Ingredients and instructions

Making bread rolls is extremely easy, you only need 5 ingredients for the dough, which you almost certainly already have at home.

These are:

  • flour – we used semi-white flour, but you can also use white instead,
  • dry yeast,
  • salt,
  • water and
  • sugar.

Yeast dough is extremely easy to prepare, we use it for a huge variety of recipes, from savory to sweet dishes, and it works really well. When you have the dough ready, it’s time for the best part: shaping the rolls! Once you make the rolls, coat them with a mixture of warm water and molasses.  Molasses is a very thick syrup that is a byproduct of sugar refining process and is very healthy, unlike sugar. It contains a lot of vitamin B6 and various minerals, it’s especially high in iron, calcium, magnesium and manganese.

Finally, coat the buns with various seeds, which also make these buns more nutritious as they contain a lot of protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, they are also very tasty and give the rolls a wonderful look.

    Hi there ,
    Thanks for the recipe, it’s quick and easy. The mini bread buns came out perfect. Love the way you did the seeds. Many times when we buy breads with seeds they fall out before you could even eat. But this time I had no issues with your recipe with seeds. Loved it they were well tucked into the buns and was easy to eat without them falling.
