Whole Wheat French Rolls
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 16 rolls
  • 1 ½ cups warm water (hot tap water)
  • 1 Tbs. active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 2 Tbs. white sugar
  • 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  1. In a large bowl, stir together warm water, yeast and sugar. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Tip: This is called “proofing” your yeast.
  2. To the yeast mixture, add the oil, salt and 2 cups flour. Stir in the remaining flour, ½ cup at a time, until the dough has pulled away from the sides of the bowl. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
  3. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour. Tip: I mix everything into a large glass bowl and I knead it right in the bowl.
  4. Deflate the dough, and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. divide the dough into 16 equal pieces, and form into round balls. Place on lightly greased baking sheets at least 2 inches apart. Cover the rolls with a damp cloth, and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
