Wheat-Honey Rolls (Overnight)

Kathleen Taylor


These yeast rolls don’t require kneading, and the make-ahead dough saves you time on the day of your meal. I love the hint of honey, too.

How to Make Wheat-Honey Rolls (Overnight)


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water, and 1 tsp sugar. Let yeast bloom. (5-10 minutes)
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until foamy.
  3. Add the yeast mixture, honey, oil, salt, whole wheat flour, vital wheat gluten and remaining water. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Beat until smooth.
  4. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky). Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide in half. Shape each portion into nine balls.
  6. To form knots, roll each ball into a 10-in. rope; tie into a knot. Tuck ends under.
  7. Place rolls 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 50 minutes.
  8. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter if desired.
