Honey yeast rolls (bread machine)
April 13, 2012 § 14 Comments
We had these rolls for Easter last Sunday, and they were delicious. Dave says to remind you that they are best with plenty of butter. As usual, I used the bread machine to knead the dough, and then baked the rolls in the oven. We use a Cuisinart bread machine…I’m perfectly capable of kneading bread by hand, but have discovered that the bread machine does a terrific job on its own, while freeing up my time for other things.
Honey yeast rolls (adapted for the bread machine)
1/4 cup warm water (100 to 110-degrees fahrenheit)
1 3/4 cups Greek yogurt
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/3 cup honey
2/3 cup wheat germ
1 (1/4 ounce) envelope active dry yeast
5 1/3 cup all purpose flour, divided
2 teaspoons salt
Place water, yogurt, eggs, butter, honey, wheat germ, and yeast in bread machine pan. Add 4 3/4 cups flour, and the salt. Start the bread machine on the “dough” setting. As the dough kneads, add additional flour as needed, up to the entire 5 1/3 cups of flour.
When dough cycle is complete, remove from bread pan, and place on a bread board, using any remaining flour to keep the bread from sticking. Form the dough into 28 (2 1/2″) balls. Place the bread balls in greased pans, cover, and allow to rise about 45 minutes, or until doubled in bulk.
Bake in a preheated 400-degree fahrenheit oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
This recipe makes 28 rolls.
