My friend gave me this recipe the other day and I have tried it this morning. This is a recipe for crusty rolls, that is very easy to make. The secret is, that you start the dough the night before with very little yeast, let the dough rest in the fridge over night and bake it in the morning. ( Or start in the morning for very tasty dinner rolls.) Here are the ingredients:
400g All Purpose Flour
100g Rye Flour
1/2 tsp Yeast
2 tsp Salt
Kneed the dough until it has come together smoothly. Cover the bowl and let the dough rest in the fridge over night. In the morning wet your hands and shape tennis ball sized rolls. They do not need to be well shaped. Bake at 450 F for about 20 minutes.
If you do not have a scale, try 3 cups flour and one cup rye flour with 1 3/4 to 2 cups water. You want a dough that contains somewhat more water than usually. It also tastes very good made with all purpose flour only.
These rolls freeze well, so save yourself the work and make a double batch. (That is, what I should have done….)
