Fresh rolls for breakfast
Sleeping late on the weekend is such a wonderful luxury!
Well, ok, make that sleeping late-ish, seeing that puppy love still insists on waking me up the moment she opens her
Another luxury is not to have to go to the shop with the rest of Namibia on a Saturday morning.
So when my daughter wanted brötchens (this is what rolls are called here) for breakfast, I told her to bake them herself.
She was quite enthusiastic about the idea, and it was fun and easy to do.
Here is what you need to make about 8 rolls:
4 cups of flour
1 tablespoon butter
a pinch of salt
1 packet of dry yeast
250 ml (8.45 oz) milk
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (356 Fahrenheit). Heat the milk until slightly warm, mix all the ingredients and kneat until they form a soft dough. Cover and let rise in a warm spot for about 20 minutes.
Form little (or bigger) rolls and cut a cross at the top.
If you want to you can add sunflower seeds, poppy seeds or pumpkin seeds to the dough or to the top of the rolls. That suggestion unfortunately went no-where in our household...
Bake until golden brown, which I guess took about 15 minutes. I forgot to look at my watch when I put them in so I am not very sure about the time. But you will see when they are done :-).
Enjoy your breakfast!
Lots of love, lots of sunshine and a wonderful day to you :-),
