On a roll

I’m a massive fan of a certain form of three cornered brown roll they sell in Lidl. I’ve been buying them for years and only noticed the other day that they said “High Protein”. I investigated further and discovered that they actually are made from linseeds and only have 10g of carb per 120g roll.

So today, I had a go at making my own – I couldn’t find a recipe which had that high a concentration of linseeds but I tried this. 150g strong white flour, 200g strong wholemeal flour, 30g oats, 30g golden linseeds, 1 tsp yeast, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp salt – put in bread maker with 200ml milk and 50ml warm water (N would be proud of me here with all these metric measurements). Here comes my favourite trick – put in the bread maker on the ‘pizza’ setting which only takes 45 minutes, but kneads the dough and starts to prove it. Remove from breadmaker, form into rolls and place on a greased baking tray. Leave in a warm place until doubled in size, then brush with milk (or egg). Cook at 200C for 15 to 20 minutes or until brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.

They actually turned out pretty well and were very tasty. A trifle dry though, so next time I will put in more liquid. I also think a higher concentration of linseeds would be good, so remove some flour and add extra of those.
