I can't remember the last time I bought bread at the bakery. For some time I bake it myself now and am very satisfied, even if I have so far only baked with yeast. Sourdough, however, is already on the list to try. But even with yeast, fresh or sometimes with the dry version, you can make great breads, rolls, and baguettes – and it's really not that difficult. Just give it a try. Here's a simple recipe for some crunchy rolls.-Nicole
- 1/2 Package Dry Yeast
- 330 g Lukewarm Water
- 1 TSP Honey
- 350 g All Purpose Flour
- 150 g Whole Grain Wheat Flour
- 2 TSP Salt
Here’s how to do it
- First, put the lukewarm water in a bowl and dissolve the yeast and honey in it.
- Then add all the other ingredients and knead them by hand into a smooth dough. If the dough is too sticky, put some flour on your hand.
- Now cover the dough and put it for 60 minutes in a warm place to rest. It should now have risen strongly.
- Preheat the oven to 240 degrees Celsius and place a bowl of water on the bottom of the oven.
- Put the dough on your floured work surface and flour the dough once all around.
- Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, form them into balls and flatten them slightly. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and use a sharp knife to cut any pattern on top. I usually do an x for rolls.
- Let your dough rest covered again for about 30 minutes.
- Now put the baking tray in the oven for about 20 minutes and your rolls are ready.
