This recipe turns out great homemade rolls for those who love 100% whole wheat bread. They rose beautifully and plump in the oven. Makes 20-25 rolls depending on how big you make them. I made 2 inch dough balls and they rose to 3 inches after baked. To make more rolls just make the dough balls smaller.
- Dissolve yeast in water and honey for about 5 minutes.
- Combine honey, olive oil, eggs, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
- Slowly add Flour and knead until it loosens from sides of the bowl.
- Place in large oiled bowl, cover and let rise until about double. About one hour, be sure it is in a warm place.
- Punch down and remove Dough.
- Shape dough into rolls about 2 inch in diameter.
- Place on an oiled or non stick baking sheet, cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
- Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Bake at about 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or until browned.
These is a five star recipe and that is it.
Simple and delicious. Following a suggestion below I made mine as cloverleaf dinner rolls and they were perfect. Great recipe. I did use whole wheat pastry flour and substituted 2 T ground flaxseed plus 6 T water for the eggs. Still worked beautifully.
This is an excellent recipe! I loved how light and fluffy they were. I cut the recipe in half, and made 12 good sized rolls. The only thing I didn't cut in half was the honey, because I like my rolls a little sweeter. I was a bit worried, because they didn't rise very quickly, but they turned out fabulously in the end. Yummy!
