- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup Wholewheat Flour
- 2 tsp instant yeast
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter (softened)
- 1 cup Lukewarm Water
- Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of the stand mixer or a large mixing bowl. Mix and knead until a smooth and pliable dough forms, it should take about 7~8 minutes.
- Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover and rest for 60~90 minutes, until puffy but not necessarily doubles in bulk.
- Grease 8 5~6oz. ramekins.
- Gently deflate the dough, divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, then divide each piece into 4 balls. There will be 32 pieces in all. Now roll each piece into a ball.
- Place 4 balls into each of the prepared ramekins. Cover the pans and let the rolls rise for 45~75 minutes or until the rolls have crested over the rims of the ramekins.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Bake the rolls for 25~30 minutes, or until golden brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 200°F.
- Brush the rolls with melted butter and let them cool for 5 minutes in the ramekins. Then turn them onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve warm or at room temperature.
