Recipe: Whole Wheat Rolls

Rolls made of whole-wheat flour are not so common as those made of white flour, and for this reason they appeal to the appetite more than ordinary Rolls. Whole-wheat Rolls have the same advantage as Bread made of whole-wheat flour, and if they are well baked they have a crust that adds to their palatableness.

(Sufficient for 3 Dozen Rolls)

  •  1 pt. lukewarm milk
  •  1 cake compressed yeast
  •  1 tsp. salt
  •  3 Tb. sugar
  •  4 Tb. fat
  •  2 c. white flour
  •  4 c. whole-wheat flour
  •  1/2 c. white flour additional for kneading

Set a sponge with the lukewarm milk, in which are put the yeast cake, salt, sugar, fat, and white flour. Allow this to become very light, and then add the whole-wheat flour. Knead this dough and allow it to double in bulk. Then shape it into Rolls, allow them to rise, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
