BACK OF THE BAG OATMEAL ROLLS



Back of the bag Oatmeal Rolls


I'm so inspired to bake my own bread after seeing those fluffy and wonderful bread on the net.

You know, how much I love rolled oat in baking. So decided to give this Back of The Bag Oatmeal Roll  a try. The dough is enough to make 16  moist, nutty flavored rolls or one delicious loaf of bread.

The honey in the dough adds a nice richness but you don;t actually taste it. As you can see, they turned  out awesome. My boy gobbled 3 of them as soon as it was out of the oven.

STIR FRIED CABBAGE

Stir Fried Cabbage Recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A meal isn't complete without a side dish especially vegetable.  My family prefer a simple and non spicy version of vegetable.

Here is a quick delicious recipe that you could serve with rice or as a stuffing for flat bread. This is a basic stir fry but feel free to substitute with other veggies or add shredded chicken or meat if desired.

If you have delicate palate, this is a perfect choice and isn't spicy. I like my veggies with some crunch but if you prefer a softer one,  cook it a bit longer.

BANANA CRUMB CAKE

Banana Crumb Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Baked this Egg Free Banana Crumb Cake for brunch or as a dessert.  I had some overly ripe bananas sitting on my kitchen counter.

This recipe is a perfect way to clear those bananas. It isn't a fancy cake but a moist and crumbly cake, full of flavor. This Banana Crumb Cake was lighter  than a typical banana cake. What makes this cake so special was the addition of  luscious crumb topping.

This cake was  perfect for a small gathering, it was easily completed in one sitting!

BLACK BREAD ROLLS


I bake this lighter and flavorful  Black Bread Rolls made with unsweetened cocoa, honey and instant coffee

This Black Bread  Rolls gets its color from cocoa and coffee. While it was a straight forward method but it takes a longer time to rise, mine took 2 hours to double in size. Anyway it worth to wait since this produces a remarkably pleasing roll.

Instead of having a regular loaf, I turned it into sliced rolls after brushing some butter over the dough then sprinkle sugar over the butter. It was rolled into a log then slice equally about an inch thick.

MY TIPS

Use your bread machine, it will be super easy. just put everything in the BM to prepare the dough.

Add more sugar since this recipe did not turn out very sweet, incorporate additional sugar for a bit extra sweetness

You can use other filling too, cream cheese, coconut, chopped nut are great alternatives.

BLACK BREAD ROLLS
Yield    :    10 rolls

2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp instant coffee
1/2 tablespoon cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp instant yeast
2 tablespoon melted butter
1 medium banana mashed
less than 1/2 cup warm water
2-3 tablespoon softened  butter to brush over dough
2-3 tablespoon white/brown sugar to sprinkle

METHOD

Place flour, instant coffee, cocoa and instant yeast in a mixing bowl.

In another bowl, combine melted butter, banana, salt, honey and warm water.

Add in honey mixture to the dry ingredients.


Mix well and forms into soft dough. Knead on floured board until elastic and smooth.



Transfer into greased and covered bowl, let rise until double for 1.5 to 2 hours.

Punch dough down, roll out dough into rectangle about 10 x 12 in.



Brush 2-3 tablespoon of softened butter over the top of the dough. Sprinkle sugar over the butter on the prepared dough.

Starting with long edge, roll up dough, pinch seams to seal.  Using sharp knife,  equally  cut into  1 in  thick slice.

Place cut side up in a prepared pan, flattening them slightly. Let sit for 45 minutes, towards the end of rising time, heat the oven @ 190 C.


Bake for 15 minutes, transfer onto rack to cool.
