Been wanting to try this recipe for ages. Finally got around to it. Made one mistake as I never compinsated for my starter. Should have either added more flour or cut back on the water in the recipe. Other then that I think it well.
For my oven I used 350F for my baking temp. Adjust yours as you see fit.
One loaf of bread and six rolls

4 1/2 cups bread flour
1 package yeast (3 grams of instant/rapid rise yeast)
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 teaspoon malt extract (can substitute molasses)
1 egg
1 egg white
1 Tablespoon shortening


  • Place flour into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook.
  • Add the yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix until well blended.
  • Pour in the warm water and malt extract (or molasses if using). Mix for 1 minute until a smooth batter forms.
  • Add the egg, egg white, and shortening and knead until the it forms a smooth dough.
  • This may require you to add a little more flour or water depending on the consistency. You want the dough to just stick to the bottom of the bowl as it is kneaded. Not the sides.
  • Place in a greased bowl and allow to double in size
  • Punch the dough down and allow to double again
  • Place the dough on a floured table and roll into a cylinder about 12” long
  • Cut into 12 pieces and shape into a roll or hot dog bun shape
  • Place on baking sheet
  • Cover loosely with greased plastic wrap and allow to double
  • While buns are rising heat oven to 450 degrees
  • Five minutes before baking place a pan with one cup of hot water on the bottom rack
  • Bake until the rolls are crispy and brown. 20-30 minutes
Mmm brat rolls.
It must be the amount of daylight not temps driving the urge for bread making?
Today, I proofed a sourdough rye bread and put in the icebox for a 3 day ferment.
Planning to do a batch or brat rolls tomorrow. Hmm interesting recipe. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
