Monet 23/10/10 17:11

I've made carrot rolls before, and I've made poppy seed rolls before, but I've never thought to combine the two. Such a brilliant blending! Thank you for sharing. These would be great alongside a thanksgiving meal.

Unknown 23/10/10 18:47

Wow, those look wonderful. I can just imagine how delicious they would taste hot out of the oven with a little (or a lot) of butter :D
Hope you are having a great weekend.

I never imagined that carrots could be used in dinner rolls. But, your rolls have such a gorgeous orange color and must taste fantastic.

Reeni 25/10/10 02:58

I'm a big fan of carrots and poppy seeds! I feel like you made them just for me! Delicious, Angie!

OohLookBel 25/10/10 03:46

Spelt is such a healthy grain, and those buns look so delicious. I wish I didn't have the 'curse of yeast' hanging over me - anything I make with yeast NEVER works!

Hettar7 25/10/10 04:23

Yumm numm numm. These look good. They sound good. I get they will taste good. I've never tried spelt flour before, but there's always a first time. Thanks for posting these. I can never resist bread. I'm eating Pumpernickle with butter on it now.

Elin Chia 25/10/10 04:26

Angie...great rolls you have there and healthy too. I shall add carrot and poppy to my buns the next time I make them... mouth-eatering already just drooling at it :)

Oh my goodness these are most certainly special. And SO timely. What is it with cooler weather making one crave doughy, bready things? Thanks for sharing.

Magic of Spice 25/10/10 23:51

These are just gorgeous...always a danger for me, I would eat these until there was no more room for my dinner :)

Krishnaveni 26/10/10 01:05

wow that bread looks extremely beautiful

chow and chatter 26/10/10 03:01

wow you make the best breads can smell it from here :-)

Christine 26/10/10 03:11

Hello! I'm dying to make these but am wondering if you can help to give any more information on the flours. I believe I can get a hold of the whole spelt flour, but I'm wondering what that other one is - #360 spelt? Can you give me any clues about what to look for here in the U.S. - is it more finely ground, or more of a "white" spelt (like whole wheat flour vs. whole wheat pastry flour)?

Evan @swEEts 26/10/10 04:04

These look absolutely delicious.. I need to buy some spelt flour the next time I'm at Whole Foods! I wish I could put my hand through the screen and bite into one of these.

Dee 26/10/10 04:20

These look wonderful! There is nothing better than warm rolls right out of the oven.

Biren @ Roti n Rice 26/10/10 04:47

I like those rolls. They look like they have a very tender crumb...yummy!

Angie's Recipes 26/10/10 07:19

Spelt #630 has 11% (more or less) protein content, so something like "white" spelt, if you could find spelt pastry flour, would be great too.

Anonymous 26/10/10 07:57

Your breads look absolutely amazing! so fluffy and soft. Love the flavour combos too!

LimeCake 26/10/10 11:18

wow these look delicious! incredible texture and flavour!

Sanjeeta kk 26/10/10 11:31

Exotic is the only word coming to my mind after looking at these gorgeous baked goodies. Lovely recipe, Angie.

FOODESSA 26/10/10 14:11

I've always disliked those pesky poppy seeds...however...I love the beautiful turnout of those rolls. Angie, you're such a talented baker...wish you'd live closer ;o)so that we could share our talents in the cuisine!

Ciao for now,

Devaki 26/10/10 16:23

I am speechless Angie - Those rolls are knock 'em dead! I have to make these soon :)

Ciao, Devaki @ weavethousandflavors

Stella 27/10/10 00:18

Angie, your breads always look so perfect and wonderful. I might try this, as I read that I should be making my own bread in order to be organically savvy in terms of my pocket book;)!

Hearty Bakes 27/10/10 08:31

now, im really craving for that yummy looking buns with a bowl of soup! Looks pillowy soft,fluffy and like a blooming flower!

Brian Samuels Photography 27/10/10 18:32

My goodness! This looks wonderful! Homemade bread really is the best, isn't it?

denise @ quickies on the dinner table 28/10/10 03:01
