German Style WEIZENBRÖTCHEN Bread

25 Apr

Main A few days ago my wife decided to make her delicious meat sauce and I volunteered to make a bread to go with it.  I didn’t have time to create a starter so I made a straight dough based on the German Style rolls I have made before which I posted about here.

I of course had to change it up a little since that’s kind of what I like to do.  I added some freshly ground whole Kamut flour and used honey instead of sugar.

I wanted a nice light crunchy bread that would be good to mop up the heavy tomato based meat sauce and this did just the trick.

The Kamut gave the bread a little extra nutty flavor while adding a nice yellow hue to the final bread.

For a relatively quick bread without a starter this really did come out pretty good and is worth a try.
