It isn’t often that a recipe surprises me and gets me this excited! What am I so excited about? I have finally created a delicious spelt dinner roll that is light and airy and isn’t as dense as a brick! What’s even better is that they only take 30 minutes to make from start to finish! These are yeast rolls and typically you have to allow the rolls to proof (or rise) for several hours. Well this recipe takes out all the wait time and will have you just as excited as I am….for real!!
How do I achieve creating these rolls in such little time? I do so by soaking the yeast for 15 minutes. This speeds up the process of the yeast allowing it to rise much more quickly. I simple add the warm water, yeast, Rapadura Organic Whole Sugar or Organic Sucanat and oil. I allow it to sit for 15 minutes and then add in the flour, egg, and salt. I allow the mixer to knead for 2 minutes and the dough is ready to roll into 12 balls as shown in this picture above.
After the balls are formed allow to sit for 10 more minutes and then cook in a 400°F oven for another 10 minutes or until they turn slightly golden brown on the top. Brush the tops with a little melted butter and sprinkle with poppy or sesame seeds. Serve warm and enjoy!

There is something seriously wrong with the measurements of this recipe. It is just a watery gluggy mess. I had to add about another cup of flour to the mixture to make it even closely resemble dough.
Exactly my experience
I am enjoying this recipe. It’s working well. Thank you.
Not sure about this.A lot of the comments question the amounts of the ingredients.Here in the UK we only use cups to drink from ,measuring ingredients by kilos, grammes* and litres (or pounds,ounces,pints,tablespoons & teaspoons).Many seem to find the amounts result in sticky or soggy dough,so I’ll dwell before attempting this recipe.
I wish the US would use proper measurements!
*we spell some words differently too!

Hi! Just wanted to comment because I just made these and I am so impressed with the recipe! These are lovely and so easy to make. The only thing is that the recipe is more like 45 mins, and not 30, from start to finish. Which it fine too, easy to find things to do during the “resting” periods. I wanted a more substantial roll so I made 8 instead of 12 and baked for 2 mins longer. They are gorgeous and taste great. Thank you! ?
I just made them. The dough was very wet, so I added more flour. I did bake them for 15 minutes because I added so much more flour. They turned out super delicious! I added the “everything Bagel” spices and man are they good!

Following instructions to a tee I found the mix was easy to work with, but I think I’m going to let these rise for an hour before I bake they didn’t grow not on bit 10 min is just not doing it for me at least, they have great flavor
