Yoghurt Rolls with caramelized Hazelnuts


The Yoghurt Whole Wheat Toast, a Variation of my Whole Wheat Sandwich-Bread that Lutz baked make me longing of a Yoghurtbread or Roll. Yoghurt in bread is something delicious. As a Breakfast roll we like the yoghurt sesame rolls very much. But always the same kind of rolls is boring and so I decided to bake some similar rolls but this time with whole spelt flour, some honey and caramelised hazelnuts – that is a delicious mixture.

When you prepare the caramelized hazelnuts I can recommend to make more then the recipe asked for. Then you can snack some and put some in the dough. I had to struggle with myself not to eat all of the nuts at once – they are so good! I roasted the nuts in the oven instead of roasting in a pan to get  more even roasted nuts.

The rolls are as delicious as I hoped for, slightly tartish from the yoghurt with a distinct sweetness from the honey and the nuts.

Yoghurt Rolls with caramelized Hazelnuts

Caramelized  Hazelnuts:

  • 100g Hazelnuts
  • 35g sugar
  • 10g water


  • 410g Yoghurt
  • 200g Flour Type 550
  • 200g Spelt, freshly milled
  • 3g fresh yeast
  • 30g Honey
  • 10g Salt
  • Caramelized  Hazelnuts

Roast the hazelnuts in the oven at 150 °C for 35 min. Rub away the loose skin with a towel. Cook sugar and water in a pan until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the nuts and continue stirring. First the hazelnuts will be coated with with a sandy sugar coat which will melt and starts to caramelize. When the caramel has a nice golden hue, remove the nuts from the pan and let cool on a plate.

At the evening dissolve yeast in yoghurt and mix with the other ingredients until homogenous. Ferment at room temperature.

The next Morning: Heat the Baking stone to 250°C. In the meantime flat the dough on a well floured square with a length of 40 cm. Fold from left and right to the middle, then from top and bottom so that the resulting square has a length of 20 cm.

Use a dough scrapper to cut 9 square rolls. Proof for 40 min.

Bake at 250°C for 18 min on a preheated bread baking stone with steam.

    Die sehen ja wirklich lecker aus und klingen auch total super. Allerdings kommen die karamellisierten Haselnüsse etwas kurz in deiner Beschreibung. Wie verfährst du denn dann weiter damit? Trennen und im Ganzen an die Brötchen machen ist ja wohl nicht so gut. Grob hacken oder was? Da wäre ich für eine Erläuterung dankbar. Die wären sicher auch was für meinen Sohn.

      @Antje: Doch, ich habe die Nüsse als ganzes hinzugeben. Einfach zusammen mit dem Mehl zum Teig hinzugeben. Aber wenn du sie lieber hacken möchtest, das würde schmeckt bestimmt auch gut!
