Let the baking commence!
The coming weeks will be filled with baking recipes and, let’s be honest, most will be sweet. ‘Tis the season. With that in mind, I decided to kick off the baking frenzy with some savory and, dare I say, healthy treats!
These Honey Wheat Buttermilk Rolls, perfect for the holiday table, are tangy and delicious, almost like whole wheat sourdough. The are also easy to make. No kneading. Just a stand mixer and time (unattended) for the dough to rise.
In addition to the recipe, I rounded up some tips on baking with whole wheat flour. Keeping just a few things in mind will ensure that your whole wheat baked goods stay fluffy and soft.
You’ll see that I slightly adapted the recipe from the always-brilliant Aimee of Simple Bites. There, she gives additional tips for baking with whole wheat. Between those and her genius technique of baking the rolls in a jar, it’s worth a pop on over. Seriously brilliant. And pretty, too.
(And the insides of these rolls aren’t too ugly, either!)
