Decided to do a little baking for my challenge this month. For years every single dinner roll I have ever made out of whole wheat bread, tasted just like a mini loaf of bread. I wanted a dinner roll that tasted like a dinner roll and it was fluffy and soft. So I gave up and stopped making the dinner rolls.
Then one day on Pinterest I saw Soft 100% Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls. Because of the awesome looking rolls, I decided to look at the recipe. Because of the 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup honey, and 3 eggs I decided to give it a try.
I used my bread machine to mix the dough just right. I did have to add about 1/2 cup more flour than called for. Then I proceeded to shape the rolls according to the instructions.
Next I placed them in my USA pan and let them rise for a long time. Notice the sides are touching. This helps with the softness.
After baking, I brushed melted butter on top of each roll. This picture is before I put the butter on it. So, you have 1/2 cup butter inside, melted butter on the top, and smear butter on when sliced open. What’s not to love there? Aren’t they purdy!
Look at that light fluffiness! De-lish!
Verdict: Family loved them and all were gone by the time dinner was over. YUMMY! So TOTALLY NAILED IT!! I nailed it so well, I may make these again for our Thanksgiving Dinner.
