Recipe For Coiled Bread Rolls

This month for the Daring Bakers’ Challenge we were asked to make “Ensaimda” which is a Spanish Pastry that resembles a snail, hence my decision to call them Coiled Bread Rolls. It was mandatory that we used the recipe provided, but I deviated slightly. I am sure Google will not approve of a bunch of recipes suddenly appearing on the internet all in one go which are exactly the same. I could have used a sweet filling but this did not excite me too much. I wanted to take the base recipe, which is for an enriched dough, and add a savoury note to it using some nigella seeds I have had in my kitchen since June 2012! I found them while on a trip to Scotland and only when I was watching the third season of The Great British Bake Off did I get some inspiration to use them in rolls. At the same time as I made these coiled bread rolls I made a batch of chopped chicken livers. We had this for lunch over the weekend and the rolls added the perfect note to the chopped livers. They are rich and the nigella seeds impart a crunch of onion that is amazing. I took the left over rolls to work and had one with boiled eggs. I was so glad I had made the changes as the rolls worked out perfectly for my work lunch as well. The coiled bread rolls are easy to make and I hope you give them a try.

Coiled Bread Rolls
 
Ingredients
  • 50g caster sugar - I used fructose
  • 1 egg
  • 30mls olive oil
  • 300g flour
  • 8g instant yeast
  • 120mls water
  • 3g fine salt
  • 10mls nigella seeds
  • 100g butter, divided
  • Canola oil for greasing
Method
  1. Place the sugar, egg and olive oil into a stand mixer bowl and whisk until combined
  2. Add the flour, yeast and water
  3. With a dough hook attachment, knead the mixture for 1 minute on a medium speed
  4. Add the salt and nigella seeds
  5. Knead for 5 minutes until soft and pliable
  6. Remove the dough from the bowl, lightly grease it and place the dough back in the bowl
  7. Cover and leave to rise for 2 hours
  8. Knock back the dough and turn out onto a lightly oiled surface
  9. Divide equally into 4 pieces and shape each piece into a ball
  10. Shape each ball into a fat sausage
  11. Roll each sausage into a rectangle as thin as possible
  12. Spread 25g of the butter onto each rectangle in a thin layer (use your hands to make it easy to do)
  13. Stretch each rectangle using your hands into a larger rectangle
  14. Roll lengthwise as tightly as possible into a long sausage shape
  15. Roll the sausage to lengthen it slightly
  16. Coil each sausage loosely to resemble a snail shell
  17. Place each coil onto a lined baking tray
  18. Cover with lightly oiled cling film and leave to prove for an hour
  19. Preheat the oven to 180° Celsius
  20. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown in colour
  21. Cool on a wire rack

  7. These rolls do look easy to make! Wish I could smell them cooking in my oven right now. And they’d accompany just about any soup or stew perfectly. Hot out of the oven of course. Love the coiled look.
