A delicious alternative to our white rolls made with Allinson white dough, our wholemeal rolls are a wonderful edition to the beginner baker’s recipe list. We like ours served warm straight from the oven, or popped in a packed lunch as part of a healthy meal.

Method

  1. MIX Mix the flours, yeast and salt in a big bowl. Mix together the melted butter, sugar and water, then mix in with a cutlery knife.

  2. KNEAD Tip onto a lightly flour dusted surface and knead for 10 minutes (or use the dough hook attachment on your mixer). 

  3. RISE Lightly grease the mixing bowl with some oil. Put the dough back in, cover the bowl with a clean tea towel and leave to rise until doubled in size.

  4. SHAPE Knock back the dough by gently kneading just 5 times to get the air out. Cut the dough into 12 even pieces (use a weighing scales if you like). Roll each piece into a ball and sit on two flour-dusted baking sheets – they’ll need room between them for growing.

  5. PROVE Cover the rolls with a clean tea towel and leave to prove until doubled in size. Preheat your oven to 220°C (fan 200°C, gas mark 7).

  6. BAKE Bake the rolls for 20 minutes or until golden. If you tap the base of a roll it should sound hollow. Cool on a wire rack.

    I love wholemeal bread and this is one of the best, easiest and tastiest I’ve made. Every time I go to visit mother I have to make double the amount to take with me. Also it’s really good to freeze and just as tasty when defrosted.

    Very easy to prepare, good practice for hand kneading skills. Wholemeal recipe that works. Thank you.
