Dear followers, we have nearly survived January. Like my old teacher used to say 'you survive January then rest of the year is a piece of cake'. Well, it is the last day of January, the daylight hours are getting longer, the spring is closer, the temperatures will soon rise again, and summer will come... I am trying to convince myself here, sorry. To celebrate, I decided to bake, not quite a cake, but delicious homemade rolls, that brings to my mind home, childhood, and all the warm and fuzzy feels.
The recipe is simple and even forming the rolls is easier when you finish the dough with the oil instead of adding it to the water. Instead of using sugar to feed the yeast, I used the acacia-honey. I also used steel-cut oats, because that is what I have at home for the porridge. There is a wide difference between the amounts of flour to add. This is because in different altitudes you might need more or less flour. The important point is to leave the dough soft before rising it. Add the flour carefully with a little bit at the time.
The dough makes 16 pieces. This bread is tasty for breakfast, for a snack, for a lunchbox, with a soup or a stew... Here is the recipe for the vegetable soup I made for dinner with the rolls.
I hope you enjoy the recipe and the hope that arrives with the beginning of February...
'Till next time
