! Next time would omit sugar and put some salt however! Thanks for sharing :)

  11. Sounds awesome! Going to make them right now.

  12. I’m always looking for a great roll/biscuit/muffin to go w/meals and since this is so quick & easy, I’ve GOT to try it! thanks so much!

  13. I’ve made these rolls for years, I love adding a little cinnamon an extra teaspoon of sugar and after they are baked drizzle with a little powdered sugar glaze, nice sweet treat but not to sweet, I have also added chopped nuts very nice.

  14. These are amazing! So quick and easy, these will be my go to biscuit/bread from now on. This recipe is going to be a huge help to me!.

  15. Just wanted to let you know that I have made these several times now for my family and everyone loves them. Thank you for the recipe! I have even changed it up a bit and used miracle whip when I didn’t have mayo, and also added cheese and garlic instead of any sugar. They have turned out so delicious that my boys fight over them. Thanks again for sharing such an easy and delicious recipe!

  16. So good and easy! Thanks for the recipe

  17. I made these tonight & thought they were really good! Next time I make them I’m gonna use Miracle Whip & I’ll let u know how they come out….Thanks for the recipe…..it’s a keeper!

  18. Angel biscuits is what my grandmother used to call them

  19. If you don’t have self-rising flour, I don’t @ the moment, than I read you can make your own w/all-purpose flour to use in this recipe: http://southernfood.about.com/cs/breads/ht/self_rise_flour.htm, so I’m gonna try making my own self-rising flour for this recipe. Ty for sharing Judy, the rolls will be a yummy and easy side for Thanksgiving dinner.

    • Special Update: Don’t use the substituent for self-rising flour in my post above, makes the recipe just awful and bitter cuz of the baking powder, follow Judy’s recipe exactly. I’m gonna buy some self-rising flour and make the rolls the correct way next time. Again, ty you, Judy!

  20. i am confused with oven temperature/?. i am from south africa. can i bake them at 180 or 225 degrees//

  21. We had a recipe like this back home, North Carolina , we called it Mayonnaise Muffins — Was the first bread I ever made , that was in the 70’s , I haven’t made them in a long time . Can’t remember sugar being in our recipe , They look good !

  22. When I make rolls or bread I always use my Mom’s recipes with yeast! Will definitely have to give these a try! Nothing like homemade bread!!

  23. Hello, I just wanted to ask before trying whether these rolls are hard or soft crusted….other than the query, they look mouthwatering!

    • Hi Annie, Thanks for coming by. They are kind of like a biscuit. They are not hard. We love them and I make them about twice a week. If we are doing something on the grill, I make these while the meat is on. So easy and quick.

  24. hi, if dont use self raisaing flour, do we need to put yeast or baking powder? Den plz tell me da quantity, thanks

    • Hi Sara, You can substitute 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt with 2 cups of all-purpose flour for the self rising flour. Do not use yeast. Hope this helps and thanks for your question. Judy

  25. This is a wonderful recipe. We have a 22 month old grandson who likes to eat these fresh out of the oven – mmmmmm yummy is what he tells us. Easiest recipe for rolls ever. Thank you for sharing!!!

  26. That’s so interesting, I’ve never heard of mayo in dough. What does it do for the texture? We live in the South too and they make wonderful yeast rolls at a lot of places. Still haven’t tried them. Always, love visiting your blog.

    • The texture is not as light as a yeast roll but they are really good.

    • I’ve been making these for years and they are very good. The mayonnaise does the same thing as pure lard or crisco. The rolls come out nice and fluffy,if you don’t stir way to much.
      Just mix until all ingredients are wet.
