The World's Easiest Breakfast Rolls

Bolas found this recipe on my Danish cooking site: Absolut verdens nemmeste morgenmadsboller med billede fra Alletiders Kogebog

I modified it, because I only use whole grains.

Makes 8-12 rolls, depending on how big you want them.
  • 2 tsps active dry yeast (original recipe called for 25 grams of cake yeast)
  • 2 tsps salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 5 dl (decilitres) water
  • 600 grams hard (bread) whole grain wheat flour (original recipe called for 200 grams durum flour and 400 grams flour)

Use a bowl that will be large enough for the dough to more than double in size. A bowl with a tight fitting lid is ideal. I used plastic wrap as a lid.
  1. Put the cold water in the bowl and stir in the sugar.
  2. Sprinkle the dry yeast on the water and let it hydrate.
  3. Stir until the yeast is completely dissolved.
  4. Stir in 200 grams of the flour and the salt(original recipe said to stir in the durum flour).
  5. Stir in the rest of the flour.
  6. Put the lid on the bowl and put in the fridge overnight.

The dough will be very sticky.

Next morning:
  1. Preheat oven to 250 C (483 F).
  2. Using one or two spoons, put blobs of dough on a baking sheet. Don't knead the dough. Try to leave as much air in the dough as possible.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes

It was recommended (in the comments) to dip the spoon(s) in water.

I made half the recipe.

They were quite tasty, but dense.

I added more water, because the dough was quite stiff and didn't resemble the picture on the website. I also remembered that whole wheat flour absorbs more water. I added 100 ml (1 dl), but should probably only have added 50 ml. I also accidentally used 2 tsps of yeast, instead of the 1 tsp that would have been the amount for half the recipe.

I took them out after 15 minutes. They sounded hollow when I knocked on the bottom of one. They weren't quite done in the middle. I put them back in the oven for 7 minutes at 400 F. I'll probably use a thermometer next time.

The rolls were very crusty. I might brush milk on them next time. with softer crusts, these would make good hamburger buns.

I will be tweaking this recipe. Maybe use lukewarm water, instead of cold. Maybe take the dough out of the fridge half an hour before baking.

Any other suggestions?

If you use cake yeast, the instructions for adding the yeast are a little different. According to the original recipe:

Put the yeast, sugar, and salt in the bowl (before anything else).
Stir until it becomes liquid.
Then add the water and continue from there.

Defer addition of salt until enough flour has been added to bring the dough to the consistency of a thick pancake batter and the yeast has had an hour to work; then add balance of flour. Let dough rise at room temp for 2 hours and deflate before refrigerating. 'Form' the rolls with cold dough because it is easier to handle. Let formed dough sit as room temperature for 1/2 hour before baking.

Bill mate if you clic on the link in Taxes first post then run your translator, scroll down to the comments you will see some comment that are funny and not as pleasant as your comment on yeast and salt

Hvis du tilsætter salt sammen med gær ødelægger du gær cellerne og gør gæret ubrugtbar.
If you add salt with yeast destroys you yeast cells and makes fermented ubrugtbar.
så nej.
so no.
rør gær sammen med vand og så kom de andre tørre tingene ingredienser i.
stir yeast with water and then came the other dry ingredients things in.
ubrugtbar = unused (unusable?) ferment.
Perhaps instant yeast is more robust?
Salt is a dandy preservative which wards off the growth of most all nonmarine flora.

Thanks Bill. I will try those separately first and maybe in combination afterwards. It was mentioned in the comments that letting the dough warm up gives it a chance to flatten out. I'm not too worried about the shape of the rolls yet.

ubrugbart was spelled wrong, that's why it didn't get translated. Yes, it means unusable. Ferment should have been translated as yeast. Danes seem to make as many typos and spelling errors, when posting on line, as the rest of us.

Was that white line at the bottom of your sliced roll whole wheat flour? It seems a shame you're not interested in using Durum flour.

My favourite was:

We put the rolls in cold oven: 30 min v / 225 degrees - so you can whack balls at the plate, wake the kids and go to the bathroom together.

from:

Vi sætter bollerne i kold ovn: 30 min v/ 225 grader - så kan man smække bollerne på pladen, vække ungerne og gå i bad samtidig.

Should read: We put the rolls in a cold oven: 30 min at 225 degrees - then you can toss the rolls onto the baking sheet, wake the children and take a bath - all at once.

No whacking balls at plates. No going to the bathroom together. Just taking a bath while the rolls are in the oven.

I read the translation to my DH and he said, "Oh, let's not do that." I'm still giggling.
