  • 400 g/ 14.1 oz/ 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour See note + more for sprinkling
  • 100 g/ 3.5 oz/ 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 350 ml/ 11.8 fl.oz/ 1 2/3 cups lukewarm water
  • 25 g/ 0.9 oz fresh yeast or 2 ½ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt


  • Start in the evening, 12 hours before you want to bake the yeast rolls.
  • Dissolve the fresh yeast into the lukewarm water.
  • Place all the ingredients in the kitchen machine and knead for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Place the dough in a bowl and cover well. If the bowl doesn't have a lid, cover it well with cling film.
  • Place the bowl in the refrigerator and leave it there until the next morning, for about 12 hours.
  • The next morning preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius/ 430 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Generously sprinkle the dough in the bowl with flour. Break large clumps of dough, about 12-14, directly out of the bowl and place them on the prepared baking tray.
  • Place the tray in a warm spot and let the rolls rest for about 15 minutes.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. Enjoy warm or cold.



Spelt flour can be used instead, 400 g/ 3 1/3 cups white spelt flour and 100 g/ 3/4 cup whole spelt flour.
