EASY BREAD ROLL RECIPE FOR BEGINNERS & SPECIALISTS

Oh how I love baking bread, yes it is so easy. Let me take you on a little bread making journey. This is a perfect sunday project. Get the ingredients and surprise your mum/dad/friend/wife/husband/granny with a delicious fresh baked bread. By the way when we (my bf and me) are invited to a party, we always bake additionally two breads. People love it, once they tasted it they got hooked...they always start asking us if we are bringing bread the next time we come by. Maybe they are just inviting us because of our yummy homemade bread...? :-) 
ingredients
1kg light spelt flour
42 gr fresh yeast
2 tbsp salt
8 tbsp oatmeal
670 ml cold water
1-2 tbsp vegetable oil
baking paper
large bowl  

1# advice:  never be scared to make your own bread, there is no reason to.

how you do it

step 1
Put spelt flour, salt and oatmeal into a large bowl. Crumble in yeast and mix well.
step 2
Form a little hole into the flour mixture and put in the water. With a wooden spoon mix very well together (you also can take a food processor). The dough should have a sticky consistence (like shown on the picture)
step 3
Now it's time to let him rest. For this cover your bowl with some cling wrap or a large trash bag and put it in the refrigerator. The dough will keep fresh for 4 days in there. You can also let him rest outside, till he reaches the double amount.

advice: Dough keeps fresh for about 4 days in the refrigerator (covered) this is perfect for preparing!

step 4
After your dough has risen, preheat your oven to 220°C (428°F) conventional heat with the tray. Lightly spread some oil on your baking paper. With a dough scraper make some hand-sized tappets and put them onto the baking paper. 

advice: You can put them right next to each other, the will bake together but you can make more and the are really easy to break apart. Put a little oil on your dough scraper, so the dough won't stick to it.




step 5
Put  the loaded baking paper onto the hot tray (I always pull the loaded baking paper onto they tray) be sure you are using potholders! and bake them on the lowest rail for about 5 minutes on 220°C (428°F)  and for another 18 minutes on 180 °C (356°F). Bake 5 till 7 minutes longer and you will have a nice crust.
After baking time take out of the oven and let rest on a cooling rack.

advice: Every oven has a different way to bake, so you will have to try out what's you favourite.
Here's a little advice for you: try some beer instead of water, this gives the dough a real good taste. More recipes will be comming soon. Happy baking,  xo xo Jess
