Difficulty levelPreparation timeRations
Medium2 h.For 9 units


  • 500 gr. integral flour
  • 20 gr. fresh yeast
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 cups water


  1. We put in a large bowl all the ingredients except water. The yeast is crushed with your fingers so that it melts well when you pour water. We mix all these ingredients with our hands.
  2. We add the water little by little and stir continuously with a spoon until a dough forms.
  3. When we have achieved a uniform mixture, knead in the bowl with your hands and leave covered with a clean cloth for an hour to rest.
  4. After this time, remove the dough from the bowl, put it on a flat surface with a little flour and knead it a little more (for 10 minutes approximately). While we will have to preheat the oven to 175º.
  5. Once kneaded, we give it an elongated shape and we take pieces and give them a rounded shape to make the rolls. We will prick them with a fork so that they cook well inside.
  6. We take a baking tray, put vegetable paper on it and place the rolls. We introduce the tray in the oven at half height and heat for 15 minutes above and below controlling that they do not burn.
  7. After this time, we take them out of the oven and let them cool.
