At long last, here is that recipe that I promised earlier for these:
1 1/3 cups warm water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
2 packages or 2 Tablespoons yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups bread flour
- Combine warm water, oil, honey and yeast in a large bowl. Cover with kitchen towel and let stand for 15 minutes.
- Add salt and beaten egg to yeast mixture. Mix vigorously, using a wooden spoon. Add flour gradually, stirring until well blended.
- Turn dough onto floured surface (such as a counter top). Use about 1/2 cup bread flour on the table and lightly flour hands. Knead dough with hands until it is smooth and elastic in feel and appearance, about 5 minutes.
- Roll out dough on the floured surface using a rolling pin or pat it out with your hands, to about 1/2-inch thickness. Rolls may be cut into any shape desired. (I used a round 2-inch biscuit cutter).
- Place on baking sheet or in a cake pan lightly coated with vegetable spray, sides of rolls touching.
- Let rise in warm place (such as top of stove) for 10 minutes.
- Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until brown. These needed only 10 minutes.
Yield: about two dozen 2-inch rolls.
This recipe comes from a friend who is known for her participation in groups such as home demonstration clubs. It was published in the local news paper a number of years ago.
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
