Ingredients

  • 6 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 4 cups flour, cornmeal, yeast, salt and baking soda. In a small saucepan, heat the water, honey and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat until smooth. Stir in rice and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 30 pieces. Shape each into a roll. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks.
