Makes 16 rolls
For the dough:
1 1/4 cups buttermilk, heated to lukewarm
4 tablespoons butter, cut into 6 pieces
2 tablespoons molasses
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup whole rye flour
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons caraway seeds (optional)
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
Heaping 1/2 cup dried potato flakes or 3 tablespoons potato flour
2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
For the topping:
2-3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1. To prepare the dough: Combine all the dough ingredients and mix and knead them by hand, mixer or bread machine, until you have a medium-soft, smooth dough. Cover and allow the dough to rise until it's quite puffy, though it may not have doubled in bulk, 1 to 2 hours.
2. Lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch, 11-inch square, 12-inch round, or similar-size pan.
3. Gently deflate the dough and transfer to a lightly greased work surface. Divide into 16 pieces. Shape each piece into a rough ball, then roll it under the palm of your hand to create a smooth ball.
4. Place the rolls in the prepared pan, spacing them evenly. Cover the pan with lightly greased wax paper or a proof cover, and allow the rolls to rise for about 2 hours. They'll become quite puffy and will reach out and touch one another. Toward the end of the rise, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Uncover the rolls and bake until they're an even light brown all over, 25 minutes. From the oven, after 2 or 3 minutes, transfer them to a rack. Brush the hot rolls with the melted butter. Serve warm or at room temperature.
