Morning Bread Rolls for Lazy Bakers




About: I'm a biologist interested in all things sciency. I love to figure out how things work and to make my own stuff, be it food, woodworking, electronics or sewing.

These bread rolls are super easy to make, and require only minutes of actual work. Make the dough in the evening, bake in the morning, and breakfast is ready.

Step 1: What You'll Need

6dl cold water.
10-15 g fresh yeast or one teaspoon dry yeast.
2 tea spoons salt.
2 tea spoons sugar or honey.
300 g rye flour.
480 g wheat flour.

Measuring cup

We use cold water for the yeast, because we want it to start slowly as the dough heats to room temperature. After all, we don't need it to be ready before morning. You can of course use other combinations of flour, or just go for pure wheat if you prefer.

Step 2: Mix It All and Go to Sleep.

Yepp. It really is that easy.
Dissolve the yeast in the water and mix the water with the flour and sugar. No kneading needed.
Cover the bowl with some cling film, a plastic bag or a wax cloth, and put a towel over to make it nice and cozy for the yeast.
Now you can crawl into bed and let the yeast do its thing until morning.

Step 3: Slice and Bake

When you get up in the morning, put the oven on at 250°C. Spread some flour on a surface of your choise, and tip the dough out of its resting place. Pat it flat with your hands to roughly 2 cm thickness and slice it up with a knife or a pizza wheel. Put the pieces on a baking tray. If you wish, brush a little water on and sprincle with sunflower seeds.

Put the tray in the oven and turn the heat down to 225°C. Bake for aproximately 12 minutes.

Now you are ready for a nice breakfast. Enjoy.

    Hi. there is no rice flour here, but rye. If you wish to use only wheat, simply replace the 300 grams of rye with wheat and use 780 grams of wheat flour.

    I can't wait to try this. I love homemade bread but HATE the kneading. I may try making it for dinner instead. I'll mix up the dough in the morning before I head out and then pop them in the oven in the evening as I finish the rest of dinner. Voila! Hot fresh bread to go with our evening meal.

    I love premade doughs. Just throw it in the oven. No effort or brain power required early in the morning.
