How to make Sourdough Dinner Roll wreath?
You need plan two day for making this dinner rolls. First day make the roll dough and second day bake. First in the morning make leaven and then dough by afternoon. By late evening dough will be ready for shaping. You need to keep in mind following steps to make beautiful wreath of dinner rolls which is going to be star of dinner table.
For rolls that are uniform in size, use a digital scale. Weigh all the dough together, divide that number by how many rolls you need, and then use the scale to make all the rolls that size.
To get a perfect circle, trace around an 9-inch cake pan onto a sheet of parchment paper. Then flip the parchment over so the pencil marks are underneath but the circle still shows through. Use the circle as a guide when placing the rolls on the sheet pan.
Brushing on an egg wash (1 large egg + 1 teaspoon water whisked together) before baking will result in a shiny and more golden crust.
I have tried two version of dinner roll wreath one with adding pepper and parmesan cheese and second one without any addition.
If you want you can add herbs or spices of your choice, I think, parsley or rosemary or thyme will be good.
Make sure to bake the dinner roll wreath lined in parchment paper. That way transferring the rolls to a serving plate is easy. Just lift the whole thing up with the parchment paper, place it on your plate, and slide the parchment out.
Make sure to keep a bowl in the center while baking otherwise dinner roll loose the shape. You can remove the bowl after baking and keep a little bowl of butter, cheese or a spread, if that’s your jam.
My version of Sourdough Holiday Wreath
- Has only milk powder and milk no egg. I wanted to make soft dinner roll without egg.
- Addition of potato flour will retain the moisture in the bread and keep it softer for few days.
- This is not sweet dinner rolls as it has only 3 tablespoons of sugar, you can make it sweeter by increasing up to 4-6 tablespoon sugar.
- This is recipe is adapted from Turkey shaped dinner rolls but with sourdough not a yeast one.
They are best on the day of baking, as warm dinner rolls are perfect for dinner table. If you want next day warm it up in the oven for 5 minutes at 350˚F.
Happy baking and Happy holidays let me know how it turned out for you.
