I think they came out pretty good! I followed all the instructions, kneaded, let it rise, knead, let rise, then popped em in the oven. Then I started googling baking rye bread and got scared that the recipe and method I found was too good to be true. Maybe it was beginners luck though because they were delicious. They don't quite keep the same past a day or two though, so eat em quick!
Rye Bread Rolls
As posted by Divine Baking
2 1/2 cups rye flour
4 - 4 1/2 cups white flour
1 tablespoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons yeast
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons honey
2 cups water
- Sift the rye flour and 4 cups white flour into a large bowl
- Add the salt and yeast and whisk to combine
- Create a hole in the center of the flour mixture and add the buttermilk, honey and water.
- Mix until a dough has formed.
- Flour a flat surface and knead the dough for about 10 minutes until soft.
- Place the dough in a oiled bowl, cover and leave to rise for 60 - 90 minutes (until dough has doubled).
- Knead the dough and divide into 10 rolls.
- Place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
- Flatten each roll slightly. Cover with a plastic wrap and leave to rise for 45 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 400 F, and place a pan filled with water on the bottom of the oven (will create steam in oven)
- Sprinkle some flour on the rolls and slash an X in the top of each roll with a sharp knife.
- Bake for 25 - 30 minutes, until the rolls have browned.
- Let cool on a cooling rack.
- Eat them!
