Fresh chestnuts for Festive Chestnut Bread Rolls

Recipe Ingredients

6 ounces whole meal flour
6 ounces white flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg or cinnamon
1/2 ounce fresh yeast (or 1 teaspoon dried yeast)
2 teaspoons sugar
8 ounces hot water
4 ounces chestnuts (cooked weight), chopped
To glaze: soya milk

Recipe Directions

Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, stir the flours, salt, and the nutmeg and/or cinnamon.

Cream the yeast, sugar together, and add a little hot water. Mix well and leave in a warm place for 5 minutes, until frothy. Pour the yeast mixture over the flour in the bowl and add enough water, one-tablespoon at a time, to make stiff, but not sticky, dough. Tip the dough out onto a floured work surface and knead for ten minutes.

Place the dough in a clean, lightly oiled bowl, cover with a clean tea towel or loose cling film and leave in a warm place until doubled in size (about 1 hour).

Punch the dough down, turn out onto a floured surface, add the chopped chestnuts and knead for 5 minutes, making sure the chestnuts are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.

Divide into 6 balls and shape into rolls. Allow to prove by leaving the rolls in a warm place for 20 to 30 minutes, until well risen.

Glaze with Soya milk and bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the pre-heated oven. If the rolls sound hollow when tapped on the base, they are cooked.
