Farmhouse Rolls- Artisan Blend

Farmhouse Rolls

Servings 9-12 rolls | Prep Time 180 min | Cook Time 20-25 min



  • 1 1/4 cups warm water (heated to approx. 105°) If dry climate, add up to ¼ cup more water
  • 1 cup milk or vegan milk (heated to approx. 105°)
  • 1 package (7g) Instant Yeast
  • 50 grams sugar or sugar substitute (Swerve sweetener, monk fruit sweetener, or maple sugar)
  • 245 grams Artisan Blend Flour 
  • Fermented Sponge (from above)
  • 57 grams melted butter or vegan butter for the batter
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter or vegan melted butter to brush on top of the rolls after baking




Note: Sponge needs to be made and fermented in advance. See directions below:
Mix Sponge Ingredients. Put all of the sponge ingredients into the bowl of an electric mixer and mix until well combined.
Cover and set on the counter to ferment for at least 1 hour and as long as 4 hours.
Add Ingredients. Into the fermented sponge, add the artisan blend flour, butter (or vegan butter), apple cider vinegar, and salt.
Mix Ingredients. Using the paddle attachment of your mixer, begin mixing on low to combine. Increase to medium/high speed for 5 minutes until the dough is cohesive and fluffy.
Gather dough together in the mixing bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for 2 hours to allow the dough to hydrate and chill.
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add a small amount of flour to the parchment to avoid sticking and set aside.
Lightly flour your board and put the dough onto the board.
Roll dough into a rectangle, about 2 inches in thickness.
Cut Dough. Use any sharp object like a knife or pizza cutter to cut dough into squares, or use a 3 inch square biscuit cutter.
Transfer the cut rolls onto the prepared baking sheet.
Brush the tops of rolls with milk or vegan milk and let rise until doubled in size, about 35 to 45 minutes.
Bake at 475° F for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown or to an internal temperature of 210°F on a digital thermometer.
Remove from oven and brush hot rolls with melted butter or vegan butter. Enjoy!
