Dill onion wheat roll ディルオニオン全粒小麦ロール

japanese cake

This is another contribution from my wife. This is a dill onion wheat roll. Although this is a whole wheat roll, it is soft and moist with nice flavors of dill and onion. This roll can be eaten on any occasion but we really enjoy it for breakfast. Although, we put in lots of chopped fresh dill, you cannot see it in the cut surface yet the flavor is unmistakable. Since it is so soft and moist with lots of flavors no need for butter.


2 package of active dry yeast

1/4 cup warm water

1/4 cup honey

2 cups cottage cheese

2 Tbs. grated fresh onion

4 Tbs. butter melted

1 cup dill weed

3 Tsp. salt

1/2 Tsp. baking soda

2 eggs

4 – 4 1/2 cups whole wheat flour


Put cottage cheese, honey, onion, butter, dill weed, salt and soda in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using a paddle beater mix thoroughly. Add the eggs and continue stirring. Dissolve yeast in warm water with 1 tsp. sugar dissolved to bloom. Add the yeast to the other liquid ingredients. Switch to a dough hook and add 3 cups of whole wheat flour. (my wife forgot to switch to the dough hook and continued kneading with the paddle. The mixer made a really strange racket but it processed the dough anyway) Add the remaining whole wheat flour. If more flour is needed to make the dough come together use regular white bread flour. When the dough comes together knead for 7 to 10 minutes until smooth. (Dough may not form a ball on the hook but as long as it comes in contact with the hook it is being kneaded). Place in a greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down and make into 3 Oz. round balls. Place in a greased baking pan with enough room for them to continue rising. Cover and let rise until doubled. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 18 to 20 minutes until they are browned and sound hollow when tapped. Remove from pan immediately and cool on a rack.

Although we put a large amount of fresh dill, as the picture shows it is hardly visible but the flavor is definitely there along with a pleasant muted flavor of onion. It also had a slight sweetness. When my wife realized that the bread had been kneaded with the paddle instead of the dough hook she was worried the rolls might turn out dry and dense. Yeast bread, however, is very forgiving and the rolls were really soft and moist especially for whole wheat bread. We really like this bread. This can be good for breakfast or with dinner.
