Bran Rolls

I love baking!  As you see- and if you follow me on Facebook-you can tell that I have been busy making and baking breads... different kinds and shapes... What can I say, I love bread!

I didn't have time to do all the posting...here is the recipe for buns I've made for company I had last weekend.

Enjoy!

Bran-rolls

 

Ingredients:

1/4 cup warm milk

3 tsp. active dry yeast

1 tsp. sugar

1/2 cup bran

3/4 cup hot water

1 egg

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 cup water

4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tsp. salt

1 egg, for egg wash

1/4 cup sesame seeds, for topping

1/4 cup poppy seed, for topping


Directions:
Place warm milk into a small bowl; stir in yeast and sugar to dissolve. Let stand in a warm place until foamy.

Place bran in another bowl; pour hot water over it, stir and set aside to cool.

In a large bowl stir together 4 cups of all purpose flour, the whole wheat flour and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together yeast, egg, oil and water. With the mixer on low, add the soaked bran and 1-1/2 cups of flour; beat until well mixed (about 2 minutes).

Add more of the flour as much as you can to form a dough. Remove to a floured board and knead in the remaining of the flour to form a bread like consistency dough. Knead 3-4 minutes, then place dough into a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until it doubles, (about 45-60 minutes).

Punch dough down and divide into 2, then divide each half into 12 pieces. Roll each piece out into a 10-inch rope.

To form the rolls, make a knot in the center and tuck the ends under to form a roll.

Place 2 inch apart on two lightly greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled.
