We have to admit that this week of university overwhelmed us a bit so that we didn’t manage to do anything but lying on the sofa, that’s why we didn’t write new articles here. But I am quite sure that one day soon we will get used to it and start posting more frequently. But let’s get to our topic: Breakfast 🙂
What does everyone here need for breakfast? Right, rolls. Those you can buy at a bakery are usually ok but sometimes I feel the urge to have some DIY rolls 🙂 Bread and rolls seemed to have been my enemies when it comes to preparation. They never turn out the way I wanted them to and because we lack a decent bread knife 😀 But these rolls are actually easy and the dough doesn’t have to rise for 2 days or whatever. Nevertheless these are the best rolls we ever made: crispy and at the same time soft on the inside. Great. I can recommend you to prepare them for example Friday night and then put them in the fridge until Saturday morning because like that you only have to mould them in the morning, let them rise another 15 minutes and then put them in the oven.
You can also prepare them like Saturday morning but then you have to wait a lot longer because the dough has to rise 1 hour and let’s be honest, who likes to wait that long for breakfast on a weekend or any other day actually 🙂
I know, those of you who are not german or from a nation that uses to eat bread and rolls may not be to comfy with this type of food but I must recommend you to try them at least once 🙂
Ingredients for 5 rolls
- 250g flour type 550
- 150g Joghurt
- 50ml water
- 1pck of dried yeast
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 shot of olive oil
- Weigh out all ingredients and mix everything in a bowl except for the water. Then add just as much water (bit by bit) as you need to get a really smooth dough. If it is too sticky, just add a bit of flour, but it may be a little bit sticky.
- As soon as the dough is ready (smooth and a bit sticky) add some flour to a bowl so that the dough wouldn't be stuck on the bowl later, then mould a ball and put it in the bowl, cover it with a wet cloth and let it rise at a warm place for about 1 hour.
- Then you can mould little rolls and cut a little cross or just a line into them. Preheat the oven (180 Celsius/ 356 Fahrenheit/circulating air) but leave the rolls another 15 minutes on the tray covert with the cloth.
- Now, just put them in the oben for about 20 minutes and that should be it 🙂
