For those of you in America, I used 4 cups of flour, and 1 stick of butter. These rolls were incredibly soft and rose very well! I didn't get the buttery flavor that the other people mentioned though. My husband thought they were a little on the bland side, but he still gobbled them up with his soup. We made them as a side to Cumin Get It Chicken Soup. The next time I make these I might add a little butter extract and a pinch of garlic salt. Thanks Noo!
Perfect rich, tender rolls. I did as some of the other reviewers suggested and waited until the rolls were in the pan before adding the egg wash and seeds. I used 4 cups of flour, and added a couple of extra tablespoons because my dough was very sticky. I enjoyed them with both types of seeds, but they also work with just the sesame. Great recipe. Thanks for posting!
The only change I made was to use black sesame seeds and white sesame seeds. They didn't rise a lot because I guess it was too cold in the kitchen. But they are moist and yummy. Thanks Noo :) Made for PRMR tag game
These were great dinner rolls. I had a little difficulty in getting the amount of flour right after converting it to U.S. measuring standards. But I finally got the dough right during the kneading step. And I did as one review suggested and brushed the tops with the egg wash and sprinkled with seeds after I put the rolls in the baking pan. That worked out well. I used both poppy seeds and toasted sesame seeds, and I really liked that combination. My rolls didn't taste very buttery though, but I liked them anyway. I know I'll make these often but will increase the amount of butter a bit. Thanks for a great recipe, Noo. Made for Gimme 5 tag game.
DELICIOUS BUTTERY ROLLS!!! We loved these rolls. I only made 1/2 the recipe, 8 rolls, which for in the US was 2 cups of flour. I already had the main dish in the oven at 350 degrees, so I cooked these at that temperature for 30 minutes and they were perfect. I made some with the sesame seeds and half with the poppy seeds. Thanks for sharing this wonderful and easy recipe Noo. Made for 123 Tag.
A fine versatile bread dough that would work well for a lot of uses. You could bake this as a loaf. I used nigella seeds, sesame seeds and golden flax seeds as toppers. I also used 100g whole wheat flour for part of the flour, I think that helps boost the flavor.
These certainly are easy and delicious! Reading an earlier review, I put the rolls in the baking dish before using the egg wash and seeds, and I rolled and shaped them by hand. They turned out perfectly and are very tasty .. DH likes to put butter on them but I like them just like that. Not wanting them to go stale, I have frozen them, today I took one out of the freezer and took it to work, by the time I wanted to eat it, it had defrosted fully and tasted just as good as pre-frozen! This works well for us, and I will make these rolls again, convenient, attractive and good to eat! Thanks, Noo!
These were very easy to make and they turned out delicious. I don't have a kitchen scale, so I looked up online the equivalent of 1 lb. of flour ( my searches said 4 to 4.5 cups) and figured I'd go with the 4.5 cups since the recipe calls for 17 plus ounces. Of course, after the dough was already rising, I noticed that there was an equivalent right on the side of my bag of bread flour, which said 1 lb.=3.5 cups. That said, I don't think my dough was too stiff; I thought it came out perfect and was easy to work with. The rolls did come out a little more dense than I expected (maybe because of the flour), but they were still delicious served with Absolutely the Best Amish Beef Stew and the family gobbled them up. We didn't put butter on them...just used them to dip in the beef stew gravy. I only used seeds on half of the rolls, because half of our family doesn't like them. Also, I swore I had poppy seeds and couldn't find them anywhere, so I used regular and black sesame seeds. My bake time was more like 20 minutes, so make sure you check them early! Thanks for posting this...I'm so glad I tried them and will make them often. (P.S. I did the egg wash, sprinkling and cutting into pieces in that order, but they got kind of messed up when I transferred them to my baking dish. I think next time I'd cut them first, move them to the baking dish and then do the egg wash and seeds.)
These turned out well even though I almost had a catastrophe when I discovered at the end of the initial mixing in the machine that the dough was more like a thick flour soup. Twice I added more flour and started the mixing over again, which could have caused problems as well with overmixing. The resulting dough was still extremely sticky and my DGDS and I had to spray our hands with spray oil to form the rolls. The girls had a ball making the rolls and sprinkling them with the sesame and poppy seeds. The measurement converter here at the website did not give me the correct amount of flour, I'm afraid. In the future I will increase the flour to be at least between 3 to 4 cups of flour. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
