Whole wheat dinner rolls
Bake your own yeasty, buttery and golden Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls. I don’t know about you but I am a huge fan of home-made breads and rolls alike. Even if you have not tried baking bread before, this recipe is so easy to make that you will absolutely love the end result.
This rolls are the perfect size for any dinner table.
2-1/2 tsp. active dry yeast
1-3/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
1 Tbsp. sugar
3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. salt
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1-1/2 to 2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in 1/4 of warm water; set aside until foamy. This will ensure that yeast is active and ready to use.
Place foamed yeast into a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining water, egg, oil, salt and the whole wheat flour. Beat all together (on low speed) until smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose flour (on low speed, so you don’t have flour dust everywhere) to form a soft dough.
Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, for about 5-6 minutes.
Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover bowl with a plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Punch dough down onto a lightly floured surface; divide into two. Divide each piece into 12 small pieces and shape them into balls. Place them 1 inch apart onto a large, greased baking sheets.
Cover pan with a kitchen towel and let rise until doubled, for about 30 minutes.
Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until browned.
Remove from oven and brush each with melted butter. Remove rolls to a cooling rack.
Makes: 24 rolls
