Cafeteria Lady Rolls

Eating Cafeteria Lady Rolls is just like stepping back into the school cafeteria.

Cafeteria Lady Rolls


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons yeast
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted shortening (may use butter)
  • 1 3/4 cups warm milk


  1. Add yeast to warm milk and let sit 1 minute.
  2. Stir and add melted shortening.
  3. Have dry ingredients ready and add to milk. Slowly mix on medium speed until the dough no longer sticks to the side of the bowl.
  4. Place dough in a well-greased bowl and let rise until doubled in bulk.
  5. Stir down and form into rolls (note that dough is sticky) and let them rise again.
  6. Bake at 425 degrees F until brown, and brush with butter while hot.
