Soft Dinner Rolls

S said she would make pasta for dinner.  And I thought it would be great to have  some freshly baked dinner rolls and chanced upon this recipe at An Oregon Cottage .  It was my first visit to this particular blog and the step by step pictures showed some delicious rolls and she said they were 100% soft.  And I am in total agreement.  While she used total wheat flour, I used half bread flour and half of whole wheat flour.  And they turned out just fine.  And with some good pasta they were the perfect accompaniment.

Recipe - makes 24 dinner rolls
( I made 8 of these)

Dry yeast - 2 tbsp
Warm water - 1/2 cup
Honey - 1/4 cup
Softened butter - 1/2 cup
Eggs - 3
Buttermilk or milk - 1 cup ( I used milk)
Whole wheat flour - 4 1/2 - 5 cups
Salt - 1 1/2 tsp

Dissolve the yeast in warm water and keep aside

I made the dough manually - you can use a dough maker/mixer

Cream the honey and butter.
Add the eggs and mix well
Then the milk and the yeast mixture

Add the flour and the salt. Mix till well combined.
Knead for a couple of minutes
The dough will be sticky but it should not stick to your fingers so add some more tbsp of flour if required

Transfer to a clean oiled bowl and keep in a warm place for an hour till it rises to double the volume

Turn on to a well floured surface.  Knead a couple of times. Rest for 3 minutes
Divide into equal pieces.  Shape into a ball.  And place in a well buttered/greased pan. I left a little place between them, but keep them preferably alongside touching each other.
Cover and allow to rise for an hour

Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180 C
Bake for about 20-25 minutes.  ( 20 were more than enough for me )
Till they turn golden brown

When they are still warm brush the tops with butter.  Tear apart and serve warm.
