So having said I would only bake one thing from each bake off week I have already made two from bread week. I was impressed with Ruby for making a peacock out of bread, something I would never have thought of, let alone have attempted! The judges were impressed with her flavour though too and not just its looks, and I have to say I was tempted to try it myself.
So these morning rolls were conceived, as I may have mentioned I was not going to make peacock!
The recipe can be found here, along with the instructions for making the peacock, should you wish to try.
I divided the recipe by 3 and got 6 rolls.
To the basic mix I added the zest of a whole orange, and the crushed seeds of three cardamom pods. Once I had kneaded the dough I then added 1/2 of my chopped white chocolate and briefly kneaded it in.
After the first proving I rolled the dough into a rectangle, sprinkle over the crushed seeds of 3 more cardamom pods, a tablespoon of caster sugar and the remaining white chocolate. I then rolled up the dough, cut into 6 equal buns and then set on a baking tray covered with parchment to rise for a further 30 minutes.
At this point I covered the dough and left in the fridge overnight.
To bake the rolls I heated the oven to 140C (fan) and cooked for 20-25 minutes.
They were delicious. Thank you for the idea Ruby!
