These whole grain rolls are tender and delicious even without toppings. I adapted the recipe from one my mom made after sampling something similar at a restaurant.—Angela Coffman, Kansas City, Missouri

TOTAL TIME:
Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 10 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 to 1 cup bread flour

Directions

In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, milk powder, 2 tablespoons butter, egg, salt and whole wheat flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough bread flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
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.
In a shallow microwave-safe bowl, melt remaining butter. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 16 pieces. Shape each into a ball; roll in melted butter. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 16 rolls.

"I doubled the recipe, and added 2 Tablespoons of Vital Wheat Gluten with the flour. These had a delightful flavor, and were very light for a whole wheat roll. My family loves 'em!"
