Ultimate Bread Roll Recipe

bread rolls recipe

I made this bread yesterday as I was on a 24-hour fast. If you’re not used to making bread from scratch you should really give it a try.

It is:

  1. easy
  2. healthier that store bread
  3. cheaper that buying
  4. the smell that spreads in the house is heavenly

I fasted yesterday to cut down calories and lose weight . The fast gave me such an energy kick I just had to bake. This is the bread I had for dinner as I ended my fast. Yum.

I never bother with how breads look. It’s the taste that matters. Here it is was my kids who made the rolls and I think they did a pretty good job.





  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 1,5 teaspoon granulated yeast
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoons syrup (please chose one without HFCS)
  • 3 medium sized carrots
  • 2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3,5 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons flax seeds (optional)

Add yeast to the water.

Melt butter.

Peel and grate carrots.

Add all dry in a bowl.

Add all other ingredients (except flax seeds)  and mix until the dough is smooth.

Set aside for 40 min.

Split the dough in 15 pieces and make 15 .

Put them next to each other on a cookie sheet or oven pan covered with parchment paper.

Set aside for 45 min.

Use a pastry brush to add a little water then sprinkle over the flax seeds.

Bake at 350F (175 C) for 20 min.

When they are done take them apart carefully and let them cool on a rack.
