    I’m making these tonight!

  2. Best rolls on the internet!! Seriously, I make them all the time. They are my go to dinner roll.5 stars

  3. Christy hansen says:

    I want to make some of these today november 6th
    Thanksgiving is 3 weeks away
    I want to freeze them until then
    Do these rolls freeze well
    If so how do i reheat them
    In the oven and on what temperature ?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Hi Christy, I have not tried freezing these rolls. They are so easy to make, I always just make them and they are always gone with none to freeze. I would think they could be frozen and just reheated in the oven like any frozen bread. Maybe on 350 degrees for 15 minutes or so.

  4. I really enjoyed making these rolls. This will be a go-to recipe for me. Thanks for sharing! Billie5 stars

  5. Holy cow in to the recipe box it goes

  6. I love making mayonnaise rolls and have no problem with any of the ingredients. However, I am trying to come up with easy, tasty bread ideas for a friend who can’t have gluten, soy, yeast, milk or mayonnaise (among many other restrictions). I have gluten-free flour and can use baking powder (for the self rising flour) and use rice milk, but what can I use for the mayonnaise? I was thinking about coconut oil. Do you have any ideas?

    I posted this twice earlier and it showed it was awaiting moderation, and now I don’t see it. Please delete any duplicates that post.

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I have never tried it that way Linda but it might work since the mayo just takes the place of the oil in this recipe. If you try it and it works, please let us know. Thank you.

  7. I made these last night and they were fabulous. I live in France and can’t always find all the ingredients for a recipe but I had everything for these. With French self rising flour I need to add a little extra baking powder and I forgot so mine not quite as lite but still very good. My husband loved them. This recipe is a keeper. I know I will make them again and remember a little extra baking powder next time. Thank you so much.

    • The Southern Lady says:

      So glad these rolls turned out so well for you Rhonda! So nice to have a follower from France. Have a wonderful week!

  8. These rolls are awesome!! I just got through cooking them, I must admit I did leave out a 1/4 cup of milk and added buttermilk to them.. These are FABULOUS!!!!

  9. I made these tonight, only I added a bit of cheddar cheese to the batter, and I sprinkled some cheddar on top. They were really moist, soft, and delicious. I left out the sugar.

  10. I am going to make these rolls tonight. I make a mayonnaise cake (white and chocolate) and it turns out beautiful so I can imagation these rolls. Maybe my grandkids will not call them hockey pucks. Lol

  11. 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.

  12. Reda Copeland says:

    Do these have to be refrigerated

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

  14. Can you use buttermilk in the recipe? If so, how much?

  15. I made these and they are awesome.

  16. i made these tonight they turned out great. i did add a handful of cheese to mine.

  17. Lynn Swearingen says:

    These are so delicious hot out of the oven with butter! My family loves them & I love how easy they are!

  18. My Mom wasn’t a really good cook but she made these often and they were always yummy! I did know the exact ingredients or measurements but now I will surely try them, good memories!! Thanks 🙂

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

  20. 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!

  21. 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.

  22. 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!.

  23. 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!

  24. So good and easy! Thanks for the recipe

  25. Karen Snyder says:

    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!

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

  27. 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!

  28. 225 would be just about right…..that would compare to 425 in the United States. They may have to bake just a little longer.

    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 !

  30. 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!!

  31. 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.

  32. 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

  33. 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!!!

  34. 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.
