I remember a friend of mine once told me that she baked a blueberry pie to take to a housewarming party. And when she was walking through town with the warm blueberry pie wrapped inside a kitchen towel in her hands, all the men who passed her by were smiling as in love. She wasn’t sure if it was the scent of the warm cake she was carrying or if she just happened to look ravishing that day, but she felt as every passer-by fell under her spell. Funny enough, I got similar admiring looks here at home when I was baking these bread roll baps. Is it true that the way to a man’s heart goes through the stomach?
Easy bread baps recipe:
3 dl water, 7dl white flour (you can also use a mix of white wheat flour, porridge oats, linseed etc.), 1 table spoon of honey or sugar, 1 tea spoon of salt, 50 g of fresh yeast, 2 table spoons of vegetable oil or melted butter.
Break the yeast in lukewarm water. Mix the flour, salt and sugar in a bowl. If you use honey instead of sugar, add it to the warm water. Add the water and vegetable oil into the bowl and mix with your hands until the mixture becomes an elastic pastry. Sprinkle some flour on the table and roll the pastry into a long baguette and cut that into 10-12 pieces.
Roll the pieces into small balls between your hands and place them on a buttered baking tray. Let the baps rise under a towel for about 25 minutes while you preheat the oven to 225c. Bake the baps in the oven for about 9-12 minutes. The baps are at their best with a lump of butter when they are still warm.
