Instructions:

Start by putting all the things you need carefully together, that works the easiest and you are less likely to forget an ingredient if you work that way.

Have you washed your hands? Is your apron in the right place? All ready?? There we go:

  1. Weigh your ingredients carefully first.  Then start by bringing the dry ingredients together, that is the two types of flour, the salt and the yeast.

  1. Then add the 3 tablespoons of olive oil and mix it through the flour.

  1. Now make a little well in the middle and add some water. Using a spoon, mix the water with the flour just around it. Then add more water and stir well. When the dough gets too heavy to use the spoon, put it on the side, roll your sleeves up and start using your hands.

  1. When all the water is taken up by the flour, take your dough out of the bowl and bring onto a baking mat or a clean table or kitchen top and start kneading it. Use your both hands and put all your strength and weight in it, so it becomes nice and stretchy. If the dough is a bit too sticky to handle easily, throw a little bit of extra flour on and knead it in.

  1. Now the dough needs to be divided into 15 little parts. Do you know your time tables? 3 times 5 equals???  That is right, so start by dividing the dough into 3 parts and then divide each of those further into 5 little parts and count your dough balls. You should have 15 little balls now.
    If you like the bread rolls to are exactly the same size, you will need the scale. Each little ball of dough should weigh 60 grams more or less.

  1. The next step is to form nice little round balls, have a look, this is how I shape them:

  1. Put all your lovely shaped dough balls on the baking sheets, leave them an inch or a few centimeters apart to prevent them to stick to one another after they have risen.
  2. Cover the dough balls with a clean tea towel and put them safe on a warm and draught free place for 45 minutes and have rest…
  3. Have the 45 minutes passed? Have you peeked under the tea towel yet? How do they look? Have they risen? Are they about double in size?? Great!
  4. Switch the oven on now (180 º Celsius), so it can warm up while you take care of the decoration of your lovely bread rolls!
  5. Break the egg in a little bowl or cup and beat it a little with a fork. Find your pastry brush. Take your seeds and a teaspoon as well.
  6. Now gently spread some of the beaten egg on the top of the bread rolls with the pastry brush. Don’t push too hard or they may loose their beautiful shape.

  1. Choose some seeds and use the teaspoon to spread some seeds on the bread rolls. The seeds will stick into the egg you brushed on them. Some will fall of, but that is ok just leave them for now.

  1. When you have finished decorating the rolls and the oven is warm enough, ask an adult to help you put the baking sheets in the oven.
  2. Say thank you, put the timer on 25 minutes and relax!
