- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, oil, eggs, salt and 3 cups all-purpose flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Divide dough into three portions; place in separate bowls. Add the remaining all-purpose flour to one bowl, the whole wheat flour to another bowl and the cornmeal to the last bowl.
- Turn each portion onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place each portion in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Divide each portion of dough into 24 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Place one of each of the balls in greased muffin cups; brush with butter. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
- Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.
