Whole Wheat Buttermilk Rolls Recipe

Irene Cliett in Cedar Bluff, Mississippi is always looking for recipes tailored to her husband’s low-fat, low-sugar diet. “These rolls have just a hint of sweetness and we both love them,“ she says.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. + rising Bake: 10 min. YIELD:18 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) quick-rise yeast
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the self-rising flour, 3/4 cup whole wheat flour, sugar and yeast. In a small saucepan, heat buttermilk and oil to 120°-130° (mixture will appear curdled). Add to dry ingredients; beat just until smooth. Stir in remaining whole wheat flour.
  • 2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • 3. Roll dough to 1/2-in. thickness; cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Place 2 in. apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 35-40 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for 1-1/2 cups self-rising flour, place 2-1/4 teaspoons baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup. Combine with an additional 1/2 cup all-purpose flour.

"This recipe is not for beginner cooks. I followed the recipe exactly but the biscuits did not rise, and before you ask, yes I did add the quick-rise yeast!"
