Sweet Molasses Brown Rolls

November 22, 2018

One of my favorite smells is fresh baked bread. These rolls have a hint of sweetness from the honey and molasses.

You will need:

  • 1 c warm water
  • 2 1/4 t (1 package) yeast
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 T unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 c honey
  • 3 T molasses
  • 1 T unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 c whole wheat flour
  • 2 c all-purpose flour

Then you will…

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the water with the yeast and sugar. Allow to bloom for 5 minutes.
  2. Mix in the egg, butter, honey, molasses, cocoa powder, and salt.
  3. Mix in the flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
  4. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead the dough until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
  5. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, covered with plastic wrap.
  6. Allow to rise until doubled, about an hour.
  7. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  8. Divide the dough into 16 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball.
  9. Place the rolls in the prepared baking dish and lightly cover with plastic wrap.
  10. Allow to rise until doubled again, about another hour.
  11. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  12. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the rolls are golden on the edges and sound hollow when tapped.
