I proofed the yeast in the bowl of my Kitchen Aid with the warm milk and sugar for ten minutes, then added the honey, the melted butter and the dry ingredients. I did use part whole wheat flour. I did need almost 1/4 of a cup more flour than the recipe called for to get it to form into a ball and jump on the hook. I kneaded the dough with the dough hook for five minutes. Once it was done kneading, I set it to rise in a covered, greased bowl on a warm heating pad until it doubled. I then used my 1/2 cup dry measuring cup to measure out balls, rolled them tight, and plopped them into 12 greased muffin tins. I let it sit on the warm heating pad covered with saran wrap for a half hour, then baked it at 400 degrees for 12 minutes. Out of the oven, I brushed each roll with vegetable oil to make a soft top. I got twelve GINORMOUS rolls out of this recipe (I made them bigger so that I would not have to use two muffin tins), instead of two loaves. This bread recipe is quite good. I was worried that the amount of yeast might not be enough but it rose perfectly and still made one of the biggest rolls I've ever seen. This bread IS a little on the sweet side, if you're looking for a more savory-yeasty roll, this may not be for you. My whole family loved it, it paired nicely with Potato Soup. I'll make this again.
