Wholemeal rolls

Very easy, very tasty, very quick and healthy! :) And, what is a big advantage, it is possible to heat them up in a microwave before eating or freeze :) And they're absolutely mouthwatering after a short meeting with microwave... Recipe from:

  • 2 boiled and smashed potatoes
  • 420 g of wholemeal flour
  • 1,5 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 and 1/4 teaspoon of instant yeast (or 14 g of fresh yeast)
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 glass of milk
  • 40 g of butter
  • 3/4 glass of milk
  • 1 egg - separately egg yolk and white
Additional ingredients:
  • 4-6 tablespoons of favourite grains
  • poppy - to sprinkle the tops

  1. Peel and boil potatoes. Smash, take 3/4 glass of them, put aside.
  2. Take a big bowl, put flour, salt, yeast, sugar and 1/2 of milk inside. Stir.
  3. Take a pot, put 3/4 of milk and butter inside. Boil on a low heat till the butter melts (it needs to be warm, not hot, not 100C). 
  4. Prepare a clean surface - sprinkle it with flour.
  5. Make some empty space in the middle of the bowl, put milk with butter inside and add potatoes. Stir. Add egg yolk and grains. Knead the dough (it will be sticky).
  6. Put the dough on a spinkled surface and knead for another 10 minutes (it is highly probable that some more flour will be needed) till the dough is smooth, flexible and not sticky. 
  7. Put it in a bowl, cover with clean cloth and put aside for 1,5 hours.
  8. Take a baking tray, grease it and put a baking paper all over it. 
  9. Start preheating the oven to 175C.
  10. Take the dough, start forming rolls in a desired size* and put on a baking tray.
  11. Beat the egg white and put some of it on every roll. Sprinkle every roll (for example) with poppy.
  12. Put the baking tray with rolls in the middle height of the oven, bake for 30 minutes.
  13. Take out from the oven, wait for 5 minutes and separate the rolls. Cool down.
  14. Bon appetit! :)
* They shouldn't grow much which is why I advice making 6-10 bigger rolls
