Rolls with Italian herbs

This is already the fourth month I bake with pre-mixed flour of Schmidt. This month I choose Rex Milano. As the name suggests it’s filled with Italian herbs, sundried tomatoes and cheese. The kitchen smelled like a pizzeria. It’s easy dough to work with. The only question that came to my mind was about adding salt. I followed the recipe Schmidt gave me and didn’t include salt and it turned out ok.

The rolls smell very Italian and the soft crumb has a nice yellow golden color. This roll goes well with soup. It’s nice to taste bits of sundried tomatoes and Italian herbs.

Name                                       Rolls with Italian herbs
Adapted from 
Yields                                       7 rolls
Dough temp.                            24°C
Mixing                                      2 + 6 minutes (medium consistency)
Fermentation                           60 minutes
Shape                                      rolls
Proof at roomtemp.                 60 – 90 minutes until fully
Bake 220°C                              20 minutes

This is what I used:

Bakers formula                      %          grams
Flour                                      100       500
Water                                      52        260
Salt                                          0          0         

Final Dough
Rex Milano                                           250
Unbleached AP                                     250
Olive oil                                               15
Yeast                                                   7.5
Salt (in Rex Milano)                               0
Water                                                  260

This is what I did:
The dough: all ingredients are mixed until all was well combined, this took about 2 minutes. Then I mixed on second speed for 6 minutes. The dough should be supple, with moderate gluten development.

Bulk Fermentation:
 transfer the dough to a slightly oiled containers, cover and leave for 1  hour. 

Shaping: I divided the dough into 7 pieces and loosely pre shaped into balls. Covered with a towel and left for 15 minutes to rest. I shaped all balls firmly and placed them in to proof.  

Proofing: I proofed the rolls for 90 minutes until they are fluffy. This depends on the temperature in your kitchen.

Pre heating: I pre heated the oven to 220°C.

Preparing and Baking: I baked the rolls for 20 minutes until the tops were golden.

Cooling: Let the rolls cool completely on a wire rack.
