I love Saturdays, Dear Husband loves Saturday, the kids love Saturdays, really, who doesn’t? Saturdays are Shabbat and Shabbat means rest…. Saturday means sleeping late, staying in our pajamas for hours (if we don’t have any specific plans) and most importantly, family breakfast!
I have written about it before and really the family breakfast is something that we all really look forward to. We have been doing it for years now so that I think we are allowed to call it a tradition!
The eating is great, obvious, but also there is something so rewarding in just sitting together, talking…
Saturday morning family breakfast normally means home baked bread. Once in a while some other kind of baked goods or pancakes, but mostly it is all about that bread!
Lately I have been using this recipe for these cold raised rolls from one of my favorite blogs Valdemarsro (unfortunately, it is only in Danish). The great thing about this recipe, is that the dough is really easy to mix together in the evening and that they are really easy to form and bake in the morning.
So for those who have yet to develop the superpower that is called Danish, here is a translation of the recipe:
Cold Raised Rolls (makes about 12)
½ liter cold water
20 grams yeast
3-4 dl wheat flour
5 dl whole meal flour
1 dl rye grits (or oats, nuts or seeds)
1 teaspoon salt
In the evening: Mix the yeast into the cold water. Add the whole meal flour and the grits (or whatever you choose to add). Mix with a wooden spoon, then add 3 dl of the wheat flour, if needed add more. The dough should be so that you are still able to mix it with the spoon but still not too liquid.
Cover the bowl with cling film or a plastic bag and keep it overnight in the fridge.
In the morning: Turn on the oven – on the warm air function and maximum heat. Using a spoon place the dough on a baking sheet with baking paper and brush the rolls with water.
When the oven is warm, turn the temperature down to 225 Degrees Celsius and bake for 15 minutes.
The result is really yummy rolls, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and totally worth it 🙂
What is your weekend tradition?
