“Charm” rolls (Sat 19.12)

Rolls using the IKEA  charm apple slicer. Done with a combination of 3 flours.


  • 100 g wholemeal rye flour (coarse)
  • 150g organic wholemeal flour (soft pastry flour in this case)
  • 250g white bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 30 g butter
  • 20 g fresh yeast
  • about 300g water

1. Mix the three flours with the salt. Rub in the butter.

Crumble the yeast in some of the flour, add most of the water. Mix both to a fairly stiff dough. Turn out on a work surface and knead for 3 minutes.

Return to the bowl and leave to rise for 30 minutes.

2. Divide into 8 more or less equal parts. Form each of them in a small ball.

Flatten the ball to a (hamburger like) flat disk, about 1 cm thick.

Transfer to a greased or floured baking plate.

Brush each of discs with some milk and sift a thin layer of  flour over them (not much difference on the picture)

Press each of them with the the apple slicer (all the way down).

Leave to rise for some 40 minutes to an hour.

3. Bake in a pre heated oven at 220 C for about 22 minutes. As these rose a bit fast, I left out the pre-heating of the oven, and started in a cold oven for about 26 min. In any case “till golden brown”.

Leave to cool on a wire rack.
