- 3/4 cup beer
- 1 tsp active dry yeast
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1cup whole wheat flour
- 1-1/2 cups bread flour, about
- Prep Time: 120 minutes
- Cook Time: 15 minutes
- Total Time: 135 minutes
- In medium bowl, mix beer and yeast. Add coconut oil, honey, salt, wheat flour. Stir. Add 1 cup of flour and mix well. Slowly add in remaining flour, enough flour to make a dough that follows the spoon around the bowl. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead for 4 minutes, adding more flour as needed until the dough is soft and smooth to the touch. Place dough in medium greased bowl. Turn dough over in bowl so that the top is also lightly greased. Cover with clean cloth and let rise in warm, draft-free place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
- Punch down dough. Turn dough out onto lightly floured board and knead for 4 minutes or until the bubbles are out of the bread. Divide dough into 6 small rolls, 5 medium rolls, or 4 large rolls. Place on greased baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Cover and let rise in warm, draft-free place for 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
- Bake bread at 375 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown. Remove rolls from sheet and let cool on rack.
Bread Baking Tips:
- Learn how to make braided rolls with these pictured instructions.
- Learn how to make swirl rolls with these pictured instructions.
- Keep yeast stored in an airtight container and in the refrigerator. Heat, moisture, and air kills the yeast and prevents bread dough from rising.
- To keep bread soft, store in a plastic bag.
- Store flour properly to keep it from spoiling.
- Bread flour has a higher amount of gluten than all-purpose flour. This means that bread made with bread flour will rise higher than bread made with all-purpose flour. You can make your own bread flour by adding 1-1/2 teaspoons gluten to each cup of all-purpose flour you use in your bread recipe.
- When honey is added to bread dough, it helps protect the baked bread's moisture.
- Spraying loaves with water while they bake will produce a crispy crust.
- Brush loaves with egg white before baking to produce a shiny crust.
- Brush loaves with milk before baking to produce a dark, shiny crust.
- Brush loaves with butter immediately after baking to produce a soft crust.
