Those dinner rolls, made from egg white enriched rye dough, have a really shiny and beautiful crust, partly because of overnight proofing in the fridge, partly due to the egg white wash applied prior to baking at high temperature with steam.

  • 120 g Bread flour
  • 45 g Dark rye flour
  • 165 g Water
  • 2 g Fresh yeast
  • 80 g Wholegrain rye flour
  • 80 g Dark rye flour
  • 165 g Bread flour
  • 130 g Water
  • 30 g Egg white
  • 1 tsp Malt extract
  • 6 g Fresh yeast
  • 8 g Salt
  • 2 tbsp Poppy seeds
  • 1/2 Egg white
  • 2 tbsp Water

  1. Dissolve the fresh yeast in the water. Stir in bread and rye flours until well combined. Cover and leave it at room temperature for 2 hours, then transfer to the fridge for 12 hours.
  2. Place all the dough ingredients together with starter in the mixing bowl of your stand mixer. Stir at low speed until all ingredients have been incorporated, then increase the speed and mix until the dough gathers into a ball. Add more water, a tablespoon at a time, if too stiff.
  3. Cover with a plastic and set aside until it doubles in size, 1-2 hours. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface. Lightly press down the dough and shape into a round. Divide the dough into 10-15 pieces. Shape each piece of dough into a round or an oval. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover and proof until double in bulk. This will take about 90 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 230C/450F and place an old baking pan on the bottom rack. Combine egg white and water in a bowl. Brush the top of bread rolls with egg wash and sprinkle with the poppy seeds. Slash a 1/4-inch/5-mm deep cut across the top of each roll. Place rolls in the oven on the next shelf up, pour 1 cup of water into the old baking pan and close the door quickly. Bake for about 20 minutes until richly brown.

These look absolutely fantastic, Angie! Browned to perfection, and the poppy seeds give them such great color and texture.

Such beautiful rolls, Angie. You are certainly an accomplished bread maker. I'm not sure if I can get fresh yeast in Toronto, but I remember my Mom using it.

Sam @ My Carolina Kitchen 15/11/11 12:48

If I had to chose one bread in the world, I would chose rye. It's my all time favorite, even above a French baguette. Your rolls are fabulous Angie.

Elisabeth 15/11/11 15:14

Just love the perfect starter recipe, and the way you added all those poppy seeds, and not just sprinkled on! I'll take a dozen of those, please:DDD

Angie, I love making bread and make several kinds of rolls, but it has never occurred to me to make RYE rolls. Must make these soon. I was just thinking I need to use up my poppy seeds, so I just need to pick up some rye flour.

vianney 18/11/11 16:39

We had poppy seed waffles yeasterday and they were delish, but these little rolls look too amazing to pass up. I must make these for our weekend lunch!! thanks
