Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

October 31, 2016

Whole Wheat Dinner RollsI have to say this has become one of my all-time favourite bread recipes and it’s all thanks to Marco at the Pastry Training Centre in Vancouver for sharing this recipe with us. Bread making should be a very relaxing experience and something that should be done with care and attention. I find kneading dough very therapeutic and it helps to relieve any stresses the day may have brought with it. And not forgetting that first slice of freshly baked bread makes everything right with the world! As you can see from the picture the recipe can easily be adapted to make loaves or baguettes but will require a slightly longer baking time. Enjoy! ~J

Ingredients
  • 480g Anita’s Organic Unbleached White Flour
  • 330g Anita’s Organic Whole Wheat Flour Fine Grind or Stoneground (Red Fife also works well)
  • 14g salt
  • 14g fresh yeast (or 7g of dried)
  • 14g of butter (olive oil also works well)
  • 24g sourdough starter (for flavour)
  • 520ml warm water

Fig & Walnut Bread

Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls
This loaf requires very little kneading and effort. Based on some of the recipes by Jim Lahey – the no knead king of bread making – the longer fermentation period helps to develop a fabulous flavour. This bread makes a delicious breakfast treat’ lightly toasted and spread with a little butter or coconut butter. ~J

He toils away all year producing delicious artisanal sour dough breads for our delectation. He kindly shared with us a delicious Raisin & Fennel Loaf. You’ll need a scale and a little time but it is so worth the wait. Thanks for sharing! Magpies Bakery is now located at 5669 Vedder Road Chilliwack along with The Curly Kale Eatery. A perfect stop for lunch next time you are visiting Chilliwack. Enjoy! ~J

Whole Wheat Dinner RollsWe’ve had a lot of fun in the last few weeks making bread in the test kitchen. Bread of all shapes and sizes, from Artisan Spelt & Kamut bread to a three day Sourdough, a no knead Red Fife bread to a rustic 100% Einkorn loaf. The following recipe adapted from the ‘Savoring Today’ website is a very tasty French bread and perfect for any occasion. To me you can’t beat that first slice of bread from a fresh loaf, still warm from the oven whether it’s dipped in olive oil & balsamic vinegar, caressed with butter or spread with your favourite homemade organic jam, that first slice is unbeatable! And most importantly the bakers reward for the all the effort put in to making such deliciousness. Enjoy! ~J

  • 2 cups warm water — 110°

indulgence-webThis recipe has to be up there in my Top 10 of desserts and will definitely be gracing our table at some point (or maybe even multiple times!!) over the upcoming festive holidays. It can be enjoyed just as a cake – or elevate it to a succulent dessert with the addition of the Toffee Sauce. Either way it definitely needs to be on your ‘I must try that’ list.
