Breakfast Rolls Broetchen
Waking up early today I had a grave for fresh breakfast rolls, and since we don't have the baker "just next street" like in Germany or Switzerland I decided to give it a try and bake them myself. Easy, not much work, only the time for proofing the dough needs a little patience.


  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp dried yeast
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 350 ml milk
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 20 g poppy seeds (optional)


  1. Mix flour, salt and yeast in a bowl.
  2. Add butter at room temperature and crumble it into the flour mix.
  3. Slowly add the lukewarm milk to the mix while kneading it to a soft dough.
  4. Knead the dough for about 10 min, on a lightly floured working surface.
  5. Cut the dough into 8 - 12 pieces of same amounts.
  6. Form small rolls and place on a tray with baking paper (or floured if you have no baking paper).
  7. Cover with a clean dish towel and proof until doubled in size, for about 1 hour.
  8. Preheat oven at 450 F (230º C).
  9. After the dough has risen to approximately it's double volume, with a sharp knife cut a slash on each of them.
  10. Use a clean, soft pastry brush to apply some milk for the glaze.
  11. Sprinkle with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, or coarse salt.
  12. Bake in preheated oven for 12 - 15 min, till the rolls are golden brown.
  13. Cool on a wire rack.

In the late 1970s when the government mandated we get the fat out of our food, the food industry responded by pouring more sugar in. The result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control.
