Recipes with bread

Germany has its own bread culture. Counting bread and rolls, there are over 3000 different types of bread -- so many that there are always attempts to have it declared part of the world's cultural heritage. The number of possible variations is infinite, as the following recipes demonstrate.

Cracked Wheat-Quark Rolls on a Stick

Makes 8-10 rolls


  • 300 gregular wholemeal flour
  • 100 gcoarse wholemeal flour
  • 300 gstrong flour
  • 300 mlwater
  • 7 gdried yeast
  • 10 gsea salt
  • 250 gquark (20% fat)
  • 8-10pieces of split beech wood, each about an inch thick
  • Cracked wheat, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds for sprinkling on rolls (optional)


1. The day before, mix together the different flour types. In a bowl, combine 100 g of this mixture with 200 ml water and a pinch of yeast. Cover bowl and let stand overnight at room temperature.

2. Combine pre-dough with all the other ingredients plus 150 ml water and process until you have a smooth dough - it's easiest using an electric mixer with a dough hook. Let the dough rise for about 30 minutes.

3. Carefully and thoroughly knead the dough once more by hand and shape into the size rolls you want. Pour boiling water over the beech wood.

4. Place rolls on a baking sheet and press a stick of wood into the centre of each roll. Brush rolls with water and, if desired, sprinkle with grains and seeds. Allow to rise for about 30 minutes using NEFF's dough proving function. Preheat oven to 250°C.

5. When they've finished rising, place rolls in the oven on the middle shelf, reduce temperature to 200°C and bake for about 30 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
