Homemade Hot Roll Mix


About 3-4 cups of this Homemade Hot Roll Mix can be substituted for the commercial blend. You must add 1 package of instant blend dry yeast to the recipe along with the mix every time you use it. Note: This is a mix, not a bread recipe. Use it in recipes that call for a Hot Roll Mix.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: Makes about 22 cups Hot Roll Mix


  • 5 pounds flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1-1/2 cups instant nonfat dry milk powder


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine thoroughly. Place in a large airtight container and label with date, contents, and instructions. Store in a dark, cool dry place and use within 6 months.

Use in place of commercial hot roll mix, adding yeast to the recipe as specified. For most recipes, you'll use about 3-4 cups of this mix; add one package instant blend dry yeast. Start with the smaller amount of mix and add enough to form a soft or firm dough, according to the recipe.
