Lightly sweetened with malt, these light-textured, golden rolls are great for sandwiches, or served alongside soup or stew.

1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
1 3/4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 cups King Arthur whole wheat flour (Traditional or 100% White Wheat)
1/4 cup soy flour
3/4 cup malted wheat flakes
1/4 cup malted milk powder or Baker's Special Dry Milk or nonfat dry milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 teaspoons salt

Combine all of the dough ingredients, and mix and knead them—by hand, mixer, or bread machine—until you have a very soft, slightly sticky dough. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, and allow it to rise for 1 1/2 hours. Gently deflate it, and transfer it to a lightly greased or lightly floured work surface.

Divide the dough into 16 pieces, and roll each piece into a smooth ball. Place the rolls on lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheets, leaving about 2" between them for crustier rolls, or placing them just 1" apart to make soft-sided rolls. Cover with lightly greased plastic wrap, and let the rolls rise till they're quite puffy, about 45 to 50 minutes.

Bake the rolls in a preheated 375°F oven for 18 to 22 minutes, until they're golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and brush with melted butter. Allow them to cool on a rack. Yield: 16 rolls.

  • This is a great roll and I will make it over again many times. My husband loved them and ate almost half of the rolls before dinner. I did make a few changes that worked very well. I used a tbls of honey, reduced the all purpose flour to 1.5 cups and added 1/4 cup of rolled oats. Since I did not have soy flour I used 1/4 cup of oat flour. I also used 1 tsp of distalic malt powder.
