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.

20180820 Sundried Clovers 05

These rolls come together very quickly and are full of delicious sun-dried tomatoes and cheese (what a classic combination!). Clover rolls are named after the clover plant, because they have three pieces. Being able to pull the rolls apart was a terrific fun factor for our toddler!

You will need:

  • 2 1/4 t (1 packet) yeast
  • 1/2 c milk, lukewarm
  • 1/3 c water, lukewarm
  • 10 oz sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained with 3 T of the oil reserved
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 T onion powder
  • 3 1/4 c flour
  • 1 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  3. Mix in the tomatoes, tomato oil, salt, egg, onion powder, flour and cheese.
  4. Knead until smooth and soft, 7-8 minutes.
  5. Lightly grease a large bowl and put the dough in, coating it on all sides. Cover with a damp towel and allow to double in size, roughly one hour.
  6. Lightly grease a 12 muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  7. Roll the dough into 36 small balls and put three in each muffin cup.
  8. Allow to rise another 30 minutes.
  9. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  10. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the rolls are lightly golden on the edges and gently spring back under your finger.
