Yogurt Yeast Rolls


People tend to snap up these fluffy, golden rolls, in a hurry whenever I take them to a potluck. It's a nice combination since rolls are easy to transport and one batch goes a long way. -- Carol Forcum, Marion, Illinois

24 servings


  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

  • 3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, divided

  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 ½ cups plain yogurt

  • ½ cup water

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine

  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, yeast, salt and baking soda. In a saucepan over low heat, heat yogurt, water, butter and honey to 120 degrees F-130 degrees F. Pour over dry ingredients; blend well. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; divide into 24 pieces. Roll each piece into a 9-in. rope. To form S shaped rolls, coil each end of rope toward center in opposite directions. Place 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Spray tops with nonstick cooking spray while warm. Cool on wire racks.
