The best ever herby yeast rolls

Updated on April 20, 2015
So I was feeling creative this morning and used the exact same recipe and came up with these.  The large loaf is a plaited one. Brushed over with sweet vanilla flavoured milk.

Four simple yeast rolls - these were made with a combination of strong white, strong ground wholewheat and mixed seed and grain flour.

Hope you can see the lovely flower like shape which is filled and oozing with apricot jam.

These take just a little over 30 minutes to make

Ever wanted to make fantastic bread rolls but didn't know how? Or just looked at the complicated time requirements and just couldn't be bothered? Then this recipe is for you. It takes just a little over 30 minutes from start to finish. The ingredients are all usually at hand easily and the results are fantastic. So if you've ever wanted to impress with hot tasty bread rolls these are the ones you should make. They are perfect with soup recipes I've posted previously too for a hearty, healthy meal.



Cook Time

Prep time: 28 min
Cook time: 11 min
Ready in: 39 min
Yields: 12 rolls

Ingredients

  • 1 cup/250 ml water, (warm)
  • 1/3 cup/75 ml oil, (I use sunflower oil)
  • 2 tbsp fast action yeast
  • 1/4 cup/50 g sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp sage, dried (if you want plain rolls just leave this out )
  • 1 tsp marjoram, dried (if you want plain rolls just leave this out)
  • 1 1/2 cups wholewheat flour
  • 2 cups strong white bread flour
  • 1 tsp onion granules, (again this can be avoided if you want plain rolls)
  • 3 tbsp milk, (this is to brush over the rolls. Again, this can be avoided if you like)
  • 6 tsp sesame seeds, (this is to top the rolls if you are using the milk wash. It can be avoided).
  1. Combine the warm water, oil, yeast and sugar in a large bowl and allow it to rest for 15 minutes or so. (If you want it to rise at this speed and it is not warm enough, I just put a cup of water in the microwave oven for 2 minutes to warm up the oven, then put the bowl with the yeast mixture into the microwave for 15 minutes to rest). In the meantime, grease your baking trays.
  2. Once the yeast mixture has risen and there are lots of big bubbles on top, add the salt, egg and flours with the herbs and onion granules and knead it soft and smooth. Add more flour if the mixture is a bit too wet.
  3. Form into 12 balls and place onto the greased baking trays.
  4. Allow the rolls to rest for about 10 - 12 minutes until they are bigger and fluffier. While the rolls are resting, turn on your oven and allow it to pre-heat to 190'c fan assisted/200'c/400'F.
  5. Brush the risen rolls with milk and then sprinkle the sesame seeds on top. Bake for 11 minutes or until golden brown.
