Baking your own bread isn't difficult. Especially this recipe for orange rolls with walnuts is quite easy. With a hint of orange and a crunchy bite.
Do you know what my favorite Sunday breakfast feels like? When I’ve got a great homemade smell of bread through my house. So that’s what I’m doing a lot of my own bread baking at Saturday (and warm it up on Sunday, yeah I know I cheat a bit, but that’s for the greater good). When they're hot I smear a layer of butter on my roll and top it with a thick slice of cheese and cress. I simply love that.
Accompanied with a nice glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and as a dessert a cup of coffee. Sunday’s is our free day and I love to enjoy a long and lazy breakfast.
Usually I also bake a special (sweet) bread: a croissant, homemade sausage rolls, cinnamon sugar sandwiches (very special and look so beautiful) or nutella twist bread. All fine. But variation is great and so are these orange rolls with walnuts.
It's a good taste!
