Total time: 90 minutes to prepare dough, 15 minutes to bake
Makes 8 bread rolls
These bread rolls are best eaten the day they are made. They aren’t as fresh the next day.
Ingredients: 2 teaspoons of yeast 2 tablespoons of maple syrup ½ cup of lukewarm water 2 cups of organic four (or use unbleached whole wheat flour) 1 teaspoon of pHresh salt 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
Actions: 1. Put the yeast, maple syrup, and water into a cup. Stir, cover, and keep in a warm spot for 10 minutes. 2. Sift the flour into a glass bowl that is at warm room temperature, and sprinkle with salt. Mix until blended. 3. Make a well in the middle of the flour, and pour the yeast mixture into the well and begin combining. Form into soft dough. 4. Turn your dough onto a floured board and knead well, for at least 5 minutes. Form into one ball. 5. Use extra-virgin olive oil to grease a bowl. Then place the dough (un-creased or smooth side up) into the bowl and rub oil over the dough. 6. Cover the bowl with a cotton cloth and keep in a warm spot. Leave until the dough has doubled in size. 30 minutes to 1 hour. 7. Turn dough ball onto a floured board and knead again for 5 minutes until a tough consistency is achieved. Divide the dough into six equal parts and knead each part into a ball. 8. Place the dough balls close together on a baking sheet. Place uncovered in a warm place and allow to rise again by ¼ inch. This will take 10–20 minutes. Preheat oven to 465°F while waiting for dough to rise again. 9. Bake at 465°F for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 180°F and bake for another 5–10 minutes, until the rolls have risen and are slightly golden brown.
