Bread roll

Where would our life be without the past our ancestors lived through? Let’s make bread rolls and explore the possibilities along the way!

As I lately have some time, I had been browsing on the web a few days ago. Looking for new, exciting tips, inspiring meals that We have never tasted before, to amaze my family with. Looking for a while but couldn’t discover lots of interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I came across this delightful and easy treat by chance. The dessert looked so scrumptious on its snapshot, that called for urgent actions.

It was not so difficult to imagine just how it is created, how it tastes and just how much my husband will want it. Mind you, it is quite simple to please the guy in terms of treats. Anyhow, I went to the webpage: Suncakemom and then used the comprehensive instuctions that were accompanied by wonderful pics of the process. It really makes life quite easy. I could imagine that it is a slight effort to take photos in the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may ordinarily have sticky hands and so i seriously appreciate the time and effort she devote to build this post .

With that said I am empowered presenting my own recipe in the same way. Many thanks the idea.

I was fine tuning the original recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I can tell you it was a terrific outcome. They enjoyed the taste, the structure and enjoyed having a delicacy such as this in the midst of a lively week. They basically asked for even more, many more. So the next time I’m not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am gonna double the volume to keep them pleased.

Measure the flour then add the starter, yeast and the lemon.

Start kneading the dough and gradually add the water. When the dough is somewhat got together add the salt too. Salt plays an important role in tightening gluten structure so try not to skip this step.

We are after a fairly soft and tacky dough here so don’t be scared if the dough doesn’t come off the side of the bowl or from our hands.

Place the dough into a big bowl or just to a place with a temperature between 68°F – 81°F / 20 – 27°C where it can rest for 90 minutes. If we are short of big bowls just sprinkle some water on the dough then cover it with a clean damp kitchen cloth. If the water evaporates from the kitchen cloth just sprinkle some more on it.

In 90 minutes, our dough should double in size. With a bit of luck the kitchen cloth won’t stick onto the dough either.

Flour the top of the dough then flatten it by hand.

Divide the dough into 15 equal pieces which are about 3 oz / 80g each.

Start rolling the dough into a ball with a circling motion with our fingers are bent inwards.

The dough should stick to the working surface that will help us shaping a uniformly stretched surface. Apply a couple of drop of water to the bottom if they don’t stick.

On the other hand the dough will stick to our hands that will hinder our ability to make nice balls out of them so don’t forget to dust the hands before each dough rolling.Still in doubt? Check out: How to roll bread roll No.1

Once we have rolled up all the dough, sprinkle water on them.

Cover the moist dough balls with a damp kitchen cloth.

Then place the covered dough into a 68°F – 81°F / 20 – 27°C spot for 30 minutes.

Give them another roll. If all done well during the process of rolling, we can see and hear air bubbles coming and deflating. This will be the final shape of the bread rolls so mind not to tear the surface now. Hey, there is a video about this: How to roll bread roll No.2

Place the rolled dough balls onto a baking tray with a parchment paper or use flour to dust it beforehand then sprinkle water on top of the dough balls.

Place a damp kitchen cloth on top of the dough balls and place them to a 68°F – 81°F / 20 – 27°C spot for 90 minutes. Check if the cloth needs watering and moist it if necessary.

When the bread rolls doubles remove the kitchen cloth and sprinkle more water on top.

Now it’s time to add chia, sesame or poppy seed on top then put the bread rolls into the preheated oven.

For these bread rolls, we need steam to bake them to perfection but unfortunately not all ovens are equipped with such functions so we have to make our own steam bath. Get a couple of stones and place them into a tray onto the bottom of the oven. The stones will increase the hot surface the water can interact and create more steam quicker.

Heat the oven to its maximum with the stones on the bottom which is in most cases 365°F / 180°C. Place the bread rolls into the middle rack, pour a cup of water onto the stones and quickly close the oven door.

Bread rolls need about 15 minutes but much depends on the oven so after about 8 minutes check them if they need a hand. If only one of the sides are getting the golden brown color, swap sides.

Apply a thin coat of water on top to create a softer crust if desired.
