- 4 tablespoons active dry yeast
- 2 tablespoons plus 2/3 cup sugar, divided
- 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
- 2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 4 cups whole wheat flour
- 4-1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and 2 tablespoons sugar in warm water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the milk, eggs, oil, salt and remaining sugar; beat until smooth. Stir in whole wheat flour and enough all-purpose flour to form a soft sticky batter. Do not knead. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours.
- Punch dough down. Divide into thirds. Cover and refrigerate two portions. Turn the remaining portion onto a lightly floured surface; roll or pat to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Repeat with remaining dough. Place rolls 2-1/2-in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 2 hours. Bake at 425° for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter. Remove to wire racks. Yield: about 5 dozen.
