Light Rye and Caraway Seed Dinner Rolls

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! For our hearty corned beef and cabbage dinner I decided to change up our favorite classic dinner rolls and turn them into Light Rye and Caraway Seed Dinner Rolls. This turned out to be a good decision! The smell as they were baking was amazing and everyone really enjoyed the flavors. The rolls paired very well with this meal:@)
As you can see they were soft and squishy and that was very nice, especially for rye bread!

Light Rye and Caraway Seed Dinner Rolls
Up to 2 C A/P flour-start with 1 1/2 and add more if needed
1/4 C rye flour
2 Tblsp sugar
1 envelope (2 1/4 tsp) rapid rise yeast
1 tsp caraway seeds
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C milk
1/4 C water
2 Tblsp butter
  1. Combine 1/2 C A/P flour, rye flour, sugar, yeast, caraway seeds, and salt in large bowl.
  2. Heat milk, water and butter until warm (120 degrees), add to flour mixture and beat at medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.
  3. Add 1/4 C flour, beat 2 minutes at high speed.
  4. Stir in enough remaining flour 1/4 C at a time to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  5. Divide dough into 12 equal pieces, shape into balls and place in greased 9" round pan. Cover and let rise until double, about 30 minutes.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until done. 
Don't forget to wear your green and have a happy day:@)

  12. These sound really good, Lynn. I used to have rye flour on hand. I know my bread machine recipes with it always called for me to add gluten to it. I guess by using the AP flour, you solve that problem. I shall try it! Thanks!

  16. I know caraway isn't a flavor that everyone enjoys but I certainly do! They would be delicious with anything cabbage-y or a reuben sandwich.
