Bread rolls

by Sofia   -   in Cooking  Good things for kids


These super easy bread rolls were made by Cotton Candy and her friend on Sunday. We served them with my sweet potato and ginger soup ( the recipe is here on the blog). I have shared a porridge roll recipe before but these are perhaps even easier ( or just as easy).

Bread Rolls

5 dl lukewarm milk, water or sour milk

10 dl of bread roll flour ( whole wheat)

2 tsp salt

2 tbls maple syrup

11g ( one sachet) dry yeast

1. Mix the dry ingredients. Add lukewarm milk/water, maple syrup & oil. Knead it all in a stand in mixer or by hand.

2. Let the dough rise under a clean towel until about doubled in size.

3. Roll the dough in to whatever shapes you prefer ( as you can see the girls made some teddies etc.). Let it rise on the baking sheet under the towel for a while.

4. Use a maple syrup and water or an egg wash on the rolls and bake in an 225°c oven for about 10-15 minutes depending on your roll size.






Enjoy warm with butter! Or they make great sandwiches to go filled with salad, turkey or cheese and cucumber & tomato.

How was your weekend? Ours was spot on lovely. Mr Espresso was closing down the island house for winter. Which in itself is always a little sad and as we have been renovating the house a little the past few years we had to close it a little earlier this year as there is yet some remodelling going on. But it will pay in the end, I know that. Anyhow on Friday as I had the day off ( I was working on Saturday instead) I started my day at my friends new house with an after gym breakfast. Such a quaint area she moved to. Love it! After school & home work the girls and I headed to Espoo ( the lovely suburbs) as Cotton Candy had some dance performances there at a mall with her new dance group. We had such a good time and went for sushi and some shopping afterwards. As I don´t drive a car and we live right in the centre of Helsinki we don´t end up at malls or mega super markets too often. So we were super excited all three of us. The metro from Helsinki centre right in to the mall took about 20 minutes. We may very well go again just for fun! I even found a pretty new table cloth ( at Eurokangas if you like it too and just 10€/m).

On Saturday the girls got to hang out with my mom & dad as I had to work. And I´m just saying that it was quite nice to be home alone for a night. I poured myself a glass of rosé wine ( we had an opened bottle in the fridge from almost two weeks ago but it was fine) and rented a movie from Apple tv that no one else in my family would like to watch. Then I even got to read in bed!

On Sunday we had two little girls for a playdate. Bubble Gum´s bestie moved to another school for the first two grades so we try to organise playdate for them frequently. They both love to play with dolls, Barbies etc. so they are always off to their dream world the second they start playing. Cotton Candy and her friends made bread rolls for lunch ( I made the sweet potato ginger soup) and chocolate fudge milkshakes for dessert. So everyone was having fun and I just let them make a huge mess for once. It gave me time to sneak in to our bedroom to drink a cappuccino & to write this post for you. If you want to see photos of the playdate table setting etc. you can find it all in my Instagram stories ( table settings).

For some more frivolous happy thoughts. I love the new console I got for my birthday from Bukowski´s antique auctions. Is it not lovely. I hope it finds an even better spot in the new home. It really looks even better with flowers on it. And it would need a mirror or a painting behind it but that will need to wait for the new place too.

Well not quite the sweaters themselves but we tuned some basic sweaters with letters for the girls to personalise them a little. They turned out so nicely they got a lot of lovely comments on Instagram so I though I would share the easy tutorial. I bought the very basic pastel crew necks here. And the Liberty print monograms I have bought from Liberty of London whilst visiting there, but you can probably find cute monogram letters from any fabric store. Then it´s as easy as ironing the patch on as you probably already guessed. My kind of tutorial that is. The sweatshirts were so inexpensive that after they are small I might just cut the letters out and re-use them.






Have a great day!
