A bucket dough made richer with melted butter and eggs is perfect for making soft, silky rolls, which are a dandy accompaniment for any meal! They can be ready in a pinch, if the dough is made the day before and stored in the refrigerator.
Ingredients
  • 1¾ cup lukewarm water
  • 1 Tb granulated yeast
  • 1 Tb salt
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 5½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour, (white whole wheat is preferred)
  • ½ cup wheat germ or wheat bran
  • Egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 Tb water)
Instructions
  1. Mix yeast, salt, eggs, honey, and melted butter with the water in a 6-quart bowl or a bucket with a lid.
  2. Mix in flour without kneading, using a Danish whisk, wooden spoon, or stand mixer.
  3. Cover (not airtight) and allow to rest at room temperature until dough rises and collapses, approximately two hours.
  4. The dough can be used immediately, but it will be easier to handle if you refrigerate it at least two hours, and up to one week.
  5. On baking day: Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  6. Pinch off pieces of dough (gold-ball-sized, or a bit larger) with your greased hands, and quickly shape into balls and place in greased cake pan, barely touching. Brush with egg wash.
  7. Allow to rest for 20 minutes.
  8. Bake until golden brown on top, and firm on the bottom, about 20 minutes.
  9. Brush with melted butter and serve while hot.
  10. Prepare for adulation and sincere compliments!
