100% Whole Wheat Bread Rolls

Labels: { , }

This simple whole wheat bread has proved that the wholemeal bread really doesn't have to be dense and dry. They taste great with homemade jam, mango chutney, herbal butter or cheese.

  • 250 g Wholemeal
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 20 g Fresh yeast
  • 175 ml Lukewarm water
  1. Mix together the wholemeal and salt in a mixing bowl. Set aside. Dissolve the fresh yeast in 175ml water. Add into the flour mixture. Knead at the low speed until the dough forms and become smooth and elastic.
  2. Cover with a damp towel and let ferment at room temperature for about 40 minutes until the dough has doubled in size. Preheat the oven to 220C/430F with a bowl of boiled water.
  3. Punch down the dough and form into a roll, then divide into 8 portions. Round up and flatten each dough with your palm. Place them on a baking tray lined with a baking paper. Slash or cross-hatch the bread with a sharp knife. Spread some kernels on it. Allow them to rest for 30 minutes until about doubled.
  4. Bake the bread rolls in the middle of preheated oven for about 20 minutes. Remove and cool the bread rolls on a wire rack.

Oh, my favorite rolls are the fresh hot ones that come out from the oven like these, a little, I mean a LOT of butter and from one dozen to six :) I have to make homemade bread again, and you keep making me so hungry here!

I'm surprise how it isn't dense and dry with just wholemeal flour.. I've tried to make 100% wholewheat breads but they never worked. I'm going to try it again with this recipe :)

Cooking-Gallery 31/10/09 11:06

Wow, nice looking bread! I always prefer white bread (even though it's quite unhealthy), but my husband would love this. Thank you for sharing!

My Little Space 31/10/09 11:39

Fantastic. There are few things more wonderful than bread fresh from the oven.

Dajana 31/10/09 22:25

I love fresh bread, and I've been testing different types of flour. Personally I like wholemeal and seeds in my bread, but my husband doesn't. I make it for myself.

Absolutley inviting Angie!!!

tracieMoo 17/11/09 13:40

Hi Angie, I was about to make this bread and I was wondering what is fresh yeast? could I use instant yeast for this?

Angie's Recipes 17/11/09 18:13

@Tracie: Fresh yeast is ivory colored with a yellowish hue and is soft and moist. And yes, you can use instant yeast, but you might need to adjust the amount. Here one cake of fresh yeast (42 grams) is good enough for about 500 grams of flour.

tracieMoo 21/11/09 14:15

I made this today with normal instant yeast and it turned out great! Thankyou so much Angie :)

Hi, What do you mean by "Preheat the oven to 220C/430F with a bowl of boiled water."? thanks.

Angie's Recipes 24/5/10 07:01

lc: Place an oven-proof bowl or a baking tray filled with water at the bottom of your oven.

Anonymous 24/5/10 10:33

thanks angie. may i know the purpose for this? lc

Angie's Recipes 24/5/10 12:00

lc: The bread will be more moist and it helps to gain the nice brown colour.
