  • Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in the butter, sugar and salt; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.

  • In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture, milk mixture, whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour; stir well to combine. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 45 minutes.

  • Deflate the dough and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into twelve equal pieces and form into football-shaped oval. Place the rolls onto lightly greased baking sheets. Brush rolls with melted butter, cover with greased plastic wrap, and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve warm.

I use Robin Hood Multigrain flour and they turn out perfect. The 1/2 white/whole wheat are rather bland. I am not experienced enough with bread to know what to add or change to improve on the flavour for the original recipe (more salt?). But with the multigrain flour they do not need any adjustment. Besides we love the crunchy grains. Read More

All right - maybe good for a bread base in another recipe. I'll probably try other recipes before I ever come back to this one. Read More

This was a really easy resipe especially since I am an amateur baker! I actually "veganized" this recipe by using soymilk and margarine instead and they still worked out great! Read More

I chose this recipe from many available online because it didn't contain a lot of sugar or honey. This makes a nice savory roll when a little garlic powder and rosemary is added. I also brushed with olive oil instead of butter and salted the tops. Next time I might double the recipe to make sandwich rolls. An easy recipe to follow and fast for a yeast bread. Every element performed as expected and the result tastes very good. Read More

I have been looking for an easy or quick whole wheat dinner roll recipe for several years I guess I will have to continue looking. although the recipe is easy and quick the resulting product leaves something to be desired they were dry and a little doughy. I live at high altitude and I did not do any adjustments to the receipe I wanted to try it with out adding extra this and that and adjusting the leavening. Next time I will try adjusting for altitude and do a follow-up review. Read More

Very simple recipe and like the idea of mno molasses but I think an egg was omitted from your recipe. This makes for a better roll. Tried both ways and the egg makes a great difference. Read More

Balanced wheat taste and easy! Not too sweet and not overpowering on the wheat. Be creative and top with seasonings that appeal to you. We chose to sprinkle the butter (I used olive oil) tops with thyme and garlic powder. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

the rolls were great but your timing is off! You said that in total this recipe is ready in 16 minutes when it really takes over an hour and a half! You may want to fix this. I will always make this bread though its very soft! Read More

Very good very easy and very healthy! I used all whole wheat flour except for substituting 1/2 cup of wheat germ. I sweetened it with Splenda and used whole wheat yeast. They came out dense and delicious. Perfect with soup. Read More
