  • 125 g Sourdough Starter Active and Bubbly
  • 250 g Warm Water
  • 80 g Warm Milk Whole or 2%
  • 24 g Honey
  • 260 g Bread Flour
  • 240 g Whole Wheat Flour
  • 12 g Fine Sea Salt


  • In a large bowl, mix together the starter, water, milk, and honey. Use a whisk or a fork to mix.
  • Add the flours and salt to the bowl and mix again. One the dough gets to hard to mix with a fork, use your hands to finish mixing everything together.
  • Cover with a damp towel and allow the dough to rest for 45 minutes in a warm, draft free environment. An OFF oven is a great place to allow the dough to rest. Feed the rest of your starter while you wait for the dough to rise.
  • After 45 minutes, mix the dough with your hands and form it into a ball. This should take about 20 seconds.
  • Cover the dough again and allow it to rise for 8-10 hours, depending on the temperature of your house.
  • The next morning, or 8 hours later, place the dough on a lightly floured surface and stretch it into a small rectangle, about 8x11 inches. Cut the dough into 12 pieces, 3 rows down, and 4 rows across.
  • Shape each dough pieces into a ball by folding the edges the dough ball. Once a ball is form, place the dough on a parchment lined baking sheet and cover the baking sheet with a damp kitchen towel. Allow it to rise one more time, for one hour.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Score the dough balls with a sharp knife or a lame.
  • Place the baking sheet in the oven for 30 minutes until the rolls are golden brown.
  • Serve the rolls warm or at room temperature.


  • A kitchen scale is essential in baking, that's why we are using grams instead of cups and measuring spoons.
  • To make this recipe vegan, substitute Almond Milk instead of whole milk.  Granulated sugar is a perfect substitute for honey.
