Break bread

Soms kun je een deeg gewoon in een ander vorm bakken zodat het iets heel anders lijkt. Dit breekbrood heeft hetzelfde deeg als de witte bolletjes.

White buns

  • 500 gr flour
  • 25 gr fresh yeast or 7 grams dry
  • 1,5 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 300 ml water, (vegetable) milk or a mixture of these two


  • Heat the water or milk until it is lukewarm.
  • Add the fresh yeast to the heated water/milk with the sugar and mix well. Put a tea towel over it and let it sit for 15 minutes until it has a decent foam hat. If you have a stone countertop, place a wooden board under it so that the liquid doesn't cool down too quickly.
  • Mix the flour with the yeast in a mixing bowl and knead this mixture.
  • When the mixture is combined, add the salt and oil. Yeast does not tolerate salt well, which is why the salt is added later.
  • Mix it with a food processor with dough hook or knead by hand on a floured work surface. The dough should feel smooth and dry. Put a little oil in a clean bowl and put the dough in it, cover it with a damp tea towel and put it in a warm place to rise. This will take about an hour.
  • When the dough has doubled in volume, you can take it out of the bowl and knead it again. This doesn't take long, just enough to get the air out.
  • Divide the ball into 8 equal parts. Form beautiful buns from 7 parts while rotating on the workbench and arrange them in a shape of 20 cm in diameter. Make a braid from the 8th part.
  • Put the break bread under a tea towel for another half hour, for the second rise.
  • Preheat the oven to 210 degrees.
  • After the second rise, brush the buns with beaten egg yolk and place in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • They are best fresh. If you can't finish them on the first day, you can heat them in the oven the next day before eating them.
