Kinderbrot

I remembered this recipe that we sometimes made when I was little. It’s not only really good tasting – you can also really get your children involved. Marlena LOVES to mix and knead dough. And to eat it afterwards, of course.

Kinderbrot (or Kinderbroetchen – meaning something similar to rolls) are easy and fun to make and a healthy snack.

Ingredients (for about 6-8 rolls):

1 tsp yeast
1/3 c warm milk
1/2 tsp honey

2 1/2c whole wheat flour
a little bit of salt
1 c lukewarm water
2 Tbs honey
2 Tbs melted butter

Mix the first three ingredients in a small bowl. Wait until it gets a little bubbly.

Mix everything else but the flour together. Once the mixture is smooth add yeast mix. Stir well. Add flour slowly into mix. Your kid can help stirring. Wooden spoon works best.

Once all the flour is mixed in, take dough out of bowl and knead by hand until it gets all smooth and a little shiny.

Transfer into new bowl with a little bit of oil. Let rise in a warm place until it doubles (about 30 minutes). Knead (briefly) again.

Make little or big breads. Be creative.

Put on baking sheet with parchment paper.

Let rise again for a little while.

Bake at 350F for 30 minutes (for smaller breads).

Eat pure or add butter, fruit spread etc. Tastes best warm…
