Nothing beats a warm bread roll, fluffy on the inside with just the right amount of crunch in the crust. Follow this recipe for the best dinner rolls you have ever had. The rolls are brushed with a saltwater mixture after shaping and before baking for the unique crunch to the crust. Give the dough plenty of time to rise for moist, fluffy dinner rolls. Serve with plenty of butter and you have the perfect addition to your dinner table.

Ingredients

  • 350 grams bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons dry active yeast (instant)
  • 15 grams butter (cubed)
  • 225 milliliters water (warmed)
  • 100 milliliters water
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the salt, sugar, and yeast and combine.
  3. Cut in the butter until perfectly integrated.
  4. Make a well in the middle of the flour and pour in some warm water. Mix with a fork. Continue adding water little by little until a ball has formed. Then you can start hand kneading. You may find you need more or less water than what the recipe calls for.
  5. Lightly flour a work surface and knead the dough until it is elastic, firm, and no longer sticky.
  6. Transfer the dough to an oiled bowl, cover with a moist cloth, and set in a draftless, warm area to rise.
  7. Preheat the oven to 210 degrees Celsius.
  8. Once the dough has doubled in volume, turn it back out onto a floured surface. Punch the dough down in the middle and knead it into a ball again.
  9. Cut the dough ball into 10 portions. Roll each portion into a ball and set on the prepared baking sheet leaving plenty of room between each roll.
  10. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise another 30 minutes. They are done when you press the tops and they retake their shape afterwards.
  11. Baste the top of each roll with the water/salt mixture. This is what gives them crunch. Optionally, you can make a light slit on the top of each roll.
  12. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until golden and they sound hollow when the bottom is thumped.
  13. Store in a cloth bag for up to 1 to 2 days but do not refrigerate. Alternatively, freeze and reheat in the oven before serving.
