Honey Whole Wheat Rolls

Paula Deen used WHOLE WHEAT? Haha I know, you were expecting extra butter rolls with surprise butter filling huh? Well, we actually tried these honey whole wheat rolls out and they were really light and yummy! Hooray Paula!

Can Honey Make You Sick?

Raw honey can contain spores of bacteria that may cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

Raw honey is more nutritious, because it has not been processed with heat.

Pasteurized honey is filtered and processed with heat to remove any impurities and destroy any bacteria.

Processed honey has a longer shelf life.

Can You Use Honey Instead of Sugar In Baking?

To use honey in place of 1 cup of sugar, use 2 tablespoons less honey.

The flavor and texture may not be exactly the same, but you may like it better.

Can Bread Dough Be Frozen?

Make dough as you normally would.

After shaping it into rolls or loaves, place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and freeze.

Once frozen, transfer the dough to heavy duty freezer bags.

Freeze for up to 1 month.
