These simply delicious bread rolls are a must make at your next MamaBake session! Not only do they taste amazing, they provide a wonderful way to involve children in the MamaBake process.
We often have a kiddie size table set up with a big lump of risen dough, ready for eager little people to knead and shape into wonderfully imaginative creations! (these were whipped up by the MamaBake Canberra kiddies!)
You can bake them as is, or, after the fun has been had, roll them into more traditional roll shapes before baking.
The recipe is lovingly shared by the Orana Steiner School in Canberra, playgroup, where the bread is used as part of the welcoming ritual at the start of each day. The feel of the dough and the smell of the cooking rolls provide an incredible homely, warmth and comfort to the beginning of every ‘school’ day.
This recipe is for the quantity made for playgroup which makes around 24 rolls. It divides down quite successfully if a smaller quantity is required, or, doubles just as easily for a really, REALLY, big batch!
The dough is incredibly forgiving of being pummelled and lovingly shaped by little hands whilst remaining quite edible!
