Knight’s Bread

US

Ingredients

Metric

1 cup

warm water

236 mL

¼ ounce

dry active yeast

7 g

1 tbsp

honey

15 g

6 tbsp

melted butter, cooled

85 g

1

egg

1

6 leaves

basil, chopped finely

6 leaves

1 + ¼ cups

rye flour

145 g

1 + ½ cups

whole wheat flour

215 g

¾ cup

all-purpose flour

120 g

1 tsp

kosher salt

12 g

  1. In a large bowl, combine the water, yeast and honey and let them sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the butter, egg and basil and whisk until they are fully combined.
  3. Add the flours and salt and mix until the dough pulls away from the bowl and forms a ball.
  4. If you are kneading by hand, turn the dough out on to a lightly floured work surface and knead for 15-20 minutes.  If you are kneading with a stand mixer, knead for 10-15 minutes.
  5. To test your dough, poke it with your finger.  If the indentation bounces back, sufficient gluten has been formed.
  6. Form the dough into a ball and then transfer it to a greased bowl.
  7. Cover the dough with a clean kitchen towel and allow it to rise for 1 hour in a warm place.
  8. Cut the dough in to 12 equal pieces, roll them into balls and then place them on a parchment paper lined baking pan.
  9. Cover the pan loosely with greased plastic wrap and allow the dough to proof for 1 hour.
  10. Preheat the oven to 350°F/177°C.
  11. Cut an X in the top of each roll using a sharp knife.
  12. Bake the rolls for 17 minutes, rotate and switch the pans then bake for another 17 minutes.
