of the joys of baking bread has been experimenting with our own
1 ½ Tbsp. yeast
2 Tbsp. honey
3 cups Fortuna spring wheat flour
3 cups white flour
½ cup honey
2 cups very hot water
2 tsp. salt
½ cup warm water
3 tsp. butter
Grind Fortuna wheat and measure 3 cups in a bowl. Add the 2 cups very hot water and stir thoroughly and let cool. Mix the yeast with ½ cup warm water, 2 Tbsp. honey, 2 tsp salt and let soften for 20 minutes. Mix the ½ cup honey and 3 tsp. butter (warm to blend either in the microwave or stovetop). After 20 minutes mix all ingredients together into a nice dough. You may need to add another cup or so of white flour depending on your areas humidity to get good dough. Knead and let rise for 2 hours. Punch down and make into dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, etc. and let rise 30 minutes and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown. Remove from the oven, coat top of rolls with melted butter, turn out to cool and enjoy! These rolls will keep nicely for a few days in a covered container and the dinner rolls also freeze well. This recipe is enough for one pan (9 by 13) of dinner rolls plus one pan (9 by 13) of cinnamon rolls.
