Closeup   These German style rolls were adapted from a recipe on Karin Hanseata’s blog.  Her blog is filled with inspired baking so I urge you to visit and explore her adventures.

I found these rolls to by very similar to Kaiser style rolls with a nice hard crust and soft interior, perfect for sandwiches.


I of course had to change a couple of things since I just can’t seem to help myself.  I use 150 grams of my apple/cherry Yeast Water in place of part of the water and I cut the yeast down to 5 grams to compensate.  I also made 8 slightly larger rolls versus the 10 she suggested.

For the toppings I used toasted onions, black sesame seeds, Asiago cheese and flax seeds.  I decided to try to get in the holiday spirit so I used a snowflake cookie cutter on some of the rolls for added effect.

I was very happy with the way these turned out.  The use of the 00 Caputo flour really creates a unique crumb structure in these rolls and I’ve been eating sandwiches all week on these tasty rolls.
