Porridge rolls

Sooo… if you know anything nicer that an oven fresh bread roll with butter let me know. Oh ok, a glass of perfectly chilled white wine on the deck of a yacht in the South of France may come to my mind ( for an obvious reason) but fresh bread rolls come quite high on the list as they are just so so good! Sometimes when we have soup for lunch or dinner we make our own. Those days I make an extra portion of porridge in the morning as porridge rolls are the best! I use four grain porridge for these ( the recipe is from a Finnish porridge package actually) but you could just as well make these from oatmeal. These are our favourite rolls and I hope you like them too.

Porridge rolls

4 dl ready made porridge ( I think about 1 cup flakes & 2 cups water would make it?)

1 packet of dried yeast ( 11g)

1 tsp salt

1 tbls maple syrup

12-14 dl flour ( you can use what you prefer, if you use gluten free oats for the porridge and gluten free flour for this then you get gluten free rolls as you can imagine)

3 dl water

50 butter

1. In the bowl of an electric mixer mix together the porridge, salt , syrup & luke warm water.

2. Mix the dried yeast to a few dl of the flour and add to the mixer.

3. Add the rest of the flour while mixing, the less flour the softer rolls, but they must have enough for you to be able to roll them.

4. Mix in the butter and let stand in a warm place without draft covered with a clean kitchen towel for about 30 mins. until risen to double it´s size.

5. Knead the dough and cut in to similar sized portions. Roll in to rolls and let rise on the baking sheet for another 30 mins. covered again.

6. Make a mixture of water and some maple syrup and brush the rolls. Add some seeds or oats as decorations and bake in a 250°c oven for 12-15 min.

Löysin Nykistä uudestaan merkin, jonka olin aivan unohtanut, kun törmäsin heidän liikkeeseensä ihan sattumalta. Merkki on niin kiva ja varmasti myös Skandinaaviseen makuun, että ajattelin jakaa sen kanssanne. En ole ihan varma postittavatko he suoraan nettisivujen kautta Suomeen, mutta liikkeen myyjä sanoi, että se onnistuu varmasti jos heille laittaa sähköpostia.

When Cotton Candy was a baby I found this cute little New York based brand in Helsinki in a store that no longer exists. Then for a few years I forgot all about it until I stumbled upon their Tribeca store on a work trip about a month ago. It´s such an easygoing but pretty brand that I wanted to share. They do have an online shop but I´m not sure if they ship to Finland. But the teller in the boutique said that they sure would if you emailed them. I´m short one UV shirt for the summer and think I will pick this up on my next trip. Last time I bought the sweetest tunics and adorable necklaces for the girl and they match their swimsuits perfectly too. I also loved these dresses & the easy breezy flutter sleeve summer tops! In the shop they also had cute little toys and accessories for kids. A very New York brand if you ask me. A little classic mixed with a little modern, good quality fabrics and not very flashy. Not so childlike but still more than appropriate for kids. They also have great things for boys and especially for babies.

Monday

by Sofia   -   in Random

Oliko sinulla hyvä viikonloppu? Meidän viikonloppuumme mahtui niin paljon ihania hetkiä, että sain siitä hyväntuulisuutta koko viikoksi ( toivottavasti!). Jos kuitenkin maanantai tuntuu vähän tökkivän, niin keräsin alle hieman inspiroivia lausahduksia antamaan lisäpotkua päivään.

After the loveliest weekend it´s sometimes a little hard to fall head first on a Monday so I wanted to give you some extra inspiration ( click  once or twice to get the picture larger)…

Monday inspiration

I personally do not dislike Mondays. I think they are like a pair of fresh clean sheets. A new week, a new beginning, a fresh new outlook after a good weekend or a chance to get back in to normal life after a weekend you want to forget. And if your Monday turns out to be a bad one then after the work day is over I suggest you watch some Grace & Frankie on Netflix, season 2 is up and I love it. Grace is just fantastic ( maybe a bit too boozy to my liking but fantastic) with the best outfits and Frankie is hilarious. It is guaranteed it will cheer you up after a not so fabulous day!

Hyvää alkavaa viikkoa ja toivottavasti kahvisi on kuumaa, vahvaa ja se ei lopu heti kesken!
